Praise for the Print Edition

Chesterton is Everywhere offers an extended exercise in drawing out the Chesterton’s insights on a very, very wide number of subjects, from someone who clearly has found many of them mind- and even life-changing. And drawn out, I should add, by a thoughtful man who has read a lot of Chesterton and a lot of other people, and has thought carefully about the world, and therefore offers insights to the long-time reader of Chesterton as well as the new one. Bravo.

—David Mills, executive editor, First Things
