    A serious attack against Christianity by well-known newspaper editor Robert Blatchford in 1903 impelled Chesterton to seize the gauntlet of refutation. His reply was immensely successful and was the early formation of his convincing credo that is so brilliantly and cogently argued in Orthodoxy, a masterwork that was published just five years later.

    Story

    This is a book that has been recommended you me many times over the years. I finally broke down and listened to it expecting that I would fall in love with it quickly. Sadly I found I had to force myself to finish. Chesterton is first and foremost a journalist, very opinioned and clever but he is also a horrible philosopher. I am pretty sure he had never read most of the people he criticized as he misrepresents many of the things they said, and uses circular logic to defend his own position. He is great if you want to enjoy his clever wit, but don’t confuse this with real philosophy.
