Description

G.K. Chesterton is perhaps best-known today for his Father Brown detective stories, but in his lifetime he was a prolific man of letters whose output included biography, history, poetry, articles and novels. He was also a compelling speaker, renowned for his boisterous sense of the joy of living and his legendary girth. Much of his best work was produced under the pressure of intellectually cut-throat - but typically good natured and humourous - public controversy with leading atheists such as George Bernard Shaw and H.G. Wells. A generation later, his book The Everlasting Man was to be a key factor in C.S. Lewis' conversion to Christianity. This thoughtful little anthology provides the perfect taster for anyone seeking inspiration from this deeply spiritual literary writer.show more
