US#32-Public Schools Teach Chesterton

Uncommon Sense #32 Public Schools Teaching Chesterton Special guest: public high school teacher Jim McPherrin. I first heard about Jim from Kevin O’Brien, when Kevin said he had unearthed a very rare personage, a public high school teacher in the Chicago area who was actually teaching Chesterton in his classroom. This sounded quite subversive and I wondered how he was able to do that, because Chesterton is so avant guard, so counter-cultural, and so religious. Find out more by listening!

Part One-What If I Just Don't Get Chesterton? What does it say about me if I don't get Chesterton? Everyone seems to love him, but I just can't get into reading him. His stuff is too dense, too wordy, too lengthy, too unwieldy. I *want* to like Chesterton, but I just don't get him. If any of this rings a bell, this and the next episode of Uncommon Sense are for you.
