Sorry, We Gotta' Deal with Hell

"Thinking about Hell is a very good idea. It is a good way to keep ourselves out of it."

That's how Dale Ahlquist, the president of the American Chesterton Society, concludes a provocative (and worthwhile) essay to be found over at the ACS website. Not surprisingly, the essay has a Chesterton angle that you'll find stimulating and it includes the fine writing and wry wit of America's most effective Chesterton promoter.

Sure, you may not agree with every point of Dale's article. As an evangelical, for instance, it is inevitable that I find certain disagreements with my Catholic friend. But yet I always find much value (and a lot of sheer pleasure) in Dale Ahlquist's perspectives on life, liberty and literature.
