The conversion of a hateful Englishman

He was once a leader of a
British-nationalist, white-supremacist group . . .

. . . now he’s the world’s foremost Catholic biographer.

He once disseminated literature
extolling the virtues of the white race. . .

. . . now he publishes books
celebrating the great Catholic cultural traditions.


Joseph Pearce’s remarkable story from racial hatred to rational love is a testament to God's infinite grace and active hand among us.

Becoming involved in radical politics at the age of fifteen, Joseph quickly found himself at the center of the racial and national tensions—often violent—that swirled around London in the late-1970s and early 80s.

In fact, he became a top member of the National Front and the editor of its newspaper, Bulldog.
So deep was he in racial causes that he traveled to Ireland and became involved with Protestant Irish Loyalist groups, fighting in the streets against Catholics.

A lengthy prison sentence for inciting racial hatred (for a second time) caused him to explore more deeply an already nascent—and, to him, troubling—attraction to the Catholic Church.

In Race with the Devil: My Journey from Racial Hatred to Rational Love, Pearce will take you through his journey from racist revolutionary to loving Christian, including . . .

  • The youthful influences that lead him to embrace the National Front and their racist platform.
  • His dark, angry, exhilarating—but ultimately empty—days as a revolutionary on the front lines.
  • His friendship with Skrewdriver front-man and neo-Nazi hero, Ian Stuart.
  • His days as a literary, musical, and political mover of England’s racist underground.
  • His imprisonment and subsequent “dark night of the soul.”
  • The role that Catholic luminaries such as G. K. Chesterton, Hilaire Belloc, and C. S. Lewis played in his conversion from racist radical to joyful Christian.
  • And his eventual reception into the Catholic Church. 
Race with the Devil is one man's incredible journey to Christ, but it is also much more. It is a testament to God's hand active among us and the infinite grace that Christ pours out on his people, showing that we can all turn—or return—to Christ and his Church.
