Reviews - What do customers think about Conversion: The Spiritual Journey of a Twentieth-Century Pilgrim?

One of the most intriguing spiritual journeys of modern times!  Feb 16, 2006
I only recently discovered Muggeridge, and am so thrilled by the writings and the legacy he left behind. What a dear, honest man! He writes so fluently and gracefully, with utter humility and self-reproach as well as reproaching society for all its moral and emotional decay. His wisdom was truly from God. His eyes were opened to the fate of mortal man, and he explores this theme with clarity and a shockingly ironic tone. I love this guy!! Bless his memory; may his words never be forgotten!
The Third Chronicle of Mr. M.  Jul 13, 2005
This is the last book Mr. M. wrote, and the only one after becoming Catholic. It was previously published in England as "Conversion" and in America as "Confessions of a Twentieth Century Pilgrim". This paperback is the third title variation. It's sort of two books in one. Since there never was a third and concluding volume of his autobiography, The Chronicles of Wasted Time, Conversion sort of fills that bill. Second, MM follows his stated intent of reflecting on conversion. Intertwining the two approaches allows the author to slide back and forth between them.

Had not Muggeridge already wrritten two volumes of an unimaginably good autobiography, this book might get five stars. Its four star rating is merely relative to these others. That said, almost anything anyone likes about reading MM is here in spades. It's full of self-relfective bits, some of which recur in his other writings. The form allows memory to traverse backwards, dipping down here and there for the amusing anecdote and diverting story, yet these nearly always usher into some shaking insight as from a saint in the making--or maybe a gargoyle, laughing down from his steep perch midway between two worlds.

He refers to himself in the third person, as "the student," "the journalist," or "the soldier," thus avoiding the problematic "I" of the autobiography, and allowing him to revisit and comment on the range of experiences covered more closely in the Chronicles and elsewhere. He also writes from memory, whether quoting St. Augustine and Simone Weil, or recalling his own adventures, with very little attribution.

Conversion, for Muggeridge, wasn't a late in life one-time experience (as might be thought), but a slow process over time, definitively formed when he met Mother Teresa, and continuing throughout life. Seasoned readers of Mr. M. may find this to be the best part of the book, which includes a letter from Mother Teresa and musings on The Cloud of Unknowing. Readers new to MM will also find this a good place to start, as he briefly touches here and there on topics that he delves deeper into in other books. Thus, Conversion is both a third Chronicle and a sort of road map leading readers to discover the inimitable MM.
