Today’s topics: The Influence of G.K. Chesterton
Summary of today’s show: One of the most prolific and influential Christian writers and thinkers in the first half of the 20th century, G.K. Chesterton, became virtually unknown in the second half, but has seen a surging revival of interest in his work. Dale Ahlquist, president of the American Chesterton Society, joins Scot Landry and Dom Bettinelli to reveal who Chesterton was; his impact upon fields as diverse as philosophy, theology, journalism, politics, economics, and literature; and how he came to be a Catholic convert from Anglicanism near the end of his life. Dale also discusses the Chesterton Academy, a Catholic high school in Minneapolis built around the integration that Chesterton showed in his writing to help students become complete thinkers, as well as the American Chesterton Society’s annual conference that is coming to Worcester the first weekend in August with a stellar list of speakers, including Dr. Peter Kreeft and Joseph Pearce.
