G. K. Chesterton was one of the most well-known and beloved writers of his time. Yet he has been strangely neglected today. This book is the perfect introduction to Chesterton. Ahlquist is an able guide who takes the reader through twelve of Chestertonís most important books as well as the famous Father Brown stories.

One of the problems with approaching Chesterton is that he was so prolific that the reader is simply overwhelmed. But Ahlquist makes the literary giant accessible, highlighting Chestertonís amazing reach, keen insight, and marvelous wit. Each chapter is liberally spiced with Chestertonís striking quotations.

There is something special that runs throughout Chestertonís books that sets him apart from the confusing philosophies of the modern world. That common thread in Chestertonís writings is common sense. It is instantly recognizable and utterly refreshing.
