Perhaps more than any other book that came from his prolific pen, Orthodoxy exemplifies G.K. Chesterton’s style, humor, and singular ability to present ancient truths from a new perspective.
Chesterton demolishes notions of a Christianity that is “heavy, humdrum, and safe,” and offers in its place a rollicking adventure filled with beauty, wonder, and peril. His apologetic is never strident or overbearing. There are no prooftexts or long-winded arguments. Instead, Chesterton uses common sense, everyday human experience, and simple but unassailable folk logic to build a case for a Christian view of the universe.
Whether you’re a diehard fan of Chesterton’s or waiting to be introduced to him, there is no finer edition of Orthodoxy to own.
