Dr. Thomas Nevin has written five books. His Irving Babbitt: An Intellectual Study (Chapel Hill, 1984) was given the Alpha Sigma Nu Award from the Society of Jesus. Simone Weil (Chapel Hill, 1991) was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. Ernst Jünger and Germany: Into the Abyss, 1914-1945 (Duke, 1996 and Constable, 1997) was as vigorously attacked in Britain as it was sedulously ignored in America. His first book on Thérèse of Lisieux, popularly known as The Little Flower, appeared from Oxford University Press in November, 2006. His second book on her, The Last Years of Saint Thérèse: Doubt and Darkness, 1895-1897, also published by Oxford University Press, appeared in 2013. He is currently working on a manuscript directed toward the five hundredth anniversary of the Reformation.
