G.K. Chesterton was an English journalist, art critic, poet, dramatist, apologist for the Christian faith, and (some may say) the greatest thinker and writer of the 20th century. He had something to say about everything, and was generally right about it. That is not to say he was arrogant. Rather he was a man of supreme humility and joy. He often defended truth and openly debated his contemporaries, he never did so from anger, but always from a point of wonder and graciousness.
