We are currently working our way through “In Defense of Sanity,” which is a fairly recent anthology of essays spanning most of Chesterton’s writing career.  October readings are as follows: On GargoylesThe Fading Fireworks and The Furrows.  I’m not looking at the book at the moment, so depending on the length and “meat” of these essays, it’s possible we’ll only get through two.
