 Our Description

More of the unpublished gems of Chesterton's column from the Illustrated London News. Many Chesterton buffs feel these include some of Chesterton's finest writings. Though written for his very popular newspaper column over 70 years ago, Chesterton's timeless wisdom is just as relevant today as it was then. Some of the topics of the 130 columns in this volume include "The Duties of a Citizen", "Being Too Serious About Animals", "Feminist Ideas About Women", "The Idols of Agnostics", "Pride The Supreme Evil", "The Dead Words of Pacifists", "False Mirror of Success", "Two Creeds in Collision", "My Country, Right or Wrong?", and "A Peace Worthy of War".

Volumes 27 through 37 are collected columns from The Illustrated London News. Most of the weekly articles Chesterton wrote for The Illustrated London News have never been printed in book form until Ignatius Press undertook to do the collected works. These volumes contain all of Chesterton's columns in The Illustrated London News, beginning in 1905. The great majority have never appeared in book form. Chesterton lovers will be delighted to find this treasure filled with jewels quite the match of his best writing.
