October 9th Our Book Is G.K. Chesterton's The Everlasting Man
The Everlasting Man is a book that addresses the secularism of Chesterton's time as well represented by H.G. Well's The Outline of History and Auguste Comte's Religion of Humanity which influenced the development of scientism, and secular humanism in the early twentieth century.
Those particular influences were exactly those C.S. Lewis needed to be cured of and The Everlasting Man provided just the tonic he needed. Notice the C.S. Lewis quote at the top of the illustration at the left. Chesterton has been termed the Apostle of Common Sense and he performed exactly that role for Lewis.
Our schedule for the rest of the year is:

November 13th C.S. Lewis Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold Elizabeth our Discussion Leader. December 11th or some other date TBD Our Party to plan the New Year Stephen Has Volunteered to Host.
