Orthodoxy by G. K. Chesterton. Of the numerous works that Chesterton wrote, the most scintillating synthesis of his philosophy and deeply religious faith was manifested in his masterpiece, Orthodoxy, written when he was only thirty-four and which tells, in his inimitable, soaring prose, of his earth-shaking discovery that orthodoxy is the only satisfactory answer to the perplexing riddle of the universe. Orthodoxy is perhaps the most outstanding example of the originality of his style and the brilliance of his thought. Chesterton states his purpose in Orthodoxy is to 'attempt an explanation, not of whether the Christian faith can be believed, but of how he personally has come to believe it'. This book has become a classic of Christian apologetics.
