Ballad of the White Horse

Mary and I just finished reading G.K.Chesterton's "Ballad of the White Horse."  This coming week we will begin to look deeper into the references, the characterizations and of course, GKC's wonderful insight into the real battle still being waged today.

One reference I found today is delightful.  Written as part of a series called Chesterton 101 will be one of many resources we will use to guide our study.  The American Chesterton Society does a grand job of helping folks discover all the richness that GKC has given to us in his thought and writing.

For my own light reading, Chesterton's fiction fits the bill.  Having exhausted most of those, I am now working through P.D. Wodehouse.  Perhaps it is my English heritage, but I find the understated humor, the eccentricity of all the characters in these stories to be endearing.  For one of my favorite American authors, give Ralph McInerny a try.

  1. I'm glad I read this post. Our home schooling has fallen by the wayside, pathetically. This looks doable and important. Thank you .
