Description of A Year with G. K. Chesterton: 365 Days of Wisdom, Wit, and Wonder by Kevin Belmonte
Pull a comfy chair up to a warm hearth and enjoy 365 daily offerings of wit and wisdom from G. K. Chesterton.
"A Year with G.K. Chesterton" gives one the feeling of being welcomed to an inn where a fire blazes in the hearth and a hearty meal awaits. Chesterton bids readers enter. Scarcely anything worthy of comment seems to have escaped Chesterton's notice, and his reflections on all manner of subjects-faith, literature, the visual arts, or philosophy-are as trenchant and moving as they are wise.
People walked to places in Chesterton's day and took their time over things in ways that reveal what we have lost in our constant rush to get to who-knows-where with ever-increasing speed. Chesterton reminds us that it is well worth consulting a map of the cosmos before a swift departure from the station.
Those who read one passage a day from the collection that follows will be glad of the chance to keep company with so thoughtful a friend as Chesterton. The recurring themes of his writing are so many boon companions-travelers well met as we journey to the far country-the place where things we now see in twilight will become reality in the swift sunrise of God's making.
