Book summary

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. [via]
