This week, Jimmy and Jason keep moving deeper into G.K. Chesterton’s “Orthodoxy” as they discuss the wisdom of fairytales. Some of life's most important lessons come from Jack and the Beanstalk, Beauty and the Beast, and other classic stories from our childhood. In a world that's grown old in its sin, we all have a pivotal part to play in reclaiming the power of imagination and rebuilding our society upon the most basic truths of human morality. If you want to read a classic fairytale, you can get the Love Good edition of George MacDonald's "The Princess and the Goblin" (AND a Love Good mask) for FREE. All you have to do is subscribe as a patron for as little as $5/month by Friday at midnight! Don't miss out on this epic opportunity: https://lovegoodculture.com/5/
Jimmy and Jason dive into the next few chapters of Orthodoxy with a hard-hitting commentary on our materialistic culture. How easily we forget, especially in these times of social unrest, that there’s so much more to life than what meets the eye. To see beyond the veil is to reclaim your imagination and open the door to believing in what you cannot see. If you don't yet have your copy of G.K. Chesterton’s Orthodoxy, it’s available in our store for $10 (free shipping!) for a little while longer: https://lovegoodculture.com/product/orthodoxy/
In this second episode of our 5-part bonus series with Jason Craig, we dive into the first two chapters of G.K. Chesterton's classic book Orthodoxy. It becomes immediately clear that Chesterton's wild pursuit of truth was only possible by his sincere commitment to humility born of wonder. He intuitively recognized that none of us are "self-made" men and that the deepest truths in life are received not created. If you don't have your hands on the Love Good edition of Orthodoxy yet, you're missing out! Make it happen today: https://lovegoodculture.com/product/orthodoxy/
"Thinking in isolation and with pride ends in being an idiot." These pointed words from G.K. Chesterton, a master of wit and common sense, are the starting point for our next 5 bonus episodes with Jimmy's old friend Jason Craig.

The life of the mind can be intimidating, especially if it's been awhile since you were in school. Yet, intellectual leisure is crucial to the art of being human. In fact, our intellect is what makes us most like God. This week, Jimmy sits down with Dr. Ryan Hanning to discuss how important it is to engage our minds and pursue the truth, especially in a culture marked by isolation and technocracy.
