Publisher's Summary

G.K. Chesterton was a journalist, playwright, poet, biographer, novelist, essayist, literary commentator, editor, orator, artist, and theologian. Orthodoxy is his great theological work, which amounts to an apology for the Christian faith heretofore unequalled, excepting perhaps by C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity . A serious attack against Christianity by well-known newspaper editor Robert Blatchford in 1903 impelled Chesterton to seize the gauntlet of refutation. His reply was immensely successful and was the early formation of his convincing credo that is so brilliantly and cogently argued in Orthodoxy, a masterwork that was published just five years later.

Wonderful Narration, Important Work

I'd be lying if I said I can read Chesterton with ease. In truth, I listen to this book often, trying to follow the great GK Chesterton. His wit is unsurpassed. His confidence is inspiring.

- Charles Atkinson "Dept Q, Harry Hole... where are you?"

A treasure of Christian apologetics

Would you consider the audio edition of Orthodoxy to be better than the print version?

Audio for a quick and engaging flyover, print text for leisurely study and reflection.

What did you like best about this story?

Imaginative approach to Christian apologetics from a Catholic writer.

Which scene was your favorite?

Love Chesterton's perspective on fairy tales.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Probably not. Though charming and entertaining, it taxes the listener to THINK.

Any additional comments?

I think Protestant evangelicals ought to challenge themselves to a reading marathon of thoughtful Catholic writers of the last century - starting with Chesterton, Tolkien, and Nouwen (and I say that as an evangelical Protestant!).
