Entertaining, humorous, intelligent, and full of surprises: Portly, fun loving, witty G.K. Chesterton decided to write this book as a companion volume to his book HERETICS. Since HERETICS had criticised contemporary philosophies, ORTHODOXY was written to present an alternative viewpoint, and is therefore both affirmative in tone and autobiographical in many places.

A sampling of his chapter titles gives some idea of Chestertons sense of fun as well as his unusual approach to the matter of Christianity. Chapter one is In Defense of Everything Else (one pictures Chesterton with a whimsical, impish smile on his face as he wrote this). There are also chapters on The Suicide of Thought, The Ethics of Elfland (a really superb chapter), The Maniac, and The Paradoxes of Christianity.

In this easily readable book, Chesterton shows that theological reflections and philosophical ruminations need be neither boring nor incomprehensible. This is jolly good fun to read, being both funny and intellectually stimulating. Highly recommended.
