Orthodoxy by GK Chesterton

Orthodoxy by GK Chesterton

While the title may make you think this to be a dry tome about the inner workings of Christian doctrine, the truth could hardly be further. In it you are made to think of what is necessarily true vs what is possibly true. Between what we can imagine to be true vs what we cannot imagine not being true. In style it reads more like Alice in Wonderland than a doctrinal work, but it makes you think again. Everything is presented from a fresh perspective. Chesterton is a first-rate philosopher who thinks and writes in fanciful language rather than the standard language of philosophers. Thus he holds your attention more easily and keeps your brain working more readily.

He provides a viewpoint I have not seen from other authors. It is refreshing, a delight to read, and a welcome addition to the discussion of right (orthodox) belief.

4 stars. Highly recommended.
