This book was made for the person who has always loved Chesterton quotes, but has never been able to finish—or perhaps even start—a Chesterton book. This is because there really is no really good “first” Chesterton book. They are all hard the first time around. Chesterton was an essayist and it is through his essays he is best discovered. Ethan Nicolle has put together this assortment of essays, a list he often gives to people who ask him where to start with Chesterton. Included are footnotes and chapter introductions to help with context.
