- We can order this
This book focuses on G. K. Chesterton's apology for Catholicism in the context of his epoch. It shows how he portrays Catholicism as English and universal at the same time and thus seeks to put an end to its isolation from England's mainstream culture. Organized around four thematic issues (transcendence, mystical materialism, valuation of the childlike, and universality), the book illustrates Chesterton's case for Catholicism as a case for romance and adventure, and as a challenge to modern modes of thought inimical to Catholic Christianity.
