About In Defense Of Sainty: The Best Essays Of

Product Description G.K. Chesterton was a master essayist. But reading his essays is not just an exercise in studying a literary form at its finest, it is an encounter with timeless truths that jump off the page as fresh and powerful as the day they were written. The only problem with Chesterton's essays is that there are too many of them. Over five thousand! For most GKC readers it is not even possible to know where to start or how to begin to approach them.So three of the world's leading authorities on Chesterton - Dale Ahlquist, Joseph Pearce, Aidan Mackey - have joined together to select the best Chesterton essays, a collection that will be appreciated by both the newcomer and the seasoned student of this great 20th century man of letters.The variety of topics are astounding: barbarians, architects, mystics, ghosts, fireworks, rain, juries, gargoyles and much more. Plus a look at Shakespeare, Dickens, Jane Austen, George MacDonald, T.S. Eliot, and the Bible. All in that inimitable, formidable but always quotable style of GKC. Even more astounding than the variety is the continuity of Chesterton's thought that ties everything together. A veritable feast for the mind and heart.While some of the essays in this volume may be familiar, many of them are collected here for the first time, making their first appearance in over a century. About the Author Dale Ahlquist is president of the American Chesterton Society. Through his long running television series, The Apostle of Common Sense, as well as his books and lectures, he has helped bring about a great renewal of interest in the works of G. K. Chesterton. He has authored and contributed to several books on Chesterton, including Common Sense 101: Lessons from G. K. Chesterton, G. K. Chesterton: The Apostle of Common Sense, and In Defense of Sanity: The Best Essays of G. K. Chesterton. G. K. Chesterton was one of the most beloved and prolific authors of the twentieth century. He wrote dozens of popular books on a variety of topics and thousands of essays. His books include Orthodoxy, The Everlasting Man, and The Man Who Was Thursday.
