G.K. Chesterton on Christmas




"...no other story, no pagan legend or philosophical anecdote or historical event, does in fact affect any of us with that peculiar and even poignant impression produced on us by the word Bethlehem. No other birth of a god or childhood of a sage seems to us to be Christmas or anything like Christmas."--G.K. Chesterton (The Everlasting Man)


Christmas reading:  Royal Babies; Christians are Christmas People; Egypt in the Christmas Narrative; The Virgin Birth and the Manger Too!; Genesis and the True Meaning of Christmas; Horite Expectation and the Star of Bethlehem
