An accessible path to everyday commonsense holiness
Writer G.K. Chesterton celebrated life's most ordinary moments, showing his readers how those moments lead to God-and, in that process, become extraordinary. A convert to Catholicism, Chesterton wrote in nearly every literary genre; and in every one the simplicity of his defense of the faith, the family, the poor, and the common good shines through.
Dale Ahlquist, president of the American Chesterton Society, has gathered together some of Chesterton's most timeless wisdom, sharing excerpts from essays, books, articles, and more that guide believers down a clear and accessible path to everyday commonsense holiness. Persuasive, witty, thoughtful, and filled with wisdom, Chesterton's sayings show why he has influenced generations of poets, theologians, and critics, and why his words continue to draw readers into a very special way of wonder today.
