About the New Issue

All directness is divine. If God is hiding, in other words, He is hiding in plain sight. “Thinkers of [a particular] school have a tendency to believe that the concrete is a symbol of the abstract,” Chesterton wrote in The Speaker in 1902. ‘The truth, the truth at the root of all mysticism, is quite the other way. The abstract is the symbol of the concrete… Just in so far as we get into the abstract, we get away from the reality, we get away from the mystery… God made the concrete, but man made the abstract.” Such is the theme that connects the articles of this issue. —Dermot Quinn, Editor, The Chesterton Review.

The issue contains an Introduction by Dermot Quinn, articles by John Peatfield, Gregory Dowling, Chris Altieri, Maxwell Patchet, David Pickering, Daniel Frampton and part II of Gregory Glazov article. As with all issues of the Review, there is also a good selection of Chesterton’s own writing, along with Book and Film Reviews, as well as many News and Comments items, well as Letters and Photo Galleries.
