Peter Singer: Soul-Winner for Jesus

Here.  Apparently this woman, from Oxford, left Singer's lectures with "intellectual vertigo", which drove her eventually to Christianity.

I know a philosopher who became a Christian after reading Albert Camus's The Plague.

Way back in college (in 1974) I had a good friend who became a Christian after reading The Lord of the Rings.

Come to think of it, my own reading of Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov in the late 1960s played a huge role in my becoming a committed Christian. (I had always technically been one, being a "Cradle Catholic".)

Dostoevsky and Tolkien were Christians, not too surprising. There is a rumor that Camus converted close to his death.A minister, claimed to have witnessed his conversion. Even so Camus is talking about great ideas and fictional narrative spurs imagination. All of that makes more sense than Singer.
