Publisher's Summary

Orthodoxy was named as one of Publishers Weekly’s 10 indispensable spiritual classics of the past 1500 years. It is the personal journal of one man’s search for understanding culminating in his conversion to Catholicism. Written with wisdom and wit, G.K. Chesterton captures the very nature of faith.

A life long re-reader

Chesterton managed to be both comprehensive as well as just plain magical. A must read for any human!

Truly a great work of apologetics and loved the narrator! Highly recommend this audible. Worth the purchase.

Christianity versus everything else

An analytical trip through the mind of the 'Apostle of Common Sense' as to why he chose Christianity over everything else. Not as easy to follow as 'Mere Christianity', by CS Lewis, but a good alternate method and perspective (and Catholic).

Chesterton at his level headed best <br />

Chesterton's quasi apologetic is as relevant and revelatory today as ever. In a milieu of disenchantment, disbelief and spiritual hedonism, Chesterton manages to whimsically yet poignantly wave it all away with his single greatest weapon, common sense. As a prelude to "The Everlasting Man", Orthodoxy serves as a great introduction to anyone of any faith who wants to break out of the confines of modern, claustrophobic philosophies spouting fatalism, determinism, materialism,agnosticism or any other ism, and find the joy of living in fairyland
