By: Kevin Belmonte
Published by Thomas Nelson
The Quotable 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.
I’ve never met a Chesterton quote I didn’t like. That said, I haven’t read that many Chesterton quotes. Until now. This book is full of golden nuggets of wit and wisdom.
Since I’m always looking for quotes to send off in emails or written letters, this book is a treasure to keep close by. It’s well ordered so it’s easy to find a quote that’s suited to your topic/letter, etc., plus all the information that the author fills in with Chesterton history is enjoyable.
I’d definitely recommend this book to others.
