The Sparrow

After music broadcast from another planet is detected, the Jesuits secretly send a mission to make contact. Although, the plot involves interplanetary travel and alien life forms this is not really sci-fi. It is a book about faith and moral courage. It is beautifully realized and written. Its sequel, "Children of God", is equally good -- and, more importantly, necessary to full appreciation of "The Sparrow."
