Product Description

About the Author

Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London, England, in 1874. He went on to study art at the Slade School, and literature at University College in London. Chesterton wrote a great deal of poetry, as well as works of social and literary criticism. Among his most notable books are "The Man Who Was Thursday", a metaphysical thriller, and "The Everlasting Man", a history of humankind's spiritual progress. After Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922, he wrote mainly on religious topics such as "Orthodoxy" and "Heretics". Chesterton is most known for creating the famous priest-detective character Father Brown, who first appeared in "The Innocence of Father Brown". Chesterton died in 1936 at the age of 62.

Thom Satterlee is assistant professor of English at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana, and advisor for the university's student literary magazine, Parnassus. His poetry has appeared in Alaska Quarterly Review, Image, Southwest Review, and The Southern Review and has been selected for Poetry Daily.

HASH(0xa86a61c8) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0xa86a621c) out of 5 stars Chesterton in small bites April 5 2011

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

I lived this guide through Lent with the writings of GK Chesterton. It was pleasure and a help to me and I would recommend it to anyone who perhaps has not had a church relationship that has included Lenten observance but who would like to begin to do so

HASH(0xa86a63f0) out of 5 stars 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.
