Generally excellent book of essays by G.K. Chesterton, first published about1909. Known as the "Prince of Paradox", Chesterton defended orthodox Chistianity by turning conventional wisdom inside out. One warning though: Chesterton was conventional in at least one unfortunate way. In two essays, "The Dickensian", and "The Tower", he uses a racial term unacceptable today but apparently useable in the England of his day. Otherwise a great collection.
