1 G. K. Chesterton Brave New Family
i p 089870314X / 9780898703146 G. K. Chesterton on Men and Women, Children, Sex,
Edited by Alvaro de Silva A collection of G. K. Chesterton's provocative writings on a subject close to his heart--the family, and the corresponding themes of men and women, children, sex, marriage and divorce. The family was a central element in Chesterton's vision, a unifying theme of his literary work. His eloquent defense of the sacredness of the home is even more applicable in our times because of the tremendous moral problems in our society that threaten the modern family. Chesterton's insights will be a deep inspiration to married couples, those preparing for marriage, priests, teachers, and anyone else interested in marriage and the family. An ideal gift book. "This is one of those absolutely necessary books. No one had such bracing no-nonsense practical wisdom as Chesterton. Now this book brings together the embattled family and GKC, the knight who rides forth to do battle for it. It should serve as a manual for us to turn the tide and restore ancient sanities." — Peter Kreeft, Author, Three Philosophies of Life "There is something providential in the way G. K. Chesterton has returned to speak to us of great realities that matter. With prophetic insight he meets the threats to the family, which have increased so much since his era. This book is essential reading, not only for all who work to build up family life but for those who want to rediscover the treasure hidden in that small word which Chesterton loved--"home". — Cardinal Edouard Gagnon, Pontifical Council for the Family "The consecrated pen of Chesterton exposed the attack on the family by a tangle of theorists years before our present social calamity. He shatters their fatal nonsense with the splendor of Christian personalism." — Fr. George Rutler, Author, Beyond Modernity

2 G. K. Chesterton Heretics

Heretics. One of Chesterton's earliest books, Heretics is also one of his best. Overflowing with characteristic wit, incisiveness, and splendid gusto, here is Chesterton's razor-sharp analysis of the fallacies of modern thought as exemplified in the leading writers of the time. Nietzsche, Shaw, Yeats, Kipling, Ibsen, H.G. Wells, and others are all submitted to a ruthless Chestertonian examination. However, true to his character, Chesterton gives each man his due by allowing the reader to celebrate the real value of his work. 208 pp.

3 G. K. Chesterton Orthodoxy
ip 0898705525 / 9780898705522 
Gilbert Keith Chesterton is one of the most celebrated and reverently esteemed figures in modern literature. He was a phenomenally prolific writer. After achieving early success as an illustrator, he subsequently established his fame as a playwright, novelist, poet, literary commentator, pamphleteer, essayist, lecturer, apologist, and editor. The depth and range of his work are astounding. A pagan at only 12 and totally agnostic by 16, Chesterton had the remarkable experience of developing a personal, positive philosophy that turned out to be orthodox Christianity. Orthodoxy, his account of it all, has not lost its force as a timeless argument for the simple plausibility of traditional Christianity. C.S. Lewis and many other emerging Christian thinkers have found this book a pivotal step in their adoption of a credible Christian faith. This intellectual and spiritual autobiography of the leading 20th century essayist combines simplicity with subtlety in a model apologetic that appeals to today's generations of readers who face the same materialism and antisupernaturalism as did the "man at war with his times." Of the numerous works that Chesterton wrote, the most scintillating synthesis of his philosophy and deeply religious faith was manifested in his masterpiece, Orthodoxy, written when he was only thirty-four and which tells, in his inimitable, soaring prose, of his earth-shaking discovery that orthodoxy is the only satisfactory answer to the perplexing riddle of the universe. Orthodoxy is perhaps the most outstanding example of the originality of his style and the brilliance of his thought. "There has never been a more articulate champion of classic Christian orthodoxy, virtue, and decency than this rotund jouster whose words were his weapons." -Christianity Today Length: 168 pages Edition: Paperback

4 G. K. Chesterton Orthodoxy

Orthodoxy. Arguably one of the most brilliant apologetic books in the English language! Chesterton wrote Orthodoxy in 1908 as a response to a challenge from one of his readers to state his creed. Rarely has any challenge been more gloriously and chivalrously met. This is early Chesterton at his best: sparkling paradoxes, breathtaking wordplay, trenchant argument and blinding logic. His work is witty and insightful, illustrating the reasonableness of orthodoxy despite the attacks of its critics. The book also provides a spiritual autobiography, as Chesterton employs his own discovery of orthodox Christianity in order to defend its beauty and its sanity against modern secular schools of philosophy. Chesterton manages to challenge his reader intellectually, while still appealing to a child-like sense of awe at the world around us. 398 pp

