The internationally acclaimed author of bestsellers such as G.K. Chesterton: Wisdom and Innocence (Ignatius, 1997), Literary Converts (Ignatius, 2000), Tolkien: Man and Myth (Ignatius, 2001), Solzhenitsyn:  A Soul in Exile (Baker Books, 2001), The Quest for Shakespeare (Ignatius, 2008) and Old Thunder:  A Life of Hilaire Belloc (Ignatius, 2002), Joseph Pearce is a world-recognized biographer of modern Christian literary figures.  Pearce’s books have been published and translated into several languages.

Pearce converted to the Catholic faith in 1989 as a result of  “becoming friends” with several 20-century literary figures he researched who had been Christians, and ultimately converts to Catholicism – particularly G.K. Chesterton.  As a younger man, Pearce was “extremely anti-Catholic” and even had opposed Pope John Paul II’s visits to England.  His earlier viewpoint gradually shifted as he learned more about the writings and beliefs of the literary converts he would eventually profile.

Dr. Pearce is Writer-in-Residence at Thomas More College in New Hampshire.
