    Done, though with errors

    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.
