    I thoroughly enjoyed this devotional for Lent and Easter and plan to use it again. I especially liked the daily Lenten Actions and will continue to revisit them throughout the year as a tool to strengthen my faith and relationship with God.

    We have used various books over the years for different seasons (Advent, Christmas, Passover, Lent, Easter, etc), and most of them have been moved to the "take this book to Half Price books" shelf because they were sappy or were just too long for a family reading. Happily, this is not one of those books. We found "The Center for the Study of C.S. Lewis and Friends" and their book for Advent and Christmas. We went through most of that book during Advent and Christmas and found it very worthwhile.

We went through most of that book during Advent and Christmas and found it very worthwhile. So we took a chance on this book, and found it equally worthwhile. The format of each day is a reading from a book or poem written by G.K. Chesterton, then a scripture reading, a brief prayer, then an action (Lenten or Easter, depending on the portion of the book.) It helps that I am familiar with and enjoy Chesterton's writings already, so the book reading prior to the scripture reading is always something I'm interested in. I would recommend this book!

    lovely little devotional to ponder before, during and after Easter. Each day starts with a quote from Chesterton, scripture, a prayer and then an action. Some wonderful tidbits: No one doubts that an ordinary man can get on with this world..but cane he hate it enough to change it, and yet love it enough to think it worth changing? The cross cannot be defeated, for it is Defeat. The refusal of God to explain His Design is itself a burning hint of His Design. The riddles of God are more satisfying tha lovely little devotional to ponder before, during and after Easter. Each day starts with a quote from Chesterton, scripture, a prayer and then an action.

The cross cannot be defeated, for it is Defeat. The refusal of God to explain His Design is itself a burning hint of His Design. The riddles of God are more satisfying than the solutions of man. (upon finding the empty tomb) What they were looking at was the first day of a new creation, with a new heaven and a new earth; and in a semblance of the gardener God walked again in the garden, in the cool not of the evening, but of the dawn. It is not bigotry to be certain we are right, but it is bigotry to be unalbe to imagine how we might possibly have gone wrong.

    This was a great devotional book for the time of Lent and Easter. Chesterton is always fascinating, and his thoughts pertaining to the Passion and Resurrection are especially insightful. This book is structured with a Chesterton quote, related scripture, prayer, and Lenten action for each day. At times it was difficult to see the connection between the quote and the scripture, but as a whole it fulfilled its purpose of preparing my mind and heart for the Easter season. I would highly recommend i This was a great devotional book for the time of Lent and Easter.

    G.K. Chesterton is perhaps the most keen mind in the philosophy of common sense and its application to religious life. In this 54 day text one is confronted with an amazing logic, well selected Scripture, provoking prayers, and daily challenges to live, and live better at that. If you are looking for an excellent text to encourage and motivate you to deeper spirituality, then this would be an excellent addition to your library.

    A disappointing book. To use the name of G.K Chesterton is to set expectations very high, and this book fails to meet those expectations. The daily meditations are not my idea of learning from G.K. Chesterton. The matching of Chesterton with Scripture is well done, but there needed to be discussion about both the quote from Chesterton and the Scripture passage. I was not impressed.
