The Power and the Glory is told from the point of view of a third-person omniscient narrator. While the narrator tends to focus on one character per section, there are moments when multiple character perspectives are considered.
The Power and the Glory is written in the past tense.
The verbally ironic title The Power and the Glory comes from the expression of praise to God often recited at the end of the Christian prayer the Lord's Prayer (or Our Father): "For thine is the kingdom and the power and glory, for ever and ever, Amen." The religious characters in the novel, however, have no power and no glory.
