Lord of the world by Robert Hugh Benson( Book )

223 editions published between 1901 and 2021 in 8 languages and held by 1,541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As creeping secularism and godless humanism triumph over traditional morality, it creates a world that has been divided into three powerblocks, where religious doctrine is not tolerated and euthanasia is practiced widely. In Britain, the Royal Family has been deposed; institutions of higher learning have been closed, and a politician intent on power in the name of peace is intent on the destruction of religion. The world now has only three main religious forces: Catholicism, Secular Humanism, and "the Eastern religions." As a shrinking Church stands resolutely against him, laws are passed which require all the world's people to formally disavow the existence of God or be executed without trial

The necromancers by Robert Hugh Benson( )

80 editions published between 1907 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a real Augustinian terror of the void--in the absence of God comes real evil. In the book's climax, Maggie's love for Laurie, and a night of sincere prayer draw him back from the brink--a brink that practical, clear-headed, convent-raised Maggie glimpses in the form of the dark, fiery "personality" she confronts in the night. This "personality" can be none other than the Devil himself

Gradually memory and consciousness once more reasserted themselves and he became aware that he was lying in bed.

The history of Richard Raynal, solitary by Robert Hugh Benson( )

This fascinating fictionalized account of the life of a fifteenth-century English monk offers an engaging look at the rigors of a spiritual life -- and questions whether it is more beneficial to dedicate one's life to solitary prayer and meditation, or to try to help solve the world's problems through direct and targeted action
By what authority? by Robert Hugh Benson( Book )

76 editions published between 1900 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Great Keynes, as for most English villages and towns at this time, secular affairs were so deeply and intricately interwoven with ecclesiastical matters that none dared decide on the one question without considering its relation to the other; and ecclesiastical affairs, too, touched them more personally than any other, since every religious change scored a record of itself presently within the church that was as familiar to them as their own cottages. On none had the religious changes fallen with more severity than on the Maxwell family that lived in the Hall, at the upper and southern end of the green. Old Sir Nicholas, though his convictions had survived the tempest of unrest and trouble that had swept over England, and he had remained a convinced and a stubborn Catholic, yet his spiritual system was sore and inflamed within him. To his simple and obstinate soul it was an irritating puzzle as to how any man could pass from the old to a new faith, and he had been known to lay his whip across the back of a servant who had professed a desire to try the new religion. Although written over a hundred years ago at the time of the Elizabethan persecution of "papists", it rings true even today where it is considered "with it" to denounce the Catholic Church
Light invisible by Robert Hugh Benson( Book )

82 editions published between 1903 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Light Invisible, Robert Hugh Benson’s first novel of the sixteen total he wrote in his lifetime, is an exploration of miracles and mysticism in the natural world. Told through a series of connected anecdotes by an elderly priest, the novel purports to display what Benson called a “a faculty common to all who posses a coherent spiritual life.” This faculty is to discern divine truths in each distinct element of the manifold variety of creation, guided at all times by the ultimate wisdom of Revelation. The Light Invisible shows Benson at the earliest stage of his literary career, charting his unique path through the challenges of writing markedly Christian stories"--Cover, page 4

The human need for friendship is raised to the supernatural level in Robert Hugh Benson's timeless illustration of the greatest friendship anyone could ever possess. In The Friendship of Christ, first published in 1912, the Catholic convert son of an Archbishop of Canterbury shows how anyone can achieve a deeper relationship with God the Son.
