I haven't written much about GK Chesterton, and as he is a favorite of mine I think I ought to give him some print. I consider myself a Chesterton novice since I've only known about him for a few years. My introduction to Chesterton was watching The Apostle of Common Sense tv show on EWTN. I totally fell for Dale Ahlquist's promotion of this author. What a great tv presence Dale has; I enjoy watching and listening to him immensely. I'll bet he's even more fun in person.
My first Chesterton read was Gilbert Keith Chesterton by Maisie Ward. Actually, I haven't made it through that book yet - but it happened to be the first book available to me because my mother had it in her possession. I think she said it was given to her by a friend at St. Ben's. Inside the book is written 12-8-43 J.E.M.K. I suppose my mom knows the name. There are also 10 typewritten pages - a book review. I believe it was read as a speech of sorts because the last page has a handwritten note in fountain pen that says, "Given March 27, 1944 Minneapolis Catholic Youth Center Book Club".
The next Chesterton I read was some of the Father Brown stories available at the public library. Then I purchased and read Ahlquist's Apostle of Common Sense book, a subscription to Gilbert! magazine, a bumper sticker, a poster, and five signature cards with photos. Now I own a few more books, but haven't had time yet to read them all myself - only to promote them and share them with others.
Chesterton is available widely on the web - some of his books and essays in their entirety. There are several blogs by people who love GKC; I'll try to add a few to the list at right.
More another day - duty calls.
