The Christian Ideal - Gilbert K. Chesterton

The Christian Ideal - Gilbert K. Chesterton

G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was an English writer, lay theologian, poet, philosopher, dramatist, journalist, orator, and Christian apologist.


"Though he considered himself a mere "rollicking journalist," he was actually a prolific and gifted writer in virtually every area of literature. A man of strong opinions and enormously talented at defending them, his exuberant personality nevertheless allowed him to maintain warm friendships with people--such as George Bernard Shaw and H. G. Wells--with whom he vehemently disagreed.


Chesterton had no difficulty standing up for what he believed ... In Christianity he found the answers to the dilemmas and paradoxes he saw in life."
