”Wherever God erects a house of prayer, The Devil always builds a chapel there; And ’twill be found, upon examination, The later has the largest congregation.”

The author Daniel Defoe was born in London in 1660 and he died in London in 1731.

His father was a butcher. His father’s name was James Foe
Daniel changed it into Defoe after his bankruptcy. His parents were active in church and forced him to study to become a priest. He married a rich girl in 1684.

When he was young he worked for an export company. But he quit it and started to work with socks. He worked with socks until he was 35 years old. He went bankrupt and started to write. After two years he published his first book. It was called “An Essay upon Projects”
The book was about his thoughts. He thought that everyone could improve as a human by choosing the right way. After that book he was involved in debates about politics. He became a journalist. Everyone thought that he had amazing skills as a journalist. In 1702 he wrote "The Shortest Way with Dissenters". He was put in jail because of that book, the defendant wrote about other religions. He had to stay in jail for about 6months.
He was editor for a political magazine from 1703 to 1714. The magazine was called “The Review”.

In 1719 he released his most famous book. Almost everyone knows what the book is called. It was “Robinson Crusoe”. Some people think that he got the idea from the Scottish person that was shipwrecked for about 5 years. The person’s name was Alexander Selkirsk.

One of his masterpieces was the book he wroth about the plague “A Journal of the Plague Year” and he wrote it in 1722.
