Special Order—Subject to Availability


IN HIS MANY BOOKS, James V. Schall, S.J., has taken readers on familiar and fascinating walks with such giants as Plato, Augustine, Jacques Maritain, Josef Pieper, Hilaire Belloc, Paul VI, John Paul II, Benedict XIV, and Flannery O'Connor. He has written brilliantly on politics, philosophy, theology, economics, ethics, literature, popular culture and classical learning.

But only one writer has given him the opportunity to write about all these things at once. Only one writer has continued to provide material for a regular column that has gone on for almost thirty years. And only one writer could evoke so startling an image as "a satisfied crocodile."

G.K. Chesterton.

Here is a colorful, provocative and always lively journey across the vast landscape of Chesterton, led by one of the most distinguished scholars of our time. One great thinker taking on another, shedding light on light, as well as on everything else.
