Overview

“This world of ours has some purpose; and if there is a purpose, there is a Person. I had always felt life first as a story: and if there is a story, there is a Storyteller.” --G. K. Chesterton. During Chesterton’s lifetime, a host of perspectives clamored for his attention, but he saw nothing as vital and alive as Christianity. A Year with G. K. Chesterton, a daily devotional dedicated to the life and legacy of G. K. Chesterton, brings this truth into a brand new light. A true anthology, A Year with G. K. Chesterton compiles the best of Chesterton’s many works and presents them in concise, memorable selections. From New Year’s Day to New Year’s Eve, each daily entry will guide you through: • A timeless verse from Scripture • A thoughtful passage from G. K. Chesterton’s incredible body of work • A moment for reflection and appreciation Praise for A Year with G. K. Chesterton: “Chesterton once a day? Well, that’s a start. It is good to see that someone is finally recognizing the need for a daily minimum requirement of mirth and meditation from GKC.” --Dale Ahlquist, President, American Chesterton Society. “Who could not be grateful for a year spent with GKC? The great subverter of everything taken for granted, he stretches and deepens us with his insights, shakes us with his startling paradoxes and delights us with his wit. Thank God there is no getting to the end of Chesterton.” --Os Guinness, author of A Free People’s Suicide. A true anthology, the best of Chesterton’s many works are presented in concise, memorable selections. From New Year’s Day to New Year’s Eve, each page contains a passage of Scripture and myriad moments for reflection, appreciation, and laughter.
