I have listen to these lectures multiple times during the last year-and-a-half. They have definitely lifted my spirits, and opened my mind to new insights about CS Lewis, his works, and God.

In this important book, G.K. Chesterton offers a remarkably perceptive analysis of social and moral issues, even more relevant today than in his own time. With a light, humorous tone but a deadly serious philosophy, he comments on errors in education, on feminism vs. true womanhood, on the importance of the child, and other issues, using incisive arguments against the trendsetters’ assaults on the common man and the family.

I love GK Chesterton, my favorite book by his is Orthodoxy. this book has a great deal of insight, phenomenal philosophy, and excellent comparisons. With that said It suffers from the same eclectic thinking that GK Chesterton is known for. it bounces from topic to topic quickly, and doesn't summarize it until the very end.
