Could GK Chesterton Ever be a Saint? (2 segments)
Description: When most people think of saints, they don't think of 300-pound, cigar-smoking Londoners. But that's just what GK Chesteron was. He's one of the best-known writers of the 20th century and his groundbreaking book Orthodoxy is still known for its defense of the faith. So could he ever be a saint? We talk with Dale Ahlquist.
Dale Ahlquist is the author of several books on GK Chesteron, most recently Knight of the Holy Ghost. He's the president of the American Chesterton Society.
