Based on a collection of television scripts from an acclaimed Brithish series, Muggeridge presents his Third Testament as a collection of noble souls (such as Augustine, Blake, Pascal, Tolstoy and Kierkegaard) who, in their respective ages, relate ''time to eternity.'' Often compared to G.K. Chesterton and C.S. Lewis for his stylistic mastery of the English language, Muggeridge converted to Catholicism in his eighties, formalizing a faith eclipsing gnosticism, fleshed out by the lives of those around him. As he writes, ''There is no imagery that can convey even the similitude of God, let alone forecast His purposes; to know Him at all we are beholden to the great mercy of the incarnation.'
