The G.K. Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture at Seton Hall University announces the publication of volume 45, nos. 1 & 2, Spring Summer 2019 of its widely recognized journal The Chesterton Review.
"Remote and ineffectual dons do not rate highly with Chesterton. …The dead hand of academia can crush the life out of anything, including academics themselves. Yet it does not have to be that way. The opposite of bad academic writing is good academic writing. Clarity, lucidity, elegance of expression: these are the intellectual virtues prized by Chesterton. They are also prized and, I hope, exemplified by The Chesterton Review." ---Dermot Quinn, Associate Editor, The Chesterton Review
