Twelve Types is twelve mini-biographies by Chesterton on such figures as St. Francis, Alexander Pope, Savonarola, Sir Walter Scott, Leo Tolstoy, and more. One of Chesterton’s earliest books back in print for the first time in decades.
“While many intellectuals of his day were espousing utopian nonsense, Chesterton accurately foresaw the Modern Age’s dark side, and denounced it loudly and proudly — but with characteristic charity and grace. Consequently, Chesterton’s writings will be read as long as men and women are interested in hearing the unvarnished truth. That it is as attractively packaged and intelligently presented as this new edition of Twelve Types is simply a bonus.” – James Bemis, The Wanderer
