The twentieth century has been marked by both belief and unbelief. While church attendance has declined, the lives of many of the more salient figures of our times have been influenced and inspired by Christianity.
Literary Converts is a biographical exploration into the spiritual lives of some of those figures. It takes us on a journey into the deepest beliefs of some of the great writers in the English language – from G.K. Chesterton to Evelyn Waugh, Edith Sitwell to Siegfried Sassoon.
Many will be intrigued to know more about what inspired their literary heroes; others will find the association of such names with Christian belief controversial. Whatever our viewpoint, Literary Converts touches on some of the more important questions of the twentieth century, making it a fascinating read.
