"Chesterton's unwavering gratitude and love for the world in which we dwell and for the Faith which we profess comes alive in Fagerberg's closely observed and beautifully written study." -Lawrence S. Cunningham, University of Notre Dame
"At a time when many Catholic institutions are rather desperately trying to retrieve the distinctive identity which they seem to have lost since the Second Vatican Council, David Fagerberg's intriguing analysis of Chesterton's theology provides a model apologetic which is robust, humorous, humble and amazingly universal." -R. Kevin Seasoltz, O.S.B., Editor, Worship magazine
English writer Gilbert Keith Chesterton was widely known not only for his newspaper columns, novels, poetry, and plays, but also for his theological and Catholic apologetical works. Fagerberg (religion, Concordia College) draws on Chesterton's theological writings to show how he championed Catholicism, and suggests that the ultimate apology he made for Catholicism is that it is capacious enough to accommodate the paradoxical combinations which reveal reality.
