Description

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.show more

About G K Chesterton

GILBERT KEITH CHESTERTON (1874-1936) is the author of 100 books, including Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man, which led young atheist C.S. Lewis to become a Christian.

K.s Weekly.show more
