"Church and Conversion" is the translation of "The Catholic Church and Conversion," a book by G.K. Chesterton, published in 1926. With foreword by Hilaire Belloc. In this work, Chesterton discusses the process of conversion to Catholicism and the role of the Catholic Church in guiding people through this process.
The book is divided into three parts. In the first part, entitled "Introductory: Some General Aspects," Chesterton discusses some general ideas about Catholicism and the attitudes of the outside world toward the church. In the second part, "Three Stages of Conversion," he explains the three stages people often go through during their conversion to Catholicism: the stage of seeking truth, the stage of discovering the church and the stage of accepting church authority. In the third and final section, "Seven Types of Conversion," Chesterton describes seven different ways people can come to Catholicism, ranging from rational arguments to emotional experiences.
"The Catholic Church and Conversion" is an insightful and accessible book that highlights Chesterton's unique take on conversion and Catholicism. His writing style is lively and engaging, and he manages to present complex ideas in an understandable and engaging way. The book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the process of conversion or who wants to know more about Chesterton's own spiritual journey.
