Malcolm Muggeridge (1903–1990), British writer and social critic, was one of the most brilliant controversialists and media personalities of his generation. Gregory Wolfe's acclaimed biography draws on unpublished diaries, correspondence, interviews, and Muggeridge's prolific writings to chronicle the long and turbulent life of this legendary figure. Wolfe demonstrates the underlying unity—spiritual and intellectual—that runs through the many phases of Muggeridge's career. According to Wolfe, Muggeridge, like St. Augustine, endured a lifelong conflict between flesh and spirit, between deep involvement in the world and the need to withdraw from it. Ultimately though, Muggeridge, one of the finest prose stylists of the twentieth century, was a passionate pilgrim in the pursuit of truth and a defender of the Christian faith who deserves to take his place alongside G. K. Chesterton and C. S. Lewis.
