Season 5, The Catholic Home, Episode 17: The Man Who Was Chesterton (Part 2)

gkcWho was the man who wrote the classic apologetic ”Orthodoxy” and the world-renowned Fr. Brown series? This incredibly prolific writer and complete thinker did not leave any subject untouched. Surrounded by the errors of Modernism swarming around him, he used his pen to defend common sense, the common man, and, most importantly, the family. He foresaw how the trends and evils of his day namely, feminism, divorce, materialism, atheism, would eventually destroy the family and society. Not only was he a writer, but also an apologist and essayist, a poet, philosopher, historian, critic and public speaker.

Please join our guest, Margaret, as she shares the genius of Chesterton as a debater, some in-depth excerpts from various essays on the family, more humorous paradoxical quotes, his poetry, and finishing off the show with a reading plan suggestion to help our listeners to explore his works on their own!
