RENEWING THE WORLD THROUGH CHRISTIAN JOY AND COMMON SENSE
Who is G.K. Chesterton?
Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) is a writer like none other. As a journalist, he wrote thousands of essays for the London newspapers. But he also wrote a hundred books: novels, poetry, plays, literary criticism, history, economic theory, philosophy, and theology. And detective stories. He wrote on every conceivable subject, but his vast output is matched only by the consistency and clarity of his thought, his uncanny ability to tie everything together. The Society of Gilbert Keith Chesterton aims to promote Catholic education, evangelization, and the social teaching of the Church with the help and guidance of the great English writer.
