The Well & The Shallows

"We have come out of the shallows and the dry places to the one deep well; and the Truth is at the bottom of it." ~ G.K. Chesterton


About the Site:

Welcome to The Well and The Shallows.

The name is taken from a title of a G.K. Chesterton essay wherein he compared the world around him (the shallows) to the deep truths of his Christian faith (the well). This site seeks to continue in that grand Chestertonian spirit of comparing an often shallow culture to the deep, bottomless well of truth, goodness, and beauty that is found only in Christianity.
