9/3/01 CT article by Philip Yancey
This article, taken from Yancey’s new book, Soul Survivor, is his praise of G.K. Chesterton’s writings. His praise goes too far. It is one thing to appreciate a man’s conservative writing (which I also share) in a way in which we may appreciate Rush or Dr. Laura, but quite another to make such people born again. If G.K.C. was a man of faith, why did he conscientiously join the Catholic Church? I think he did so with every understanding of its works system. Then let’s give him the respect his choice demands.
