Reviews

"Joseph Pearce's new book races with the throbbing pace of a Graham Greene novel. To live in light and in love, he must climb a steep dark mountain. Pearce has crafted a heart-pounding book, a thing of beauty that kicks the mind with spur after spur." - Michael Novak, American Enterprise Institute "This powerful memoir offers a mood of confession, rather than self-flagellation, a tangible witness to the transforming power of the gospel, and evidence that the dividing line between good and evil does not run through nations or parties but through the soul of every human being. Let the world and the church pay heed!" - Louis Markos, Professor in English and Scholar in Residence, Houston Baptism University" "This book is a lively, informative, and many times a suprising book of a life, the contours of which most of us had no idea. Pearce always writes well and vividly. This book itself belongs to that Catholic 'literary tradition' about which Pearce writes of so well." - James V. Schall, S.J., Emeritus Professor, Georgetown University " "Race With the Devil"is a harrowing - and exhilarating - account of how God laid hold of a tumultuous soul and brought it to joy. Very highly recommended." - Dr. Thomas Howard, On Being Catholic" "Joseph Pearce's story of imprisonment for racial antagonism and his encounter with the rosary should go down as one of the most compelling beginnings of a conversion in print. Pearce's candor, direct style, and purged heart force our own examination of conscience and assurance of mercy. It's been a long time since I read a spiritual memoir with such enthusiasm and I already knew the story from years of friendship with Joe. Reading it, however, raised it to the dignity and public seriousness it deserves." - Al Kresta, President and CEO, Ave Maria Radio ""Race With the Devil""is a harrowing - and exhilarating - account of how God laid hold of a tumultuous soul and brought it to joy. Very highly recommended." - Dr. Thomas Howard, "On Being Catholic"" ""Race With the Devil"" is a harrowing - and exhilarating - account of how God laid hold of a tumultuous soul and brought it to joy. Very highly recommended." - Dr. Thomas Howard, "On Being Catholic"
