 Our Description

G.K. Chesterton

G.K. Chesterton has been described by both his admirers and even his opponents as the "apostle of common sense"  and "one of the happiest, kindest, most brilliant and witty" defenders of Christianity that ever lived.  From his youthful days as a free-thinking Victorian to his entry into the Catholic Church, G.K. Chesterton aslways seemed to be a man who loved truth, beauty and goodness, and who had a vast appreciation and gratitude for the gift of life itself, with all of its many joys as well as sorrows.  Indeed, for Chesterton, the joys far out-weighed the sorrows.

In this book, Chesterton's brilliance as a writer and thinker again shines through as he explains his understanding of Catholicism and the Catholic Church, and how her appeal to reason and truth eventually won him over.  For Chesterton, a man misses the point of it all unless he acts on two essentials at the heart of conversion.  He describes these in his own words: "One is that he believes it to be solid objective truth, which is true whether he likes it or not; and the other is that he seeks liberation from his sins." These two reasons are why Chesterton became a Catholic, and are what he describes in his unique and colorful way in this book.

By turning things upside down and inside out, G. K. Chesterton encourages readers to reevaluate and analyze preconceived notions. He provokes the reader to think more deeply about the subject at hand. For example, he asks the question: "What is any man who has been in the real outer world, for instance, to make of the everlasting cry that Catholic traditions are condemned by the Bible?"

Although this book is about the Catholic Church and conversion, it is not an apologetics book. While it answers many objections to the Catholic Church, whether from a secular or Protestant point of view, it does not offer a point-by-point refutation of these objections. Chesterton’s broader, yet more intimate, approach provides plenty of remarks that one could logi Full Review...