5 G. K. Chesterton St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Francis of Assisi
ip 0898709458 / 9780898709452 
Introductions by Ralph McInerny and Joseph Pearce Here, together in a single volume, are the two biographies that many critics consider both Chesterton's best, and the best short portraits ever written of these two great saints. St. Francis of Assisi is a profoundly Catholic work, explaining and illuminating the life of St. Francis in a way no other biography has. The spiritual kinship the author felt with his subject enables the reader to delve into insights on the character of Francis that have eluded many. St. Thomas Aquinas is enriched by the author’s unique ability to see the world through the saint’s eyes, a fresh and animated view that shows us Aquinas as no other biography has. Acclaimed as the best book ever written on Aquinas by such outstanding Thomists as Jacques Maritain, Etienne Gilson, and Anton Pegis, this brilliant biography will completely capture the reader and leave him desirous of reading Aquinas’ own monumental work. “No two lives are more interesting or diverse than St. Francis of Assisi and St. Thomas Aquinas. The St. Francis book is today especially significant because it addresses itself on how to reform a corrupt culture, while the St. Thomas book is important because it addresses the problem of disordered minds. Chesterton makes philosophy intelligible and poverty rich. No two books get at the heart of things better or in a more delightful manner.” —James V. Schall, S.J., Georgetown University Length: 320 pages Edition: Paperback

6 G. K. Chesterton The Autobiography of G.K. Chesterton
ip 1586170716 / 9781586170714 
Here is a special two-in-one book that is both by G.K. Chesterton and about Chesterton. This volume offers an irresistible opportunity to see who this remarkable man really was. Chesterton was one of the most stimulating and well-loved writers of the 20th century. His 100 books, and hundreds of essays and columns on a great variety of themes have made G.K. Chesterton the most widely quoted writers of modern times. Here is Chesterton in his own words, in a book he preferred not to write, but did so near the end of his life after much insistence by friends and admirers. Critic Sydney Dark wrote after Chesterton died that “perhaps the happiest thing that happened in Gilbert Chesterton's extraordinarily happy life was that his autobiography was finished a few weeks before his death. It is a stimulating, exciting, tremendously interesting book. It is a draught—indeed, several draughts one after the other—of human and literary champagne." Gilbert Keith Chesterton is one of the most prolific authors of modern times, having written some 100 books on many topics including philosophy, theology, poetry, literature, fiction and history. His best-selling works include Orthodoxy, The Everlasting Man, St. Thomas & St. Francis, The Man Who Was Thursday and Father Brown Stories. Wonderful for gift-giving or personal use.

7 G. K. Chesterton The Ballad of the White Horse
ip 0898708907 / 9780898708905 
The Ballad of the White Horse is one of the last great epic poems in the English language. On the one had it describes King Alfred’s battle against the Danes in 878. On the other hand it is a timeless allegory about the ongoing battle between Christianity and the forces of nihilistic heathenism. Filled with colorful characters, thrilling battles and mystical visions, it is as lively as it is profound. Chesterton incorporates brilliant imagination, atmosphere, moral concern, chronological continuity, wisdom and fancy. He makes his stanzas reverberate with sound, and hurries his readers into the heart of the battle. This deluxe volume is the definitive edition of the poem. It exactly reproduces the 1928 edition with Robert Austin’s beautiful woodcuts, and includes a thorough introduction and wonderful endnotes by Sister Bernadette Sheridan, from her 60 years researching the poem. Illustrated. “When Chesterton writes poetry, he excels like no other modern writer. The rhyme, rhythm, alliteration and imagery are a complete joy to the ear. But The Ballad of the White Horse is not just a poem. It is a prophecy.” —Dale Ahlquist, President, The American Chesterton Society “Not only a charming poem and a great tale, this is a keystone work of Christian literature that will be read long after most of the books of our era are forgotten.” —Michael O’Brien, Author, Father Elijah Length: 280 pages Edition: Hardcover

9 G. K. Chesterton The Catholic Church and Conversion
ip 1586170732 / 9781586170738 
In this book, Chesterton's brilliance as a writer and thinker again shine through as he explains his understanding of Catholicism and the Catholic Church and how its appeal to reason and truth eventually won him over. For Chesterton, two essentials lay at the heart of conversion, and without these, a man misses the point of it all. He describes these in his own words: “One is that he believes it to be solid objective truth, which is true whether he likes it or not; and the other is that he seeks liberation from his sins." That is why Chesterton became a Catholic, and what he describes in his unique and colorful way in this book.Length: 140 pages Edition: Paperback

