Edited by George Marlin
The is the second volume of Chesterton's novels in this series of his Collected Works. (Volume 6 is the other book of novels.) Besides his well-known philosophical-theological writings, Chesterton's fiction is very popular (Father Brown Mysteries, The Man Who Was Thursday, etc.) and among those who regarded him as a great literary figure are T.S. Eliot, Evelyn Waugh, C.S. Lewis and W.H. Auden. The reader will encounter characters in these novels that defend with great vigor the dignity of the person and fundamental Christian beliefs.
"Chesterton leaves a permanent claim upon our loyalty to see that the work that he did in his time is continued in ours."
