There would be so much to write about Chesterton. I know that George Orwell did not like GKC. But he Chesterton is one writer who changed many things for me. Orthodoxy did to me what C.S. Lewis' essays did: pushed me off my ignorant arrogance about many things religious.

  3. THis is my 2nd time round with this one It is a great re read Chesterton was brilliant, and witty, too A favourite quote What we call the intellectual world is divided into two types of people those who worship the intellect and those who use it There are exceptions but, broadly speaking, they are never the same people Those who use the intellect never worship it they know too much about it Those who worship the intellect never use it as you can see by the things they say about it.


  4. I bought this collected works book specifically to get Chesterton s apologetic re his Catholic conversion I was not disappointed He deals with clarity with the common misconceptions of his day re Catholicism and these apply to criticisms that are common today As a Protestant, I really appreciated his clear dealing with the historical truths of the ancient Christian Church, which was Catholic.
