A biographical exploration into the spiritual lives of some of the greatest writers in the English language this century

The twentieth century has been marked both by belief and unbelief. While attendance at church has declined dramatically, the lives of many of the greatest leaders have been influenced and inspired by Christianity.

In LITERARY CONVERTS Joseph Pearce explores the world of some of the finest writers in the English language who have believed. Most of those included converted to Roman Catholicism and some to Anglicanism. The list is like a ‘Who’s Who’ of the last one hundred years: 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.
