G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936), was one of the great Catholic writers of the twentieth century. He brought a distinctive Catholic perspective to scores of books and articles--even to the genre of detective novels in the famous Father Brown mysteries. As this collection shows, Chestertons writing contains a spiritual dimension. In his ability to combine matters of great seriousness with great humor the contours of his distinctive and ""paradoxical"" spirituality emerge.
