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.
