Chesterton was an accomplished and noted essayist. All Things Considered is one of Chesterton’s earliest collections of essays, and deals perhaps more than any other with religious and theological topics. This volume contains thirty-five essays on spiritualism, humanitarianism, science and religion, morality, and more.
G. K. Chesterton was born in London in 1874. He worked at the Redway and T. Fisher Unwin publishing house until 1902, when he began writing regularly—his weekly columns appeared for decades in the Daily News and The Illustrated London News. In all, he wrote more than 80 books, hundreds of poems, 200 short stories, 4,000 essays. Among his writings are his famous apologetic work Orthodoxy, a biography of St. Aquinas, his Father Brown detective stories, The Napoleon of Notting Hill, and The Man Who Was Thursday. He died on June 14, 1936 in Buckinghamshire.
