Overview
"We need a new kind of mystic," writes Fr. Robert Wild; and in The Tumbler of God, he presents a spiritual portrait of G.K. Chesterton that convincingly shows why he is precisely the kind of new mystic we need. Chesterton's mysticism was grounded in an experiential knowledge that existence is a gift from God, and that the only response is a spirituality of gratitude and praise for the unveiled beauty of creation. "What was his 'secret'? It was to love the splendor of the real, and to live in adulthood the innocence and wonder of the child who sees everything for the first time. The Gospel tells us we must become again like little children in order to enter the kingdom. Chesterton shows us how."

"One of the best books I have ever read on Chesterton."--Dale Ahlquist

"A book that speaks openly of what is, in the end, the most important thing about him: his friendship with God."--Stratford Caldecott

"A ground-breaking examination of G.K. Chesterton."--Mark Sebanc

"Robert Wild's fascinating perspective is a welcome addition to the enlivening field of Chestertonian studies."--Chris Chan

"An exploration, made with deep and affectionate familiarity with GKC's writings, of what is meant by the word 'mystic'."--Francis Phillips, The Catholic Herald
