You’ve likely heard me talk about G.K. Chesterton before. He’s one of my great heroes.
The English Catholic writer was a bubbling mix of joy, wit, wonder, and paradox. He was the premier English journalist of the early-twentieth century, as well as a gifted novelist, poet, and essayist.
He’s also the most famous Catholic convert of the past 100 years, and his writings have led countless others to faith (his book Everlasting Man was instrumental in C.S. Lewis’ conversion; his book Orthodoxy was pivotal to mine.)
Yet even among Chesterton fans, few know that in addition to his extraordinary books and essays, he was an exemplary husband and father.
Today, we desperately need models of married sanctity, saintly husbands and wives who pursued the call to holiness in their marriages, work, and ordinary lives.
Chesterton did that. He loved his wife, Frances—he romanced her, like knights of old—and their marriage was immensely fruitful. Because of this, we should study him, not just his books, but his life.
That’s why, at the most recent Society of G.K. Chesterton Conference, I gave a talk to 500+ people titled “G.K. Chesterton as Husband and Father”.
I’ve decided to offer the talk again (free) in an upcoming webinar, this Tuesday (11/26) at 7:00pm ET.
