Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his scintillating prose, one of the 20th century's great writers explains the values and ideas that constitute the foundation of Christianity. G. K. Chesterton adopts an informal style in his scholarly arguments in favor of faith as an affirmation of human freedom. He elaborates on his assertions through analogy, imagery, and personal anecdotes, with ample doses of his characteristic humor. Although written and published nearly a century ago, Chesterton's reasoning and observations appear as fresh and inspired today as they must have seemed to his contemporaries.

Book News Annotation:

Chesterton (The Man Who Knew Too Much) capped his brilliant literary career with this exploration of "right thinking," and how it led to his acceptance of the Christian faith. Although this is a very personal account of his conversion, Chesterton makes it clear he came to a rational decision based upon his scholarly examination of Christianity's arguments, intending to provide a "positive" companion to the previous Heretics. This is a reprint of the edition published by Dodd, Mead & Company, and cited in Books for College Libraries, 3d ed.
