Customer Review

on January 3, 2011
Kevin Belmonte has paid an amazing tribute to G.K. Chesterton in his book `The Quotable Chesterton'. I just wish I was intelligent enough to appreciate it as much as my husband does, being that he's a huge fan.

The entire book is first class, beginning with the Introduction, through the quotes (which are incredibly varied and meaty), and to the end with the Notes section. Belmonte has done a beautiful job of sharing Chesterton's faith and talent in a way that's rarely seen anymore. The thing is, the end of the 19th century and into the 20th century gave us writers of a quality who are a rarity these days. Chesterton is one of those treasures, and the more we can be re-introduced to him, the better.

And while I can't even imagine the man behind the words, being that I hold Chesterton, Lewis, and MacDonald in such high regard, I would like to share my favorite and maybe Chesterton's simplest quote,

"Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese."

I concur.
