    Malcom Muggeridge (1903-1990), British writer and social critic. A biography chronicling his journey from atheism/socialist to Christian. Unless your somewhat familiar with the reigning literary figures in England during the early part of the twentieth to mid-century you will find this book a boring read.

A biography chronicling his journey from atheism/socialist to Christian. Unless your somewhat familiar with the reigning literary figures in England during the early part of the twentieth to mid-century you will find this book a boring read. A sample of his writing: "Marx and Freud are the two great destroyers of Christian civilization, the first replacing the gospel of love by the gospel of hate, the other undermining the essential concept of human responsibility." {My Life in Pictures, New York: William Morrow & Co., 1987, 94} "Marx and Kierkegaard, the two key voices of the twentieth century. The curious thing is that though Marx purported to have an infallible scientific key to history, almost all his prophecies have failed to happen. On the other hand, Kierkegaard's forecasts have been fulfilled to a remarkable degree. Take for instance his profound sense that if men lost the isolation, the separateness, which awareness of the presence of God alone can give, they would soon find themselves irretrievably part of a collectivity with only mass communications to shape their hopes, formulate their values and arrange their thinking . . ." {A Third Testament, New York: Ballantine Books, 1976, 104-106} "The greatest artists, saints, philosophers and, until quite recent times, scientists, through the Christian centuries, . . . have all assumed that the New Testament promise of eternal life is valid, and that the great drama of the Incarnation which embodies it, is indeed the master-drama of our existence. To suppose that these distinguished believers were all credulous fools whose folly and credulity in holding such beliefs has now been finally exposed, would seem to me untenable; and anyway I'd rather be wrong with Dante and Shakespeare and Milton, with Augustine of Hippo and Francis of Assisi, with Dr Johnson, Blake and Dostoevsky than right with Voltaire, Rousseau, the Huxleys, Herbert Spencer, H.G. Wells and Bernard Shaw." {Vintage Muggeridge, ed. Geoffrey Barlow, Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans, 1985, 32-33} If you like that, you might try giving this biography a read.
