Publisher Description:

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936) has been called "the ablest and most exuberant proponent of orthodox Christianity of his time." One of the twentieth century’s most thoughtful authors, he greatly influenced countless Christian writers including C.S. Lewis and others. Described as one of 10 “indispensable spiritual classics” of the past 1500 years byPublishers Weekly, Chesterton’s Orthodoxy offers a unique explanation of the essentials of the Christian faith, and of his own journey from skepticism to belief.

"It is constantly assumed, especially in our Tolstoian tendencies, that when the lion lies down with the lamb the lion becomes lamb-like. . . . That is simply the lamb absorbing the lion instead of the lion eating the lamb. The real problem is—can the lion lie down with the lamb and still retain his royal ferocity? That is the problem the Church attempted; that is the miracle she achieved."

    It goes without saying, that G. K. Chesterton was a genius, and his books are a must have for any Christian who is seeking deeper insight into his or her beliefs. The quality of the binding and the attractive cover makes this series of books a beautiful addition to any library.

    An amazing book! Although it is not an "easy-read" (very often I could only read a few paragraphs at a time before my mind needed a break), it is a tremendous examination of Christianity. The story of Chesterton's progression from agnosticism to Christianity will challenge the minds of both skeptics AND Christians. If you want to view orthodox Christianity in a fresh light against the same old tired criticisms that have been around for centuries, you MUST read this book.
