Publishers Description
A Timeless Argument for Traditional Christianity
If you think orthodoxy is boring and predictable, think again. In this timeless classic, G. K. Chesterton, one of the literary giants of the twentieth century, presents a logical and personal reasoning for Christianity in model apologetic form. Gilbert Keith Chesterton was a self-described pagan at age 12 and totally agnostic by age 16. Yet, his spiritual journey ultimately led to a personal philosophy of orthodox, biblical Christianity. The account of his experiences, "Orthodoxy "bridges the centuries and appeals to today's readers who face the same challenges of materialism, self-centeredness, and progress.
"Hope means hoping when things are hopeless, or it is no virtue at all. And faith mean believing the incredible, or it is no virtue at all."
--G.K. Chesterton
A unique book, " Orthodoxy" addresses our faith struggles and how we communicate our faith to others. Through philosophy, poetry, reason and humor Chesterton leads us on a literary journey toward truth.
This edition includes a foreword by Philip Yancey who, like C. S. Lewis and other leading Christian writers, found this book to be pivotal his Christian experience. Yancey credits Chesterton with helping to revive and define his faith.

Reviews - What do customers think about Orthodoxy: The Classic Account of a Remarkable Christian Experience?

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.
