"In reading Chesterton..., I did not know what I was letting myself in for. A young man who wishes to remain a sound atheist cannot be too careful of his reading. There are traps everywhere - 'Bibles laid open, millions of surprises,' as Herbert says, 'fine nets and stratagems.' God is, if I may say it, very unscrupulous." - C. S. Lewis

A delightful series of 35 essays by the great Christian apologist, G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936). His wit, wisdom and deeply felt humanism are clearly on display in this fine series of every-day reflections that give real meaning to what it means to think as an Englishman. His humor is never bombastic or obvious. It is the tone and tenor of his writings that constantly surprise and illuminate. It is a way of thinking that few possess with such grace and wonder. As C. S. Lewis would later say, "His humour was of the kind I like best..., humour which is not in any way separable from the argument but is rather (as Aristotle would say) the "bloom" on dialectic itself."
