Witness: Dale Ahlquist

September 28, 2014
 
Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936), better known as G. K. Chesterton, was an English writer, lay theologian, poet, philosopher, dramatist, journalist, orator, literary and art critic, biographer, and Christian apologist. He is often referred to as the "prince of paradox". Art? Politics? History? Literature? Philosophy? Faith? You name it. Whatever it is, G.K. had something wonderful and witty to say about it!
In this WITNESS interview, meet Dale Ahlquist who will help you unpack the wisdom of Chesterton to explain why modern man has lost his ability to think clearly. Dale is one of the most respected G.K. Chesterton scholars in the world, and is President of the American Chesterton Society. Dale received a B.A. from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, and M.A. from Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. He and his wife Laura have six children and live in Minneapolis, Minnesota (USA). Dale has edited eight books of Chesterton's writings.
