Mr. Joseph Pearce is a scholar from England who is teaching English and writing at Ave Maria College in Michigan. He is the author of a number of literary biographies including: Wisdom and Innocence: A Life of G.K. Chesterton, Literary Converts, Tolkien: Man and Myth, Tolkien: A Celebration, and Old Thunder: A Life of Hilaire Belloc among others. In addition, he is a co-editor of The Saint Austin Review, an international review of Christian culture, literature and ideas. His latest book is C.S. Lewis and the Catholic Church.  
 
There are many Protestants and Catholics who have been deeply affected and spiritually changed by the writings of C.S. Lewis, including many converts to Catholicism who credit C.S. Lewis for playing a significant role in their conversion. However, the ironic and perplexing fact is that Lewis himself, while “Catholic” in many aspects of his faith and devotion, never became a Roman Catholic. Many have wondered why. Joseph Pearce addresses this question in his latest book and he will offer an analysis of all the issues, questions, and factors regarding this puzzling question.
