G. K. Chesterton:

G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was a prolific English journalist and author best known for his mystery series featuring the priest-detective Father Brown and for the metaphysical thriller The Man Who Was Thursday. Baptized into the Church of England, Chesterton underwent a crisis of faith as a young man and became fascinated with the occult. He eventually converted to Roman Catholicism and published some of Christianity's most influential apologetics, including Heretics and Orthodoxy.

This book played a very essential role in my conversion to Catholicism. Chesterton's unusual kind of evangelism gave me an understanding of the spiritual, transcendent Church that is found to be so very loveable in spite of all the errors of the bodily church past and present.
