Editorial Reviews

Review

"A pleasing packaging of the ever-reliable, ever-relevant, ever-resourceful, and everlasting G. K. Chesterton. I'm ready for a couple hundred more of these!" --Dale Ahlquist, President of the American Chesterton Society

"Someone said that G. K. Chesterton's sayings are like potato chips: it's impossible to eat just one. They are gloriously addictive. GKC is a gold mine, and here are some gold potato chips." --From the foreword by Peter Kreeft, Catholic author and philosophy professor at Boston College

"This carefully edited volume is just the thing to introduce the wit, verbal dexterity, and deep Christian insight of G. K. Chesterton. Readers who do not know Chesterton will find a compelling introduction; veterans will once again experience Chesterton's ability to render the familiar exceptional, explain the inexplicable, and illuminate the otherwise obscure. It presents a feast equally to soul, mind, and spirit." --Mark Noll, Retired Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame

"Just as an alphabet creates ways of communication, these alphabetically arranged excerpts of G. K. Chesterton open up mysteries of life, love, and belief so as to critique, refresh, and challenge any reader." --Rev. Kevin G. Grove, C.S.C., Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Notre Dame

About the Author

G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was a prolific writer, poet, and satirist; a powerful journalist; and one of the most respected Catholic authors of the twentieth century. He converted to Catholicism in 1922 at the age of forty eight.

Chesterton’s book Orthodoxy is one of the classics of Christian apologetics. His novel The Man Who Was Thursday probably influenced Franz Kafka, and his clerical detective Father Brown was featured in dozens of stories and is second only to Sherlock Holmes as the most loved amateur fictional sleuth in history. Chesterton lived in London.

Peter Kreeft is an internationally respected Chesterton expert, and has been a professor of philosophy at Boston College since 1965.
