"Gilbert Keith Chesterton, KC*SG (29 May 1874 14 June 1936) , was an English writer, [2] philosopher, lay theologian, and literary and art critic. He has been referred to as the "prince of paradox". [3] Time magazine has observed of his writing style: "Whenever possible Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, allegoriesfirst carefully turning them inside out." [4]Chesterton created the fictional priest-detective Father Brown, [5] and wrote on apologetics. Even some of those who disagree with him have recognised the wide appeal of such works as Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man. [4][6] Chesterton routinely referred to himself as an "orthodox" Christian, and came to identify this position more and more with Catholicism, eventually converting to Catholicism from High Church Anglicanism. George Bernard Shaw, his "friendly enemy", said of him, "He was a man of colossal genius." (from Wikipedia)
