Publisher Description

You may be aware that G. K. Chesterton authored influential Christian biographies and apologetics. But you may not know the larger-than-life Gilbert Keith Chesterton himself—not yet. Equally versed in poetry, novels, literary criticism, and journalism, he addressed politics, culture, and religion with a towering intellect and a soaring wit.

Chesterton engaged his world through the written word. He carried on lively, public discussions with the social commentators of his day, continually challenging them with civility, humility, erudition, and his ever-sharp sense of humor. Today's reader can find the same treasures, for as Chesterton said, "What a man can believe depends upon his philosophy, not upon the clock or the century."

In Kevin Belmonte's fresh new biography, you'll get to know the real G. K. Chesterton and his literary and cultural accomplishments. A giant of his time, Chesterton continues to live large in the imaginations of twenty-first-century readers.

Defiant Review

I have read much, not all, of Chesterton's voluminous work as well as many biographies. GK is one of my favorite subjects because of his joy, laughter, wonder, and gratitude for mearly being alive.
Reading GK is like getting an adjustment at the chiropractor for the soul. If you don't know who he is, well you need to and this audio book is the perfect place to start.
We all drive down roads at high speeds never giving a thought to the men who's blood, sweat, and tears built them.
Chesterton gave us CS Lewis and Mere Christianity and the Chronicles of Narnia.
My friend Kevin Belmonte is just the right man to present GKC to a world that so needs to laugh and be thankful and bask in the defiant joy of being alive.
I am listening to the audio in my car and reading my advanced copy of the book before bed. Believe me, this audio book is worth the price.
I guarantee you will thank me after you have finished.
