G.K. Chesterton Images — Catholic Pinterest Board of the Week


Follow CatholicPinner on Twitter

If you are a fan of Catholic literature, it’s likely that you’ve enjoyed the work of G.K. Chesterton. If you haven’t, it’s time to bust out your library card and spend the rest of the summer discovering this Catholic literary giant. As a Chesterton fan, I was thrilled to discover the Pinterest boards of The American Chesterton Society, and especially my favorite of their boards, G.K. Chesterton Images. This particular board is a treasure trove of wonderful photographs and illustrations of the author, ranging from a compelling childhood photo to a “cigarette card”. The collection also includes photos of Chesterton’s beloved bride Frances. Follow  G.K. Chesterton Images, and then treat yourself to a weekend reading some of his best work. And for Chesterton fans, be sure to check out The American Chesterton Society.

    I think that Pinterest is useful for evangelization because it is an easy way to share things about our faith. Also, I have gotten a TON of great information about Catholicism and all the things that are happening in the Church from Pinterest

  2. I do use pinterest for decorating ideas but also since I’m a recent convert to Catholicism I like to post things that I hope will intrigue my non Catholic friends to ask questions.
