Literary Converts is a biographical exploration into the spiritual lives of
some of the greatest writers in the English language: Oscar Wilde, Evelyn
Waugh, C.S. Lewis, Malcolm Muggeridge, Graham Greene, Edith Sitwell,
Siegfried Sassoon, Hilaire Belloc, G.K. Chesterton, Dorothy Sayers, T.S.
Eliot and J.R.R. Tolkien. The role of George Bernard Shaw and H.G. Wells in
intensifying the religious debate despite not being converts themselves is
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.