11 G. K. Chesterton The Collected Works of G. K. Chesterton, Vol. 10
ip 0898703913 / 9780898703917 
Edited by Aidan Mackey The first of two volumes of Chesterton's poetry, many of which have never been published before. Mackey, a Chesterton expert, has been collecting GKC's poems over a period of years and he has arranged them by subject. There are also alphabetical indexes by title and by the first line to aid the reader. Chesterton was the poet of the ordinary, denying that anything was or could be uninteresting; his verse celebrates lamp-posts and daisies and railway stations. Above all he gave unceasing thanks for "The Great Minimum", that gift of mere existence, to which any added joy is almost superfluous. As in his other writings, Chesterton's poems carried his rollicking yet devastating barbs launched at the cant and humbug of the planners, politicians and self-appointed reformers of his day.

Volume 11: Collected Plays and Chesterton on Shaw This volume includes the collected plays of G. K. Chesterton, his controversial writings on Bernard Shaw (who referred to GKC as a colossal genius), and a bibliography. Many of the items appear for the first time in book form. Among his plays included here are: "The Wild Knight", "Magic", "The Judgment of Dr. Johnson", "The Turkey and the Turk", and "The Surprise". Among his writings on Shaw included here are: "Do We Agree?" (a debate), "How I Found the Superman", "Sorry, I'm Shaw", and "A Salute to the Last Socialist". Chesterton himself gives the best summary of what we found in this volume when he says of Shaw: "I have argued with him on almost every subject in the world; and we have always been on opposite sides without affectation or animosity. I have defended the institution of the family against his Platonic fancies about the state ... institutions of beef and beer against his hygienic severity of vegetarianism and total abstinence.... It is necessary to disagree with him as much as I do in order to admire him as I do; and I am proud of him as a foe even more than as a friend." Sewn Hardcover Length: 650 pages Edition: Hardcover

ip 0898703735 / 9780898703733 Robert Louis Stevenson, Chaucer, Leo Tolstoy, Thom
In this volume's studies in literary criticism and biography, Chesterton exhibits his congenital perception of character and motive which makes all of his biographies shine. Chesterton's warm affection for Stevenson and Chaucer is vastly evident in his volumes on them. He was heavily influenced by Stevenson's romances that were full of manliness, courage and hope. Polemical literary criticism flourishes at its most vigorous in Chesterton's Chaucer, a tribute to medieval England and Chaucer's literature. His monographs on Tolstoy and Carlyle reveal keen insights into two very different writers, thus providing four unique studies that teach us much concerning the distinctions in literature and in life between normality and abnormality.

All of these books date from about 1920, except Christendom in Ireland, which concerns the 1932 Dublin Eucharistic Congress, which Chesterton attended.

ip 0898702720 / 9780898702729 What I Saw in America, The Resurrection of Rome, S
This volume contains Chesterton's commentaries and reflections on what he saw on his travels in America and Rome, plus an appendix on how America saw Chesterton. On January 10, 1921, Gilbert and Frances Chesterton began a three month tour of the United States. During their first stop in the City of New York, Chesterton examined the lights of Broadway and proclaimed: "What a glorious garden of wonders this would be to anyone who was lucky enough to be unable to read." In his writing on America, Chesterton shows a remarkable ability for sympathetic appreciation of the principle traits of America. He would acquire an uncanny clear-sightedness about many things in America that it would not be an exaggeration to call clairvoyant. One greatness recognized another greatness, and one can say that Chesterton truly knew something profound about America. Throughout the 1920's and 1930's, Chesterton's travels included Jerusalem, Ireland, North America and Rome. This volume contains his reflections on his 1921 and 1930-31 tour of North America and his 1929 trip to Rome. Readers will enjoy the great man's impressions of city skyscrapers, rural America, the politics of Washington, as well as his views of Pope Pius XI, the Eternal City, Mussolini and Fascism. The introduction to this volume was written by Dr. Robert Royal, Vice President of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, Washington, D.C. The appendix was compiled by the late Chairman of the Northeastern Chapter of the G.K. Chesterton Society, Mr. Robert Knille. The appendix gives the newspaper accounts of Chesterton's 1921 trip to America. It contains generous excerpts of the speeches, interviews and comments G.K.C. made during his tour. Most of the material provided has never appeared in book form. "Anyone who knows the Eternal City well will recognize in Chesterton's vision a truth about Rome that has never been captured with such force before or since." -- Robert Royal Length: 700 pages Edition: Paperback
