On 2/13 ashertopia wrote: G.K. Chesterton has an amazing, and mostly forgotten, capacity for intelectual wit and a book that proposes offering a daily dose of that wit is fine by me. The problem is that it's not much of a devotional, which is what this book is trying to be. Each day you get a brief Bible verse and a devotional ... Not a Devotional

On 2/11 Linda Wightman wrote: Since I had an obligation to review the book for its publisher, I couldn't really spread the readings out over 365 days—not that I would have exercised that much self-control anyway. Still, it was a delight, mostly. The selections themselves are fully delightful, mostly unknown to me, and interspersed ... A Year with G.K. Chesterton

On 2/2 Marc Buxton wrote: I found this compilation to be a bit lacking. I do not believe this format does justice to the great authorship of Chesterton. The best part of each days reading are the passages from the Bible. And while the Bible is certainly hard to beat (okay, impossible to beat!), a book focusing on Chesterton’s ... Good in theory....

Chesterton’s works and I will never get to where I should be. Education, as my friend George Grant often says, begins with repentance. I am truly sorry that I did not start reading Chesterton ...

This is quite an accomplishment given Chesterton’s dense style. Every day includes a brief scripture reading, and many days include ... A worthwhile read

On 1/12 Quieted Waters wrote: Certain types of books are always difficult to review: study Bibles, commentaries, and how-to books are all on that list for me. So, too, are year-long readers. Whether they be devotionals or selected excerpts from a famous author, books that require 365 days of reading are inevitably difficult to review ... Great Quotes, but Narrow Appeal

On 12/30 Bonnie Buckingham wrote: I have loved all of this author's books on Chesterton so picking another one to review is a pleasure especially if you are a Chesterton fan. Each day has a quote or short passage from Chesterton's works plus what GKC was doing on that day. You will chuckle at GKC's wit and think upon his wisdom ... A Year with G. K. Chesterton
