The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.Gilbert Keith Chesterton

What is the American Chesterton Society?
The American Chesterton Society (ACS), founded in 1996, works to promote interest in G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936), one of the 20th century’s greatest writers. A convert to the Catholic Church, Chesterton wrote over a hundred books during his lifetime and published over five thousand essays in newspapers and magazines.
One of the most quoted writers in the English language, yet one of the least studied, G.K. Chesterton foresaw and wrote about the issues we struggle with today: social injustice, the culture of death, the decline of the arts, assaults on religion, and attacks on the family and on the dignity of the human person.
Interest in, and appreciation for, Chesterton’s work is growing thanks in part to the sustained efforts of the ACS.
