Historical Apologist: G.K. Chesterton

G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was a prolific, imaginative writer in many fields, today best known as a Christian apologist and for his Father Brown detective stories.

Some of Chesterton’s most-read works include Orthodoxy, Heretics, The Everlasting Man, and The Man Who Was Thursday. He was a major influence on C. S. Lewis.1
