G. K. Chesterton propounded the Christian faith with great wit-and sheer intellectual force.
Christianity Today columnist Philip Yancey finds in G. K. Chesterton a model for joyful Christianity. A man of ample girth and ample mirth as Yancey calls him, the prolific Victorian-era writer helped Yancey recover from the pain and alienation of his adolescence and early adulthood in a troubled, overly strict Christian church, and discover joy. In this study, we will examine several issues raised by Yancey in his search for a grace-filled kind of Christian faith.
