Read another amazing quote today about G. K. Chesterton. It’s from Brennan Manning’s book “Abba’s Child,” which is completely ripping me right now. Teaching me about being real, and finding my identity in Christ (see yesterday’s post).

Standing on a London street corner, G. K. Chesterton was approached by a newspaper reporter. “Sir, I understand that you recently became a Christian. May I ask you one question?”

“Certainly,” replied Chesterton.

“If the risen Christ suddenly appeared at this very moment and stood behind you, what would you do?”

Chesterton looked the reporter squarely in the eye and said, “He is.”

…another reason why G. K. Chesterton is awesome.
