The Quotable G. K. Chesterton is a comprehensive, accessible survey of Chesterton's greatest ideas and writings.

^^
With more than 850 passages showcasing his brilliance and masterful writing style, it covers topics from Academia to Painting, Politics to Architecture, Jane Austen to John Bunyan, Jesus to Fairy Tales.

^^
Fans and first-time readers??of Chesterton will discover topics that dominated thought and life throughout the 20th century and have influenced our own time . . . all from the view of a man the New York Times hailed as a "brilliant English essayist" and who George Bernard Shaw called a "colossal genius."

^^
Chesterton created a bulwark in his own day to defend Christian faith and assert a Christian view throughout culture. As readers encounter the breadth of his genius, they will find compelling reasons to emulate his unceasing fight for truth and beauty.




G. K. Chesterton was a literary giant of his age. With an^exceptional intellect, he wrote about history, politics, economics, philosophy,^social and literary criticism, and theology. He published essays, novels, biographies,^short stories, and poetry, and the Christian classics Heretics, Orthodoxy, and The Everlasting Man, which C. S. Lewis^credits as instrumental in his conversion to Christianity.

^^
With much of his finest material out of print or hard to find,^modern readers have long needed a standard collection of his best thoughts. Kevin^Belmonte's The Quotable Chesterton brings^them to you arranged alphabetically by topic, with complete original source^documentation.

^^
There are entries from Adventure to Cheese, Politics to^Emile Zola, interspersed with essays about Chesterton's life and times.^Hundreds of passages drawn from Chesterton's fiction, poetry, essays, and other^books showcase a man the New York Times^hailed as a "brilliant English essayist" and George Bernard Shaw called a^"colossal genius."

"There isn't a writer who gets me pacing and smiling and^thinking like G.K. Chesterton. His every paradigm shift is an adjustment to my mental^compass, and so a gift." -DONALD MILLER, author of the New York Times bestsellers A^Million Miles in a Thousand Years and Blue^Like Jazz

^^
"Over the years, I have delivered thousands of lectures,^speeches, talks, and sermons; I have written hundreds of articles, essays,^books, and reviews; it is an exceedingly rare occasion when any of them should^fail to contain the words 'Chesterton once said.' Kevin Belmonte here reveals^that fountain of wit, wisdom, and wonder, G.K. Chesterton, in all his^irresistibly, irrepressibly, quotable splendor."-GEORGE GRANT, Pastor, Parish^Presbyterian Church, and Chancellor, New College Franklin
