You know him as the great Catholic biographer of our time; the man who has celebrated and chronicled the lives and works of literary luminaries, from Shakespeare to Chesterton to Tolkien. But did you know that Joseph Pearce was once the leader of a white-supremacist, British-nationalist group? Or that he was imprisoned twice for inciting racial hatred?

Now, discover in Pearce’s own words his exhilarating, jaw-dropping, and ultimately
triumphant story of conversion.

Race with the Devil is one man’s incredible journey from racist revolutionary to joyful Christian, but it is also much more. It is a testament to God’s grace poured out on his people, and a reminder that we can all turn—or return—to Christ and his Church.

Al Kresta, President and CEO of Ave Maria Radio says, “It’s been a long time since I’ve read a spiritual memoir with such enthusiasm.”

    Wow. The gamut that this book runs astonishes me. I literally laughed out loud, caught my breath, cried, and was deeply moved by this book. Joseph Pearce manages to tell a story that is funny, powerful, tragic, joyful and inspiring… sometimes all of these within one page. How does he do that? Because he’s telling the truth of his own life, and as GKC says, “Truth, of course, must of necessity be stranger than fiction, for we have made fiction to suit ourselves.” Pearce’s life is the truth of the power of the Gospel. And this is a truth worth telling.
