Lewis’s conversion to Christianity, and on the development of Tolkien’s understanding of the imaginative process, Chesterton continues to inspire new generations of readers. In this five-week seminar, Joseph Pearce, author of Wisdom & Innocence: A Life of G. K. Chesterton, will lead us through some of Chesterton’s most important works, discussing the ideas that animate them.
