(4 Sterne)

For those familiar with Belloc and Chesterton, they will enjoy their two contributions. Insightful to be sure, but unapologetic. The second two chapters (by other writers) are less potent and rather simply reinforce in their own way that which was already stated more clearly by the "Chesterbelloc" as their detractors at the time named them.

Anti-catholic history still exists in the minds of men, sad!

Four short essays, well read

(3,5 Sterne)

Four short theological essays, well read. Not much new to GK Chesterton readers, and not great as intro to the subject, as all essays assume some baseline knowledge on readers part. Not sure who target audience is.
