A whisky priest's shortcomings may include many vices, but usually include alcoholism. Graham Greene cites another person using the term in his travel book, Lawless Road, published in 1939. Greene also used "whisky priest" to refer to the unnamed main character in his 1940 novel The Power and the Glory.

As much a critique of Britain in 1936 as a warning of what might still be averted by determined action, the novel is not however a political tract but an eminently readable work of fiction. For anyone interested in literature between the two wars, or anyone interested in Nazism, it's probably worth a read. 2 people found this helpful.
