“We cannot free a thing from its own nature. We can only love a thing, and defend it for being itself and not something else. When any triangle loses one of its three sides, it stops being a triangle. There is no argument about this. The same logic applies if the triangle happens to be a family …”

So writes Dale Ahlquist in his “Prelude” to this masterful compilation of insights gleaned from the prolific and prophetic pen of G.K. Chesterton, who made his mark as a defender of sanity in an insane world.

Though we shouldn't have to defend normal things, the fact is, our society has lost touch with the normal and seems to exalt the abnormal. Here is a book that makes a clear case for the family, the glorious heritage of the love between a man and a woman, marriage, parenthood, family life and the home. Chesterton keenly pits these grounded truths against the fashionable fallacies of divorce, contraception, and abortion, as well as the troubling philosophies afflicting public education and the workplace.

Society starts with the family. It falls apart if the family falls apart. As G.K. Chesterton says: “The first things must be the very fountains of life, love and birth and babyhood; and these are always covered fountains, flowing in the quiet courts of the home.”
