“Jousting with the Devil” Giveaway!


“Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others.” – St. Augustine

Since I’ve built up a large collection of extra books and resources, every week I give some away absolutely free, no strings attached.

Each giveaway lasts seven days with a new one beginning every Friday. You can enter any time during the week. Check out my past giveaways here.

Thanks to the American Chesterton Society, today I’m giving away THREE copies of the new paperback version of Fr. Robert Wild new book, Jousting with the Devil: Chesterton’s Battle with the Father of Lies.



Jousting with the Devil: Chesterton’s Battle with the Father of Lies

Fr. Robert Wild
American Chesterton Society, 194 pages, paperback
JoustingG.K. Chesterton believed in the Devil before he believed in God.

Jousting with the Devil: Chesterton’s Battle with the Father of Lies explores G.K. Chesterton’s encounter with the reality that is Satan. Whether or not you are familiar with Chesterton, you will be surprised at how familiar Chesterton is with this subject.

Though he seems to have an intuitive sense of truth whatever his subject matter, when Chesterton writes about the Devil, he knows what he is talking about for more than intuitive reasons because his wisdom is supplemented by personal experience.

  • DColeman

    Missed this giveaway but I love to read GKC. I don’t understand it all, but I really do enjoy chewing on his words. I feel at once smart and dumb! I can’t explain it any better.

  • Jim

    I know more about what Chesterton wrote than I do about him as a man.

  • Marco Paredes

    I have not heard of this book or Chesterton’s writings about evil and the devil. It sounds intriguing. I would love to win and read it.

  • Sonya_Morris

    I would love to read it because it sounds like a great book.

  • Connie Naylor

    I would like to read about his experience with Satan. I don’t know of Chersterton and this would be a good way to be acquainted with him. Then I would like to give this book to my parish’s library so others may have the opportunity to read it.

  • Gus Kroll

    Chesterton has always been fascinating to me.

  • Tracy

    i would love to win this book sounds very interesting.

  • jbravo625

    Getting a good book to read is always a win. Getting a free book from the American Chesterton Society is a double win!

  • Hildred Cherry

    Sound like a good book.

  • Roberta B.

    Sounds like a great read!

  • Mary Ann

    Want to read more Chesterton!

  • Jeff Warchal

    Chesterton’s writing certainly does display his deep thoughts. If anyone would clear up any confusion one has about God, it would be him! I always like to read/hear what he has to say.

  • M. Carlson

    I am curious to read what Fr. Wild gleaned from this aspect of Chesterton. GKC’s poems and essays are overwhelmingly in favour of fighting the good fight–and doing it quite joyfully. While his conveying such a steadfastly impudent attitude eye to eye with the reality of evil might not come as a surprise to his long-time readers, I say the more reinforcement the rest of us can get in that attitude, the better.

  • Jennifer McWethy

    I think that spiritual warfare is a very relevant topic in light of recent events.

  • Kevin Noles

    It is hard to beat a book on Chesterton

  • Tricia Czech

    I would like to know more about Chesterton’s views of the devil and in what ways he dealt with his own spiritual warfare. I think it is imperative that we all know more than one perception!

  • Reuben Andrew Herrle

    Looks great!

  • jim

    I love Chesterton.


    g. k. Chesterton is compass for our confusing times

  • Isabel

    Chesterton is ALWAYS interesting and worth hearing from.

  • Molly

    Sounds amazing! Of course, with a title like that, who wouldn’t want to read it?!

  • Louise

    I recommend this book! I have a copy, so I won’t enter the draw for a freebie, but it’s well worth reading. 🙂

  • Maureen

    Thank you Brandon! I already own it, but I’m stocking up for Christmas presents.

  • BeccaBean

    I would love to read this book…I keep requesting Chesterton books from the library and by golly they are always requested back before I can finish them! If I won this one I would finally be able to finish one =)

  • Mary simoes

    Pick me pick me, pretty please this book looks awesome!!!! 🙂

  • Elizabeth Fiore

    Would love to win.

  • Laurel

    I have read two books by or about Chesterton and I’m a big fan of C.S. Lewis – and the book sounds good.

  • Francis

    I wanna know more about Chesterton’s perspective on the devil.

  • T Krempski

    This book sounds very interesting. I hear a lot about Chesterton these days. I hope I win a copy !
