He was also a wordsmith of the highest order, capable of making words dance with delight upon the page. The Wisdom of Mr. Chesterton is a unique collection of the pithiest and most profound sentences ever to spring from his pen. Editor and renowned apologist Dave Armstrong has scoured Chesterton's voluminous writings even the most obscure gathered together his choicest quotes, and meticulously organized them by topic. Sure to delight readers with its wit and charm.

The small Catholic priest at his best again! "The Wisdom of Father Brown" is full of tales of crime and discovery, clues and false leads and all the rest of the thrilling material which will make any normal human being sit up and keep on sitting up long past the proper hour for bed. The stories deal with the different strata of society, from the ventriloquist (in a London lodging house, who was found tied and apparently gagged, but instead of being the victim of a supposed murderer, was simply interrupted in his secret practice of new tricks) to the mysterious death of a celebrated actress almost in the presence of her five suitors, and the death of a German prince in his forest. Each story is utterly different from the others and each is told with the author's gift to create atmosphere and to keep the reader intensely entertained.

Novelist, essayist, poet, playwright, historian, journalist, Christian apologist, literary and social critic, G.K. Chesterton was one of the most protean and prolific writers of his age, perhaps of any age. Bernard Shaw called him a 'colossal genius'. Most readers have certainly found him too big to see whole, and have therefore cut him in half. The 'poet' is severed from the philosopher; he is treated either as a phrase-maker or as a mystic; his quirky writings are enjoyed as an aesthetic end in themselves, or they are praised for their contribution to theology. In this close reading of his work, Michael D. Hurley brings Chesterton's divided selves together. Covering the full range of his diverse genres, Hurley shows how Chesterton thinks through language, in ways that confound attempts to read him as a thinker without first appreciating him as a writer.

Pull a comfy chair up to a warm hearth and enjoy 365 daily offerings of wit and wisdom from G. K. Chesterton. A Year with G.K. Chesterton gives one the feeling of being welcomed to an inn where a fire blazes in the hearth and a hearty meal awaits. Chesterton bids readers enter. Scarcely anything worthy of comment seems to have escaped Chesterton's notice, and his reflections on all manner of subjects-faith, literature, the visual arts, or philosophy-are as trenchant and moving as they are wise. People walked to places in Chesterton's day and took their time over things in ways that reveal what we have lost in our constant rush to get to who-knows-where with ever-increasing speed. Chesterton reminds us that it is well worth consulting a map of the cosmos before a swift departure from the station. Those who read one passage a day from the collection that follows will be glad of the chance to keep company with so thoughtful a friend as Chesterton. The recurring themes of his writing are so many boon companions-travelers well met as we journey to the far country-the place where things we now see in twilight will become reality in the swift sunrise of God's making.

G. K. Chesterton was a consummately witty man. In this new collection, Bevis Hillier draws on his most humorous epigrams and more serious extracts not only from his most popular works, the Father Brown stories, but also his contributions to the Illustrated London News and GK's Weekly, as well as his numerous novels, poems, essays and tracts on a vast array of subjects. These pieces shine a light into the margins of Chesterton's work and give a sense of the distinctive flavour of his mind. Hillier, the acclaimed biographer of John Betjeman, considers what it was that made Chesterton such a complex and fascinating character. Some of Chesterton's remarkable drawings (he trained as an artist at the Slade) are included, among them a hitherto unpublished caricature of Winston Churchill, c. 1919. This is a book for Chesterton fans everywhere.

An engaging work sure to appeal to both scholars and students for the depth of its thought and the freshness of its claims, this is a two-part book by one of the 20th century's greatest writers. The first part is a coherent analysis of the theory, effects, and claims of capitalism. The second is a lengthy collection of articles from Chesterton's vast journalistic output. The author challenges the fundamental tenets of capitalism without favoring socialism or Marxism by providing a philosophical analysis of the pitfalls, drawbacks, and falsehoods regarding capitalism and its inevitability. This is must reading for any serious investigation into anti-capitalist thought. It is also an exemplary text of how Christian principles and thinking apply to the socioeconomic world.

In this volume Mr. Chesterton has tackled with his customary gaiety of heart and uncanny shrewdness of eye and hand no less a trinity than socialism, woman's suffrage, and the new education. He begins by proclaiming that what is wrong with the world is chiefly that we have got out of the habit or asking what is right before we begin the diagnosis of the evil and the eager advocacy of a remedy. His method is his favorite one of accepting the stock retorts of his adversaries at their face value, and proceeding to discover in these the ultimate confirmation of his own views and the utter confounding of theirs. All over, this book is full of brilliant, paradoxical and entertaining essays.
