Segment 4 – The Story of the Family: G.K. Chesterton on the Only State that Creates and Loves Its Own Citizens
“In a world that has lost touch with normality, it takes a pioneer to rediscover the wonders of the normal. This masterful compilation of texts and quotes from the prolific G. K. Chesterton, edited by Dale Ahlquist, illustrates the glory of the family—the heritage of romance, love, marriage, parenthood, and home. It is a hymn in praise of the saucepan, the kettle, the hairbrush, the umbrella stand, what Chesterton calls ‘the brave old bones of life’.” (Originally aired April 18, 2022)
