The good, the bad, and the odd Feb. 14 2008
By Rich Leonardi - Published on
Format: Paperback
THE GOOD: Chesterton. Aphoristic, brilliant, timeless. Today's entry on the "double benefit" of Becket's hair shirt, for instance. The format -- an excerpt from Chesterton, a verse from Scripture, a prayer, and a Lenten action -- is sound.

THE BAD: The New Revised Standard Version. Graceless, sexless, ugly.

THE ODD: Ligouri is a Catholic publisher. The book's authors are Protestant. One is the director of The Center for C.S. Lewis and Friends, the other an elder in the United Methodist Church. It shows up in the Lenten actions, which encourage prayer but are bereft of the other two works of piety familiar to most Catholics (almsgiving and fasting.) There's also an element of pop psychology. I simply will not "draw two parallel horizontal lines across the page" this Lent.

Chesterton in small bites April 5 2011
By Christy-holly Piszkiewicz - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This Chesterton Lent /pg. a day book is GREAT! Chesterton is very deep writer and sometimes is a bit too hard for even a reader, but this book takes "bites"of his works for each day. Each day combines these momments and with meaningful prayers and relivant scripture makes this a great read for Lent

Great Lent & Easter book March 7 2008
By A. Miller - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed this book. G.K. Chesterton is someone I've not read much. The devotions are thought provoking, prayers insightful, daily action plan varied and beneficial. Each day's devotion could be a bit longer. I'd recommend this to friends.
Will enjoy for lent. March 2 2014

The perfect Lenten companion! March 4 2008
By C. Schnereger - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been reading this book daily during this year's Lenten season. Each selection includes an excerpt from G.K. Chesterton's writing, a verse, a prayer and something to think about or do to apply the teaching during the day. My favorite so far: Windows are meant to be cleaned and forgotten. Sins are like that. When you see a window today, think about these things. Is that cool or what?!! I love the idea of booklets that help us focus on the meaning of Lent, Advent and such. Our busy world seeks to claim all our attention. We can just say, "No!" Blessed Easter to all!
