5.0 out of 5 stars How does he do it? June 10, 2013
By S Bomb
Format:Kindle Edition
Out of everything that I have ever read, this is the book that I have recommended to the most people. My friends and roommates hated me when I read it because I would continuously stop and read passages out loud to them. There was never a dull moment in the entire thing.

I think the reason that this writing is so powerful is that he makes it so personal, without moving away from logical or reasonable arguments. He sets up the extended metaphor of an explorer that sets out to find new lands, but ends up "discovering" England, where people have been for thousands of years. He is the explorer, telling the tale of his personal search for truth, and Orthodox Christianity is the new land, having already been established thousands of years in the past.

I went to pull a quote from the book for a talk that I was working on, got sidetracked, and found myself two hours later having reread a huge portion of it over again.

Please read this. If you don't like it I will let you punch me in the face as hard as you want.

This slender little book is a Chesterton classic, a good starting point for those who don't know Chesterton well. Don't be put off by the dry-sounding title,as the book is witty, insightful, and quotable. This is the kind of book you will want to own in print, as there are so many underlinable sentences. It is also a book you will want to re-read every few years, just for the experience that C. S. Lewis called "refreshment of the spirit."

From the first page onward, nothing but truth pouring off of every paragraph. Something so hard to explain, made easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Orthodoxy by GK Chesterton February 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Chesterton and will be reading more of his works. He is very witty, but not for the sake of wit. His purpose was to share how he found orthodoxy to be true, and in so doing, shares that which is true. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Christian worldview.

4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good read! March 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
i don't necessarily align myself with chesterton, theologically, but do appreciate reading what he has to say on life. i do think it's important to read his works, even if you disagree. it's not hard to read what he has to say--it's an enjoyable and fairly easy read! highly recommend this and his other classics.

Finished this one today. This is another one that I have had to take slowly. The genius of G.K. Chesterton is well noted, but this the first of his writing that I have ever had the chance to read. This is widely considered to be one of his two greatest works, and I can see why. The book is a defense of the doctrine of the church, commonly referred to as The Apostles' Creed. Written to overcome agnostic, humanist, and scientific arguments against the doctrine. Using paradoxes, comparisons, history, and facts, Chesterton defends the point that the Creed is not dull, dark and restrictive, but is in fact interesting, bright and liberating. His intellect is so far ahead of an average guy like me, that I had to read this slowly, and will need to read it again. If you're not a regular reader, you may not want to start with this one.
