I am surprised that Essays of a Catholic slipped under my radar for so long. It is probably the best single work for summing up Belloc's ideas. It ranges from fairly singular topics, like usury, to broader ones which draw upon his entire corpus, such as "Faith and Industrial Capitalism." "Science as the Enemy of Truth" is almost a little too on-the-nose under the Fauci regime.
The book still doesn't get close to covering the entire breadth of Belloc's nonfiction work, but it may serve as a good jumping off point for the uninitiated. For an old Belloc fan like me, it was a great pleasure.
