Who was Gilbert Keith Chesterton? A rotund man in a cape brandishing a walking stick? Certainly. A twentieth century writer? Prolifically. A great champion and defender of the Christian Faith? Gallantly. He is known too as the “prince of paradox” and an “apostle of common sense.” Who was this engaging, witty, prophetic man? Allow Dale Ahlquist, the president of the American Chesterton Society, to introduce you to him. In a rollicking adventure quite Chesteronian in flavor, Ahlquist captains an expedition of discovery into who this GKC fellow is. He deftly and cleverly explores Chesterton as a man, as a writer, and as a potential saint. All will will be engaged by amusing anecdotes, plentiful quotations, and a thoughtful study of the life of G. K. Chesterton. Paper.
