“…It is the purpose of the writer to attempt an explanation, not of whether the Christian Faith can be believed, but of how he personally has come to believe it. The book is therefore arranged upon the positive principle of a riddle and its answer. It deals first with all the writer’s own solitary and sincere speculations and then with all the startling style in which they were all suddenly satisfied by the Christian Theology. The writer regards it as amounting to a convincing creed. But if it is not that it is at least a repeated and surprising coincidence.”– From the Preface
The Man Who Was Thursday
“The Man Who Was Thursday…is a gripping adventure story of murderous criminals and brilliant policemen. Yet it is much more than that. Carried along on the boisterous rush of the narrative by Chesterton’s wonderful high-spirited style, [the reader] will soon see that he is being carried into much deeper waters than he had planned on; and the totally unforeseeable denouement will prove for the modern reader, as it has for thousands of others since 1908 when the book was first published, an inevitable and moving experience, as the investigators finally discover who Sunday is.” – From the Foreword
The story in Manalive follows Innocent Smith, an exuberant and eccentric man who brings life and joy into dull and cynical lives in the most unexpected ways. Through this rollicking, delightful, and wonderfully written story, Chesterton demonstrates the idea of human life, and argues for what makes everyday living meaningful and worthwhile.
Three People is a delightful story of the lives of three boys born on the same day, who each grow up to lead very different lives.

The overarching narratives of forgiveness and repentance makes this read not only worthwhile, but memorable.
