Explore these fascinating volumes by significant English literary figure and Roman Catholic priest Robert Hugh Benson. Benson was a noted author of fiction, as well as a persuasive writer of sermons, essays, and poems. A novelist at heart, Benson wrote works that appealed to the common man. His dystopian book Lord of the World was one of the first of its kind and perfectly captured the danger of replacing faith with the “modern mentality.” Benson’s conversion from an Anglican priest to a Catholic priest, his deep and abiding affection for his Anglican brothers, and his ability to speak to the common man all offer a unique perspective and valuable guidance on living the Christian life of grace, faith, and charity.
