6 Issues of Gilbert! Magazine

An annual membership includes 6 issues of Gilbert! which has been called “the best magazine in the world.” Each issue features original essays by G.K. Chesterton, more relevant (and more accurate) than anything you read in the news; incomparable quotations that please and inspire and sparkle with wit; a regular walking tour through the writings of Chesterton led by Dale Ahlquist; plus news and reviews, poems and prophecies, tools for education, evangelization, and repairing a broken world. You’ll also get exclusive access to 10+ years of digital back issues in a searchable format.

Videos from Dale Ahlquist

From an introduction to the life and writings to G.K. Chesterton, to a fascinating “show and tell” of Dale’s Chesterton collection, you’ll love the videos produced especially for our members.

Virtual Society Meetings

Ever wish you could talk about G.K. Chesterton with Dale Ahlquist, the world’s leading expert on Chesterton? Well, now is your chance! Every three months, members of the Society of G.K. Chesterton join Dale and Brandon Vogt, Content Director for Bishop Barron’s Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, for a virtual society meeting. 

Discount on Books & More!

Membership entitles you to a 20% discount on books and merchandise from our catalogue, featuring classic Chesterton titles, Dale Ahlquist’s introductory books, new titles from ACS books, and more to delight and invite.

Special Conference Pricing

You’ll receive a discount on the annual Chesterton Conference held each year in a different city around the country, a marvelous gathering of dynamite speakers, provocative discussion, and fascinating people who put Catholic joy into practice.

Please note that, due to the non-profit nature of our business, we are unable to issue refunds for cancelled membership purchases. If you would no longer like to receive the magazine, we can apply the pro-rated amount towards a tax-deductible donation. Any remaining issues of the magazine will be given to inmates in our prison ministry.

Sign up for our virtual conference! July 31 & August 1

Free to all members of the Chesterton Society. If you are not a member, make sure to join for access!
