About This Item
A lay apostolate dedicated to Catholic education and evangelization. A few years after his conversion, G. Chesterton began contributing articles to Catholic magazines on both sides of the Atlantic. As always, he takes on all subjects, writing about anything and everything, but not only are these essays more specifically Catholic than his other works, there is clearly a sense of foreboding. He warns in the introduction that there are not as many jokes as his readers are used to. There is an urgent and somber sense that there are very dark and desperate days ahead, and that among other dangerous developments, the worst war that the world has ever seen is just over the horizon.
He saw before anyone else that something terrible was about to happen to the Jews, and he proclaimed that he would die defending the last Jew in Europe. In spite of that, there are still fools who accuse him of hating the Jews.

But what is perhaps more shocking than his prophecies falling on deaf ears at the time, is that everything he said is still true — and still ignored. We have forgotten completely how bad the world got and how it got that way. Chesterton lays it all out in this book. What do these trends have in common: Birth control, State-enforced education, scientific officialism, academic deconstruction, and Anti-Catholicism?
They are standard elements of the culture in present day America. But they were also the exact same trends seen in the rise of Nazi Germany. Amid the dark warnings, however, Chesterton still delights.
