 Our Description

G.K. Chesterton
Introduction by Dr. Denis Conlon, University of Antwerp

T.S. Eliot, Evelyn Waugh, C.S. Lewis and W.H. Auden all recognized Chesterton as a giant literary figure. This volume contains G.K. Chesterton's earliest and greatest novels. The reader will encounter characters that defend with great vigor the dignity of the person and fundamental Christian beliefs. This volume is graced with Chesterton's own drawings and photos, as well as maps. His other novels are in volume 8 of this series.
