A Year With G.K. Chesterton

"Since Christianity broke the heart of the world and mended it, one cannot really be a pagan;
one can only be an anti-Christian."
G.K. Chesterton

To 'sum up' G.K. Chesterton in one volume is akin to eating an elephant, and Kevin Belmonte has done an admirable job of providing the reader with bite-sized pieces. A Year With G.K. Chesterton is just that- a daily scripture verse, an appropriate quote, a passage from an article or book and a factoid from the day in history. Whether you are new to Chesterton or have read his every word, this book is an excellent way to begin or end any day (I tend to save my daily reading for bedtime). 

I highly recommend this book!


At the opening of a lecture Chesterton gave on January 23 at the Times Square Theatre in New York City, he was introduced as "the Prince of Paradoxes."
