Footage of G.K. Chesterton and Free Books

E-readers can download an entire library of the writings of the great Christian thinker, apologist, and wit G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) available for a free download here. I especially recommend his 1908 classic Orthodoxy available here.

You can also download his masterwork The Everlasting Man (1925), a book that was pivotal in C.S. Lewis's conversion to Christianity (which I am in the process of reading now, aghast and embarrassed that I had never heard of it until recently), here.

I've heard of it, and even own it, but alas, have started to read it several times but my puny intellect cannot wrap itself around the content.

Dear Paul:

I started the book in a fog - unfamiliar with Chesterton's 1925 context. But keep reading! The fog clears! By no means do you have a "puny intellect." The context is just a little different for us - but as you read along you will realize that it hasn't changed as much as we might think - only the names.
