Description
The Sparrow is a novel about a remarkable man, a living saint, a life-long celibate and Jesuit priest, who undergoes an experience so harrowing and profound that it makes him question the existence of God. This experience--the first contact between human beings and intelligent extraterrestrial life--begins with a small mistake and ends in a horrible catastrophe.

The explorers fix that and a population explosion follows, attracting space-age cannibals who start eating them. The explorers are killed, except for the Jesuit who tells the tale.
