Georges Bernanos was the author of the modern literary and religious classic, Diary of a Country Priest, in which he explored the Christian mystery of redemption through love. According to Hans Urs von Balthasar, Bernanos is a key figure for our times in the relationship between theology and literature.

In this selection of Bernanos' most significant works Joan: Heretic and Saint, Sermon of an Agnostic on the Feast of St Thérèse, and Dialogues of the Carmelites we find theological and psychological insight interwoven with a profound sense of historical drama: a masterly exploration of heroic innocence in a group of extraordinary Christian women.
