Publisher's Description

How do we defend the faith in today’s world? Where are the connecting points with an audience that does not like or does not even care about religion? What will prevent us from being merely reactionary? Surprisingly, the best strategy may come from a writer who anticipated our present problem a hundred years ago: G.K. Chesterton.

In this scholarly, yet scrappy approach, English Priest and Former Boxer Paul Rowan masterfully makes the case of how Chesterton can be used to develop a new apologetics to engage the post-modern age.

Editorial Reviews

"As an apologist Chesterton was nothing if not counter-cultural, yet what emerges wonderfully from these pages is his great human warmth and Catholic generosity of spirit. G.K. is not merely a captivating figure from the past, he is also—as again and again we are reminded in this thoughtful and compelling study—a necessary contemporary at a time of great confusion, a thinker, a celebrant of the faith, a radiant apostle still one step ahead of us." 
—Father Paul Murray, OP Consultor to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, Vatican

"Recent popes have summoned Christians to an evangelization "new in its ardor, new in its methods and new in its expression" (Pope St. John Paul II). This is exactly where the inspiring figure and personality of G. K. Chesterton, together with his writings and bon mots, can assist Christians both in their own growth and in their witness to others."
—Philip Egan, Bishop of Portsmouth, England

"Father Rowan...puts Peter in dialogue with Pan."
—Charles J. Scicluna, Archbishop of Malta

"Chesterton fights in the heavy-weight division, and rains devastating blows of logic and common sense. Father Rowan gives us a ringside seat."
—Dale Ahlquist, President of the American Chesterton Society
