G.K. Chesterton

G. K. Chesterton (1874–1936) was one of C. S. Lewis’ primary mentors in apologetics. Best-known for his Father Brown detective stories, Chesterton's prolific output included philosophy, poetry, plays, journalism, literary and art criticism, biography, Christian apologetics, and fiction -- including fantasy and detective fiction. Chesteron used humor and reason to defend faith.

G. K. Chesterton is already a staple in the Hendrickson list with Orthodoxy and Heretics in the Hendrickson Christian Classics series. Known primarily for his non-fiction, he also wrote fiction, and The Napoleon of Notting Hill and The Man Who was Thursday are among his best known and most loved novels.

The Napoleon of Notting Hill, his first novel, tells the story of residents of a London suburb who take up arms and declare their independence from England. Line drawings are included throughout.

The Man Who was Thursday, his most famous novel, tells the story of a policeman who becomes unwittingly—and unwillingly—caught up in a resistance group that is infiltrating a secret organization of anarchists.
