Item description for Orthodoxy by G. K. Chesterton & Philip Yancey...

The English author recounts his own spiritual journey, discusses the Apostles' Creed and the doctrines of mystery and free will, and provides a justification for political action.

Publishers Description

Chesterton's timeless exploration of the essentials of Christian faith and of his pilgrimage to belief (more than 750,000 copies sold in the Image edition) is now reissued with an incisive Introduction by bestselling author Philip Yancey.
For G.K. Chesterton, orthodoxy carries us into the land of romance, right action, and revolution. In "Orthodoxy," a classic in religious autobiography, he tells of his pilgrimage there by way of the doctrines of Christianity set out in the Apostles' Creed.
Where science seeks to explain all things in terms of calculation and necessary law, Chesterton argues on behalf of the Christian doctrines of mystery and free will. Sanity, he says, belongs to the poet who accepts the romance and drama of these beliefs rather than to the logician who does not. This sanity is not static. It does not mean merely learning the right doctrines and then lapsing into a refined meditation on them. Chesterton dismisses such an inactive belief as "the greatest disaster of the nineteenth century." For him, right thinking is a waste without right action.
For Chesterton the populist, political ction often spells revolution. He discovers in the doctrines of original sin and the divinity of Christ ever-present seedbeds of revolt in the face of the tyrannies of money and power.

Orthodoxy - Still Relevant Today  Mar 20, 2007
"Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions."
Awesome book!  Jan 9, 2007
I read this book for my honors class as an alternative option for those of us who had already read Mere Christianity. Chesterton is an entertaining as well as insightful reader. I don't agree with all of his ideas but his examples for how he reached his conclusions are fun and fairly logical from his point of view. I strongly reccomend this book to anyone exploring the ideas of Christianity from within a Christian background.
His best work  Jan 3, 2007
Although Chesterton humbly passes this book off as merely an answer to questions posed to him during his life, it is an incredible read. I have read some parts of it numerous times and the whole book more than once. This is one of those gems that you will read with a pen in hand, scribbling in notes and underlines like you were back in college again.
An Exhilarating Read  Oct 11, 2006
One of the best books I have read.

Chesterton wrote a masterpiece. He thought about things in unique ways which makes his writing extremely insightful. And furthermore, his writing is exciting. It goes beyond simple communication to conveyance of truth--a rare gift.
The Rebuttle to Modern Philosophy  Jul 17, 2006
In this book, one of the great writers of the last century, writes his defense of the philosophy of Historical Christianity. He goes to great lengths to debate the views of his contemporaries (H.G. Wells, Robert Bernard Shaw) and the influences on his contemporaries (specifically Nietzsche). Chesterton can seem to go off topic at times (it is said he never wrote rough drafts - what we read is his thought process un-edited), but his insights and are purely astounding and worth going down those rabbit trails. I won't dare go into his arguments, as I'm sure other reviews have done that sufficiently, plus I'm not smart enough or have have enough time to do them justice. Read the book for yourself. Chesterton is an absolute delight to read. It's a shame that a man like G.K. Chesterton has been forgotten, while the men whom he often debated have so heavily influenced our culture. We would do well to bring the clarity of thought and ideas of Chesterton back into the public forum. For a Christian who wishes to intellectually defend his faith (as opposed to the blind faith we are often accused of), this book is indispensible.
