Item description for Orthodoxy (Audio Book) by G. K. Chesterton & Dale Ahlquist...

It's been 100 years since this dazzling work was first published. Written in 1908 when G.K. Chesterton was only thirty-four years old, Orthodoxy tells, in his inimitable soaring prose, of his earth-shaking discovery that orthodoxy is the only satisfactory answer to the perplexing riddle of the universe. C.S. Lewis and many other emerging Christian thinkers have found this book a pivotal step in their adoption of a credible Christian faith. Orthodoxy is perhaps the most outstanding example of the originality of Chesterton's style and the brilliance of his thought. In this audio book, Dale Ahlquist, the popular host of EWTN's G.K. Chesterton: The Apostle of Common Sense, provides an introduction as well as a rousing reading of the text. Don't miss this chance to absorb the genius that is Chesterton!

Reviews - What do customers think about Orthodoxy (Audio Book)?

C. S. Lewis source book  Apr 14, 2010
G. K. Chesterton is quoted by many including C. S. Lewis and Ravi Zacharias. This is the book that is the source of many of the quotes. It provides the thinking of G.K. Chesterton as he transitioned from being an agnostic (or even atheist)to embracing christian orthodoxy. He got to that point from reading the atheist writers and their objections to christianity. He uses logic to prove that logic alone cannot solve many theological issues! If you were placed in an asylum for being crazy, how could you prove that you were sane?
Pure Brilliance  Feb 19, 2010
This book is pure brilliance. I only recently came across Chesterton as something more than a name I had heard. This is the first book by him that I have read, and I have to express awe and great pleasure with it. Chesterton has this wonderfully peculiar way of presenting a successive argument (in a light, almost flippant manner) that gains strength and cogency as it unfolds. Peppered within his arguments are statements that may often seem zany and funny at first, but that with more thought and concentration grow strikingly and reveal themselves to be potent catalysts for challenging long-held assumptions. Chesterton in this book puts old truths in new perspective. He succeeds admirably, and somewhat paradoxically, at turning conventional wisdom on its head and yet strengthening the very idea of convention in the process. We're living today in an age of waning traditional influences kind of like the one in which this book was written. But I invite skeptics of tradition and religion to give this book a try. They might find that Oliver Wendell Holmes's statement - about a mind never regaining its original dimensions once stretched by a new idea - applies to much of this book in ways they might not expect...or find comfortable.
Great read - great author  Feb 5, 2010
Mr. Chesterton does it again. Great read with many insights and several surprises. I highly recommend for any Christian who seeks a higher understanding and unique insights.
A must read for anyone trying to understand the world today!  Jan 17, 2010
One of the most important books written, brilliant in scope and understanding of faith.

There are many better reviews here than I can write, I just wanted to add my 5 stars, if I could give it 10 I world!
A Wonderful Read  Jan 6, 2010
I actually have yet to read this book, but I bought a copy for my husband and one for his brother as well this Christmas. My husband (a recent graduate from a Christian college, now doing grad studies) couldn't put it down and kept reading quotes to me from the book. Within a week my brother-in-law (a Bible student in college) had read the book twice and said it was even better the second time through! Now they are both wanting to read more of Chesterton's work! I will have to read it soon!
