Product Description

Orthodoxy as author G.K. Chesterton employs the term here, means "right opinion." In this, the masterpiece of his brilliant literary career, he applies the concept of correct reasoning to his acceptance of Christian faith. Written in a dawn-to-earth and familiar style, this book nevertheless presents formal, scholarly arguments. Paradox and contradiction, Chesterton maintains, do not constitute barriers to belief; imagination and intuition are as relevant to the process of thought and understanding as logic and rationality. He defines his insights with thought-provoking analogies, personal anecdotes, and engaging humor, making this century-old book a work of enduring charm and persuasion. Unabridged republication of the classic 1908 edition. Paperback, 154 pages. Dover Publications.

Publisher's Description

In his scintillating prose, one of the 20th century's great writers explains the values and ideas that constitute the foundation of Christianity. G. K. Chesterton adopts an informal style in his scholarly arguments in favor of faith as an affirmation of human freedom. He elaborates on his assertions through analogy, imagery, and personal anecdotes, with ample doses of his characteristic humor. Although written and published nearly a century ago, Chesterton's reasoning and observations appear as fresh and inspired today as they must have seemed to his contemporaries.

    Chesterton's reasoning in "Orthodoxy" is still relevant today as it was back in his time. This book is a must read as is the book right before this one: Heretics.

    This book provide a lot of food for thought. My husband and I have read the book and have been viewing the EWTN "The Common Sense Apostle" - Chesterton. Orthodoxy is a wonderful presentation and just helps one to see things in a fresh way even though it was first written sometime ago. We got original version.

    Wow, it's about time GK Chesterton becomes 'rediscovered' by Christians. Reading Chesterton is like reading a little more hard-edged CS Lewis. For pastors and preachers in the Evangelical world don't let Chesterton's Roman Catholicism turn you away. Here is a man who knows how to think Christianly. It falls short of the 5 star only because some will definitely find his style hard to read. Not to mention this is a very affordable edition.
