This reissue is a defence of orthodoxy. Chesterton wrote of it; In these pages I have attempted in a vague and personal way, in a set of mental picutres rather than in a series of deductions, to state the philosophy in which I have come to believe. I will not call it my philosophy; for I did not make it. God and humanity made it and it made me.
In the Twentieth Century Christian Classics series, this autobiography of G. K. Chesterton, the century's leading essayist, describes how he developed a personal philosophy that turned out to be traditional Christianity.
Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London, England, in 1874. He went on to study art at the Slade School, and literature at University College in London. Chesterton wrote a great deal of poetry, as well as works of social and literary criticism. Among his most notable books are The Man Who Was Thursday, a metaphysical thriller, and The Everlasting Man, a history of humankind's spiritual progress. After Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922, he wrote mainly on religious topics such as Orthodoxy and Heretics. Chesterton is most known for creating the famous priest-detective character Father Brown, who first appeared in The Innocence of Father Brown. Chesterton died in 1936 at the age of 62.
