Dale Ahlquist, the President of the American Chesterton Society, and author of G.K. Chesterton: The Apostle of Common Sense, presents a book of wonderful insights on how to “look at the whole world through the eyes of Chesterton”. Since, as he says, “Chesterton wrote about everything”, there is an ocean of his material to benefit from GKC’s insights on a kaleidoscope of many important topics.
Chesterton wrote a hundred books on a variety of themes; thousands of essays for London newspapers, penned epic poetry, delighted in detective fiction, drew illustrations, and made everyone laugh by his keen humor. Everyone who knew Chesterton loved him, even those he debated with. His unique writing style that combines philosophy, spirituality, history, humor, and paradox have made him one of the most widely read authors of modern times.
In Common Sense 101: Lessons from G.K. Chesterton, we learn just how much this most quoted writer of the 20th century has to share with us on topics covering politics, art, education, wonder, marriage, fads, poetry, faith, charity and much more.
