Item Description...
C. S. Lewis, Dorothy Sayers, Evelyn Waugh: a generation of 20th century literary figures found or rediscovered faith through the writings of G. K. Chesterton. In his most enduring work, Orthodoxy, Chesterton argues that the drama and mystery of Christianity are sanity?and that the naturalistic machinations of atheism are madness.

Publishers Description
Now with a new foreword by Charles Colson.Antiquated. Unimaginative. Repressive. We've all heard these common reactions to orthodox Christian beliefs. Even Christians themselves are guilty of the tendency to discard historic Christianity. As Charles Colson writes in the foreword, "Evangelicals, despite their professed belief in the Bible, have not been exempt from the influence of the postmodern spirit."This spirit is averse to Truth and the obedience that follows. And people today, as in Chesterton's day, continue to look anywhere but heavenward for something to believe in.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Chesterton on Orthodoxy  Mar 31, 2010
Definitely a book with British language and locations. Chesterton grants us a look at his journey from atheism to believer and has had a significant impact on others of like disbelief in the foundational Christian meaning for both life now and for eternal joy later. While his writing was for the past generation, it lives today in those whos hearts and minds it has impacted.
Poor Intro for a Classic  Oct 6, 2009
Chesterton is a classic, who deserves the best in terms of publication and commentary, including footnotes and a proper introduction. The Moody Classics printing has no footnotes, and the editors have chosen to use an introduction by Charles Colson, which does not do justice to Chesterton's prose or to his intellect and originality. The book is probably essential, certainly as much as any book can be said to be essential, especially for readers who want to consider and reconsider Christian faith and Christian culture, from the point of view of a brilliant, wonderously informed, careful and passionate Christian writer, whose love of God and men and women, and good writing, and decency and reason, and life and creation, is palpable on every page.
Orthodoxy  Jul 6, 2009
I'll be honest and say that a lot of Christian books I have read have been dull or void of passion. This book is neither. I have read a few G.K. Chesterton books and in my opinion this is my favorite of his. This book displays the wonder and mystical side of Christianity through Chesterton's eyes and can get very deep philosophically and also very witty. It has some big words yet most audiences will be able to comprehend what he is saying without getting lost. Its hard for me to clealy explain the whole synopsis but this is very good book and considering the price, you won't lose out by taking a chance and picking up a copy of your own.
C.S. Lewis with more wit and humor  Jun 24, 2009
Lewis is one of my all-time favorite authors and thinkers. So, when I read in his autobiography the impact that Chesterton had on him, I had to pick up a copy of one of his books. I chose this one, and what an introduction it was. It is a wonderful thing to find a new author that you enjoy so immensely.

As the title of my review intimates, Chesterton has all of the intelligence and keenness of mind of Lewis, but with the added bonus of a boundless, cheery sense of humor (not to say, of course, that Lewis does not have a good sense of humor in his own rights). If you read this book without smiling to yourself dozens of times, you are missing something. Chesterton's jabs at his contemporaries, as well as his predecessors, in philosophical thought are at once humorous and severe, all without the slightest hint of mean-spiritedness; a tribute to his sense of paradox.

My one complaint about this edition is the endless typographical errors contained in its pages. I find it appalling that a publishing house would send to print something with so many glaring errors. After the first couple, I thought it to be no big deal. But after the first ten I became a bit put off. If you can overlook the typos, then this edition will suit you just fine. And the errors can in no way detract from wealth of prose, candor, analogy, and humor found within this gem of a book.
