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.
