G. K. Chesterton

Gilbert Keith Chesterton was one of the critically acclaimed English novelist, orator, poet, journalist, biographer, philosopher, art and literary critic, and dramatist. He was better known by the name G.K. Chesterton and was often regarded as the ‘paradox prince’. The Time magazine has observed that author Chesterton used to make his points with the help of some popular proverbs, sayings, and allergies in his novels. He is particularly well known for developing the character of the fictional priest detective named Father Brown as well as for the reasoned Apologetics.
