Read your Chesterton
Allen Barra has a nice little piece in today's Wall Street Journal about a man who has become one of my favorite authors - G.K. Chesterton. I read The Man Who Was Thursday and a good part of the Father Brown mysteries earlier this year, and really enjoyed them. I've also delved a little into Chesterton's Christian apologetics - Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man, for example - as well as his biographies of St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Francis of Assisi. All of them are very good and very entertaining. If you're looking for something to read this Christmas season, you might want to check out Chesterton.
