Item Description...
This is a collection of G.K. Chesterton's provocative writings on a subject close to his heart - the family, and the corresponding themes of men and women, children, sex, marriage and divorce. The family was a central element in Chesterton's vision, a unifying theme of his literary work. His eloquent defense of the sacredness of the home is even more applicable in our times because of the tremendous moral problems in our society that threaten the modern family. Chesterton's insights will be a deep inspiration to married couples, those preparing for marriage, priests, teachers, and anyone else interested in marriage and the family.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Compilation Most Excellent  Mar 1, 2008
While I could say much about the sundry subjects discussed among the varied essays which were compiled for this small delight, covering topics from the Home to Family to Children to Birth Control, I think it would be more appropriate to give my lauds for the single theme which seems to run through all of the collected essays. Namely, like so much of Chesterton's works, these selections are wholly united on common sense and a realization of awe for the simple beauty of the world as it is given to us. Through all the essays on the family, Chesterton asserts the panoply of human interaction which is concomitant with the fairy-tale which is the family, an institution over which we have little control (much to the disdain of many moderns and post-moderns). Additionally, in a greater way, he attributes this sense of awe and majesty to the very inception of our lives, a sense which is most poignantly presented in his poem, "By the Babe Unborn." Throughout his considerations of the ideas of modernity which plagued his day, Chesterton continuously makes witty remarks which seem to only back his assertions of the ludicrous nature of those against whom he is writing. This light-hearted approach - so very standard to the Chestertonian corpus - coupled with the editor's excellent selection of texts of a great variety (yet revolving around the aforementioned central themes of awe and common sense) , make this a delightful read for anyone who desires a light-hearted, no-nonsense set of reflections on the institution of the family. I highly recommend it.
Brave New Family  Mar 22, 2007
This is a collection of Chesterton's musings on family life, etc. He is a mater of language, and therefore it is delightful to read. His stance on many things is not for the faint of heart.
Could it be??  Jun 29, 2006
Unless I'm mistaken, this most be the english language edition of spanish writer Alvaro De Silva's book called "El Amor o la Fuerza del Sino", one of the most fascinating books about Love, Family, and Marriage ever written.

This is basically a compilation of genius G.K. Chesterton's essays, poems and chapters that deal with those matters.

In a world where families continually live under the attacks and pressures of modern society, the timeless truths expressed by these selected works by Chesterton (and some of those published here are extremely hard to find) bring a touch of comfort and fresh air that will be heartily welcomed by any real free-thinking reader, or any family for that matter.

A must buy for any Chestertonian!
How to save the family.  Mar 28, 2000
A compilation of G.K. Chesterton's writings on men and women, children, sex, divorce, marriage, and the family, Chesterton's essays are as appropriate today as they were when they were written.

Chesteron, as only Chesterton can, defends the sacredness of marriage and the home so desperately in need of salvaging today.

Broken into short chapters, the book is easily read and very enjoyable.
