The English author G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was one of the most well-known and beloved writers of his time. Yet he has been strangely neglected today and is all but unknown by today's readers. Dale Ahlquist's television series, The Apostle of Common Sense, introduced Chesterton to a new generation, and reintroduced him to a new generation that had forgotten him. This new book now compliments this highly acclaimed series, and it is a perfect initiation to Chesterton. As President of the American Chesterton Society, Ahlquist is an able guide who takes the reader through twelve of Chesterton's most important books as well as the famous Father Brown stories.

Sometimes a friend introduces you to someone who will change your life. Dale Ahlquist is that friend. He gently introduces you to Gilbert Keith Chesterton, one of the most explosive intellects this century has produced. But at the same time, this explosive intellect is also one of the most calming common sensical individuals you will ever meet. He is one that thinks clearly when the rest of us are thinking vaguely, that sees us living in an upside down world when everyone else is seeing it right side up. He is one to give you such true paradoxes that you will be stretched and startled into truth. He is the Apostle of Common Sense in a world that has largely been educated into imbecility, in a world that has lost all contact with the reasonableness of religion. --william
