G.K. Chesterton believed in the Devil before he believed in God.

In this follow-up to his earlier book The Tumbler of God: Chesterton as Mystic, Fr. Robert Wild explores G.K. Chesterton’s fascinating duel with Satan, both on paper and in his personal life. Poring over Chesterton’s voluminous work, Fr. Wild examines how Chesterton’s insights on evil extend beyond the philosopher’s “problem of evil,” proving Chesterton’s personal belief as well as confrontation with Lucifer and his demons. Jousting with the Devil is as compelling as it is groundbreaking.

[mp_quote cite=”from the introduction by Dale Ahlquist” quote_content=”Satan is real. That’s the first thing. The second thing should then be obvious: Satan is horrible. But the third thing may not be obvious: Satan is also ridiculous. But he is the only ridiculous thing that must be taken seriously.” mp_style_classes=”landing-quote” margin=”none,15,15,15″]

Whether or not you are familiar with Chesterton, you will be surprised at how familiar Chesterton is with this subject. Though he seems to have an intuitive sense of truth whatever his subject matter, when Chesterton writes about the Devil, he knows what he is talking about for more than intuitive reasons because his wisdom is supplemented by personal experience.
