He gave an incorrect date of birth. He was born on 11 October 1909 and not 26 October that year. At the age of 15, he joined the French Communist Party after reading Maxim Gorki's The Mother, a novel which made a lasting impression on him and led him to abandon individualism as he himself recalls in the nearest we have to an autobiography From Karl Marx to Jesus Christ. According to his book Atheism in Our Time, Lepp was an atheist and Marxist for many years and claimed to have occupied important positions in the communist party with whom he later became very disillusioned. He then converted to Roman Catholicism and was ordained a priest in 1941. He wrote many non-fiction books including some about atheism, religion, and later psychiatry, as he was a psychologist and psychoanalyst. He wrote among other books: The Ways of Friendship, The Psychology of Loving, The Authentic Existence, The Communication of Existences. He also wrote The faith of men; meditations inspired by Teilhard de Chardin (Teilhard et la foi des homme), about the French thinker Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. (en)
  • Ignace Lepp (John Robert Lepp; 26 de octubre, 1909, Orajõe, Pärnumaa, Estonia - 29 de mayo, 1966, cerca de París) fue un escritor francés. Hijo de un capitán naval, nació a bordo de un barco en el Mar Báltico en donde creció junto a su hermano hasta los cinco años, bajo el cuidado de su madre. A los 15 años, se unió al Partido comunista francés después de leer "la madre” de Gorki, una novela que lo impresionó en forma duradera y lo llevó a abandonar individualismo. En su libro "De Marx a Cristo" cuenta sus inicios como activista comunista, relata sus contactos con altos dirigentes soviéticos y cómo llegó a ser uno de los máximos dirigentes de los intelectuales revolucionarios de Europa. Posteriormente, decepcionado del comunismo y de las incongruencias de sus dirigentes, se convierte al catolicismo romano. El punto de inflexión fue la lectura de la novela "Quo Vadis", llamándole particularmente la atención la cantidad de datos que la novela proporcionaba sobre la vida de primeras comunidades cristianas. En cierta manera reconoció en ellas el ideal de vida que había estado buscando desde su juventud. Luego de terminados sus estudios en la Facultad de Teología de la Universidad Católica de Lyon, fue ordenado sacerdote el 29 de junio de 1941, en la basílica de Fourvière. Escribió muchos libros incluyendo algunos sobre el ateísmo, religión, y más adelante psiquiatría, pues era a psicólogo y psicoanalista (es)
