He debated the great questions that have always preoccupied human beings with other great minds such as George Bernard Shaw and H.G. Wells, and was friends with Oscar Wilde and Hilaire Belloc. G.K.'s masterpiece "The Everlasting Man" was instrumental in the conversion of C.S. Lewis, who said it was "the best popular apologetic I know."
What transpires from the flamboyance and humour of his poetry and prose is a man in love with life and with God, constantly putting his intellect at the service of ordinary men and of an extraordinary God. There is something special that runs throughout Chesterton's books that ties all of his ideas together and sets them apart from the strange and confusing and broken philosophies of the modern world. The common thread in Chesterton's writings is common sense. It is instantly recognizable and utterly refreshing.
This is why Dale Ahlquist (President of the American Chesterton Society) dubbed G.K. as "The Apostle of Common Sense". Common Sense unfortunately has become quite uncommon, and been replaced by the common nonsense of modern atheistic men. "The first effect of not believing in God is that you lose your common sense." - G.K. Chesterton
