Joseph Pearce is foremost Catholic biographer of our time, but it wasn’t always so. Imagine discovering God for the first time in the confines of a jail cell. Imagine spending the first half of your life amidst the seedy underground of the white supremacy movement before becoming one of the foremost Religious scholars in the world. Imagine being converted by the writings of Chesterton, and years later writing a biography on him. Joseph Pearce doesn’t have to imagine it – he lived it.
Growing up on the rough streets of Dagenham, England, Joseph Pearce was thrown into a life that led anywhere but to God and salvation. A world of hate and violence was all he knew, until one day he picked up the writings of G.K. Chesterton and everything changed. In Race With the Devil, take a journey through the peaks and valleys of one of the most fascinating conversion stories of our time, written first-hand by Pearce himself. Even those who are unfamiliar with him will not be able to put the book down!
