Book Review: A Year with G. K. Chesterton 365 Days of Wisdom, Wit, and Wonder by Kevin Belmonte

A Year with G. K. Chesterton by Kevin Belmonte delivers a handful of daily wit and inspiration for the Chesterton fan - and always that little bit ot "hmmm..." that leads to deeper pondering. Each "Daily Reading" includes a passage of Scripture along with a short selection (or a few short selections) of Chesterton - little "bite-sized" readings that somehow or another always seem to have me pondering my own daily path. I had been a fan of the Father Brown series, but I was not sa familiar with Chesterton's other writings until after I received this book, which encouraged me (nay - shoved me out the door to the library is more like it) to read on. While I adore Chesterton humor (who does not?), I also have come to truly admire the deeper sentiments of faith...the illustrations of a faith well-lived and well-explained.

I would highly recommend this title to any Chesterton fan, and to anyone wanting to introduce a friend to Chesterton!
