Description

Orthodoxy

by Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Orthodoxy is a companion book for Chesterton's Heretics. In this volume, considered a classic example of Christian apologetic writing, Chesterton answers his detractors by providing his own philosophy for living a Christian life. By necessity, he says, the book must begin with how he came to believe and follow the development of his own faith. Only then could his words seem sincere. Christianity, as Chesterton views it, is the perfect answer to every one of humanity's great questions. Christians and spiritual seekers will find Chesterton's ruminations an engaging and interesting read.

About Chesterton:

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (29 May 1874 - 14 June 1936) was one of the most influential English writers of the 20th century. His prolific and diverse output included journalism, philosophy, poetry, biography, Christian apologetics, fantasy and detective fiction. Chesterton has been called the "prince of paradox." Time magazine, in a review of a biography of Chesterton, observed of his writing style: "Whenever possible Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, allegories—first carefully turning them inside out." For example, Chesterton wrote the following: Thieves respect property. They merely wish the property to become their property that they may more perfectly respect it. Chesterton is well known for his reasoned apologetics and even those who disagree with him have recognized the universal appeal of such works as Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man. Chesterton, as political thinker, cast aspersions on both Liberalism and Conservatism, saying: The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected. Chesterton routinely referred to himself as an "orthodox" Christian, and came to identify such a position with Catholicism more and more, eventually converting to Roman Catholicism. George Bernard Shaw, Chesterton's "friendly enemy" according to Time, said of him, "He was a man of colossal genius".
