This debate was sponsored by the Acton Institute, please see http://www.acton.org

The debate took place live on Feb. 18, 2016

 

On February 18th, the Acton Institute was pleased to welcome Jay Richards and Joseph Pearce to our Mark Murray Auditorium for an exchange on two distinct ideas on economics: Distributism vs. Free Markets. The gentleman’s debate was moderated by Acton Institute President Rev. Robert A. Sirico.

Joseph Pearce, writer in residence at Aquinas College in Nashville, Tennessee, and Director of the college’s Center for Faith and Culture, argued in favor of distributism; Jay Richards, Assistant Research Professor School of Business and Economics at The Catholic University of America, a Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute, and Executive Editor of The Stream, defended free markets. It was a lively exchange, and we’re pleased to present the video of the event linked above.

This is an interview with Nancy Brown. Fountains of Carrots is the podcast of Haley Stewart and Christy Isinger.

In this episode we had the pleasure of interviewing the wonderful Nancy C. Brown about one of our favorite topics: the Harry Potter series. Nancy is the author of The Mystery of Harry Potter: A Catholic Family Guide and The Woman Who Was Chesterton (about G.K. Chesterton’s wife Frances).

We had a nerdfest sharing about our love for the books. We discussed how they can be positive for both the moral imagination of the child and for family bonding and we examined some of the Catholic themes in the series. We also went into some of the concerns parents have about the series.

If you haven’t read the Potter books and aren’t sure if you want to share them with your children, I highly recommend reading Nancy’s book. She covers every concern I’ve seen raised about the books, so definitely start there to discern whether they’re right for your family!

Christy Isinger is the voice behind Fountains of Home. She’s a cradle Catholic who homeschools many small children in the frozen tundra of Alberta. Likes: Tequila, G.K. Chesterton, Flannery O’Connor, Agatha Christie, and the occasional online shopping purchase. Dislikes: slow internet and getting everyone dressed to play in the snow. You can find her at her blog, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Haley Stewart is a writer, speaker, blogger, Catholic convert, and mama of three. She’s a bookish southern girl with a love for BBC miniseries, Jane Austen, and bright red lipstick. With her bearded husband, Daniel, she co-authored Feast! Real Food, Reflections, and Simple Living for the Christian Year. You can find her on her personal blog Carrots for Michaelmas or on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest.

What a joy to have had Dale Ahlquist join us again! Dale is the president of the American Chesterton Society, Host of EWTN’s Apostle of Common Sense, co-founder of the Chesterton Academy, author, and scholar of G.K. Chesterton. Today was a good day to speak about conversions to the Catholic Church – and so we spoke about Chesterton’s conversion, and then those of Dale, and 400 plus others. In addition, Chesterton has been an influence in very many vocations to the religious life. And speaking about religious life – why not talk about Chesterton and the Popes! And, because Chesterton was such a big man – we covered many other things. After listening, you can find out more about Dale Ahlquist and G.K. Chesterton at chesterton.org.

Is the American Chesterton Society turning away new people because they keep talking about Chesterton's Catholic faith? His conversion? His religion?

Maybe we'd have more interested people if we'd just keep Chesterton's faith quiet.

Will Chesterton's canonization narrow him into a small little Catholic readership? Will he be narrowed? Can he be narrowed?

 

Nancy Brown discusses these any other questions in this episode of Uncommon Sense.

G. K. Chesterton expert, Dale Alquist, has just released his new book which is ‘the missing Chesterton book’— in effect, the Chesterton autobiography, a biography in the sense that Chesterton has written about Shakespeare, Dickens, and others. The Complete Thinker is a short course in thinking, and an homage to the Apostle of Common Sense.
