    About The Book

    Based on an acclaimed TV series, this illuminating collection of portraits brings to life seven men in search of God – seven maverick thinkers whose seeking for Christian discipleship make for unforgettable reading.

    Saint Augustine, a headstrong young hedonist and speechwriter who turned his back on money and prestige in order to serve Christ...

    Blaise Pascal, a brilliant scientist who warned people against thinking they could live without God...

    William Blake, a magnificent artist and poet who pled passionately for the life of the spirit and foresaw the plight that materialism would usher in...

    Soren Kierkegaard, a renegade philosopher who spent most of his life at odds with the church, and insisted that every person must find his own way to God...

    Fyodor Dostoevsky, a debt-ridden writer and sometime prisoner who found, in the midst of squalor and political turmoil, the still small voice of God...

    Leo Tolstoy, a grand old novelist who swung between idealism and depression, loneliness and fame--and a dual awareness of his sinfulness and God's grace.

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a pastor whose writings--and agonized involvement in a plot to kill Hitler--cost him his life, but continue to inspire millions.

    The Author: Often compared to G.K. Chesterton and C.S. Lewis, British writer and television commentator Malcolm Muggeridge (1903-1990) is best known for having introduced Mother Teresa to the English-speaking world through his classic biography Something Beautiful for God. A tart-tongued agnostic for most of his life, Muggeridge converted to Catholicism at 80. But he never stopped asking questions, which surely explains his enduring appeal.
