A contemporary of, but not as well known as C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien, Chesterton’s creativity matched theirs, although in his own unique style. This book is arranged with daily portions of scripture, thoughts, quotes and moments in Chesterton’s life, to be digested over three hundred and sixty-five days.
An example? Whew! So many to choose from! Here’s one: March 27 “…in my vision, the heavenly chariot flies thundering through the ages, the dull heresies sprawling and prostrate, the wild truth reeling but erect. “
A Year with G. K. Chesterton is a book to read slowly and savor, not because the syntax is from an older generation but because the thoughts startle one and a reader will ponder, “Could I think so wondrously and freshly? Can I be like Chesterton and see the world as new? How do I provide others with such wit and wisdom?”
However, Chesterton would probably respond to such a desire, “Be who God created you to be. Learn who you are and be honest about all facets of yourself.”
So content yourself with enjoying the way God created G. K. Chesterton. Feed your soul with this well edited and designed book.
