About this title:

Synopsis:

In Orthodoxy, G.K. Chesterton’s most enduring work, Chesterton argues that the drama and mystery of Christianity are sanity and that the naturalistic machinations of atheism are madness.

We've all heard common reactions to orthodox Christian belief: Antiquated. Unimaginative. Repressive. Even Christians themselves are guilty of discarding. As Charles Colson writes in the forward, "Evangelicals, despite their professed belief in the Bible, have not been exempt from the influence of the postmodern spirit."

This postmodern spirit is averse to Truth and the obedience that follows. People today, as in Chesterton's day, continue to look anywhere but heavenward for something to believe in.

Chesterton tells us why we simply must look heavenward, and why we’ll be glad we did.

Review: If G.K. Chesterton's Orthodoxy: The Romance of Faith is, as he called it, a "slovenly autobiography," then we need more slobs in the world. This quirky, slender book describes how Chesterton came to view orthodox Catholic Christianity as the way to satisfy his personal emotional needs, in a way that would also allow him to live happily in society. Chesterton argues that people in western society need a life of "practical romance, the combination of something that is strange with something that is secure. We need so to view the world as to combine an idea of wonder and an idea of welcome." Drawing on such figures as Fra Angelico, George Bernard Shaw, and St. Paul to make his points, Chesterton argues that submission to ecclesiastical authority is the way to achieve a good and balanced life. The whole book is written in a style that is as majestic and down-to-earth as C.S. Lewis at his best. The final chapter, called "Authority and the Adventurer," is especially persuasive. It's hard to imagine a reader who will not close the book believing, at least for the moment, that the Church will make you free. --Michael Joseph Gross
