The 20th century has been marked both by belief and unbelief. While attendance at church has declined dramatically, the lives of many leaders have been influenced and inspired by Christianity. Joseph Pearce explores the world of some writers in the English language who have believed. Most of those included converted to Roman Catholicism and some to Anglicanism. The list includes Oscar Wilde, Evelyn Waugh, C.S. Lewis, Malcolm Muggeridge, Graham Greene, George Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells, Hilaire Belloc, G.K. Chesterton, Dorothy Sayers, T.S. Eliot and J.R.R. Tolkien.

Review:

‘[An] admirable book’
A N Wilson in the Literary Review

‘[An] illuminating account of a phenomenon firmly rooted in its period’
Sunday Times Books

From the Back Cover:

The twentieth century has been marked both by belief and unbelief. While church attendance has declined, the lives of many of the most salient figures of our times have been influenced and inspired by Christianity.

'Literary Converts' is a biographical exploration into the spiritual lives of some those figures. More specifically, it takes us on a journey into the deepest beliefs of some of the greatest writers in the English language: Oscar Wilde, Evelyn Waugh, C.S.Lewis, Malcolm Muggeridge, Graham Greene, G. K. Chesterton, Dorothy Sayers, T.S. Eliot and J. R. R. Tolkien.

Many will be intrigued to know more about what inspired their literary heroes; others will find the association of such names with Christian belief surprising or even controversial. Whatever viewpoint we may have, 'Literary Converts' touches on some of the most important questions of the twentieth century, making it a fascinating read.
