SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 4, 2019 /Standard Newswire/ -- From one of the people in the whole world who knows G.K. Chesterton best comes KNIGHT OF THE HOLY GHOST, a short history of one of the most prophetic and prolific writers in history.

Dale Ahlquist, president of the American Chesterton Society, has helped to bring about a great renewed interest in the works of G.K. Chesterton, and the man himself, through his long-running TV series, "The Apostle of Common Sense," as well as his books and lectures. He has authored and contributed to several books on Chesterton, including Common Sense 101: Lessons from G.K. Chesterton, G.K. Chesterton: The Apostle of Common Sense, and In Defense of Sanity: The Best Essays of G.K. Chesterton.

Ahlquist's latest book, KNIGHT OF THE HOLY GHOST, not only answers the question of "who was the cape brandishing man Gilbert Keith Chesterton?" but also includes sections on the man himself as a husband and Catholic convert, his extensive writings and a potential path to sainthood.

Chesterton is currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity, with his name splashed across blogs, news articles and social media. He has been credited with the Catholic conversion of modern-day cultural titans, such as pro-life activist Lila Rose, philosopher Peter Kreeft, New York Times columnist Ross Douthat, movie producer Jason Jones and Fr. Dwight Longenecker. What was it about Chesterton that led people to the Catholic Church? Ahlquist provides an entire book on the reasons.

"Dale Ahlquist is probably the greatest living authority on the life and work of G.K. Chesterton," said Joseph Pearce, author of Wisdom and Innocence: A Life of G.K. Chesterton. "As such, nobody is better qualified to offer a concise and illuminating overview of Chesterton's important contribution to contemporary faith and culture."
