The November “Towers” is now on stands and online.
Any list of history’s most influential Christian writers will include Gilbert Keith Chesterton, unless, of course, it’s a poor list. His fiction and literary critical work merited him significant praise during his own lifetime, even making him one the most discussed personalities in such secular publications as The New York Times; his apologetic writings profoundly influenced the culture around him, and the culture around us too. As a picture of that influence, Dan DeWitt, dean of Boyce College, writes in this issue of “Towers” about Chesterton’s vision for art done christianly. We also offer a sampling of Chesterton’s characteristic wit — Chestertonisms on everything from religious liberty to cheese.
