One of G. K. Chesterton's finest collection of essays, The Well and the Shallows, explore more controversial themes than typically seen in the work of the English writer. Written with Chesterton's biting wit, he touches on various cultural, social and moral issues from birth control to Catholicism.

Chesterton's perceptive analysis of core issues within modern society remains startling relatable nearly 100 years since its publication. Written shortly after his conversion to Catholicism, he writes with tremendous foresight focusing on subjects like Catholicism, Reformation and Protestantism, and other profound writings on political and social issues based around the central theme of religion.

Essays in this volume include:

My Six Conversions

The Return to Religion

The Higher Nihilism

The Ascetic At Large

Babies and Distribution

A Century of Emancipation

Trade Terms

Shocking the Modernists

Sex and Property

Why Protestants Prohibit

Where is the Paradox?

The Well and the Shallows is an insightful collection of essays on some of the most important ideas of the modernist era written by one of the greatest English writers of the 20th century. It is a perfect read for those interested in the work of G. K. Chesterton or any with a broader interest in historical, social analysis from a religious perspective.
