Read full description of the books:
According to Chesterton St Francis of Assisi anticipated all that is most sympathetic in the modern mood, he exceeds Wordsworth in his love of nature and Tolstoy in his social compassion. However St Francis' love of people was not based on a worldly obsession but was the expression of his complete love of Christ. It is perhaps his key inspiration and legacy that the material things most valued by humanity diminish to insignificance in the light of this love.

Read information about the authorGilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) was born in London, educated at St. Paul’s, and went to art school at University College London. In 1900, he was asked to contribute a few magazine articles on art criticism, and went on to become one of the most prolific writers of all time. He wrote a hundred books, contributions to 200 more, hundreds of poems, including the epic Ballad of the White Horse, five plays, five novels, and some two hundred short stories, including a popular series featuring the priest-detective, Father Brown. In spite of his literary accomplishments, he considered himself primarily a journalist. He wrote over 4000 newspaper essays, including 30 years worth of weekly columns for the Illustrated London News, and 13 years of weekly columns for the Daily News. He also edited his own newspaper, G.K.’s Weekly.
Chesterton was equally at ease with literary and social criticism, history, politics, economics, philosophy, and theology.
