The winsome, bombastic wisdom of Orthodoxy
on October 11, 2016
Do NOT read this book if you are not ready to re-read a third of the sentences, as the words are sometimes long, laborious, and archaic. This is a fault of our age, however, and the points are best made in the voice of Chesterton himself. Bear this burden well, however, and you will be blessed.
Chesterton has a way of inverting and reversing commonly-held viewpoints and exposing their failings. Christianity is God becoming man so that He as a perfect man can bear the punishment of us all. How absurd, and yet it is true.
