Editorial Reviews

Review

"Wood's critical retrieval of Chesterton's work demonstrates very clearly how worthwhile it remains to engage with Chesterton's most essential and provocative ideas."

--Fergus Kerr, Honorary Professor of Modern Catholic Theology at the University of St Andrews

"Who better to make sense of G. K. Chesterton's quarrel with secular humanism? Wood brilliantly helps us navigate the trail Chesterton blazed through our modern Inferno."

--Daniel McInerny, Associate Professor of Philosophy in the Honors College, Baylor University

"Ralph Wood had given us an outstanding contribution to Chesterton scholarship, revealing both the depth of the author's intellect and the breadth of his imagination."

--Dale Ahlquist, President, American Chesterton Society

"The finest study of Chesterton in many years. It is precisely because Wood has not turned a blind eye to Chesterton's faults that he has succeeded so powerfully in demonstrating Chesterton's genius and continued importance for us today."

--David Bentley Hart, author of Atheist Delusions: The Christian Revolution and Its Fashionable Enemies

"Wood has triumphed once again. He shows how great Christian art is often paradoxically dark when conveying the light and he is a superb guide through the gloomy and yet glimmering wonderland of Chesterton's work."

--Joseph Pearce, Associate Professor of Literature, Ave Maria University and author of Wisdom of Innocence: A Life of G. K. Chesterton

Based on a fascinating interview with the author, Ralph Wood, in the September/October 2012 issue of Gilbert Magazine and reading selections on Amazon.com, I bought this book. It is excellent!

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a review of the price not the book. I would love to buy this book but I am not made of money and I question why an electronic book warrents a price comparable to a printed book which may still be on my shelf decades from now.
