YIMC Book Club — It’s the Anglican by a Nose!

Posted by Webster 
The polls closed at 3 a.m.! How did that happen, you may ask, given that Webster and Frank are in the Eastern time zone and set the time limit for midnight? Must have been some chicanery in Chicago! But however it happened C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity is the next YIM Catholic Book Club selection by a final margin of 39–37 over the runner-up. You can all begin reading.

My final post on Chesterton’s Orthodoxy will be published this Thursday, and Frank will lead the discussion of Lewis, beginning next week. He will finalize the schedule and decide how we break down Lewis’s 33 chapters into readable chunks.

Reed of God by Caryll Houselander garnered 17 votes and Barabbas by Par Lagerkvist only 6 votes. Meanwhile, the runner-up that many of you wanted, The Great Heresies by Hillaire Belloc, will be our next selection.

The picture illustrating this post is C. S. Lewis reading, not Warren Jewell gloating.
