Robert Hugh Benson is a new biography of Edwardian England's most famous priest-novelist. Benson was born into one of the most prominent religious and literary families in England. As the son of the Archbishop of Canterbury, his conversion to Catholicism and ordination created a sensation. Benson wrote powerful, imaginative novels and historical novels about the English martyrs. Despite a personal affinity for a simple life and solitude, his books and speaking ability brought him great fame. He spoke to massive gatherings in both England and America on contemporary topics in addition to religion. Benson succeeded as a writer and literary influence, while also playing a part in converting thousands of Anglicans to the Catholic Church, causing much controversy in his home country.
