Review: Orthodoxy

Orthodoxy
Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you pay attention, this book will change your life.

This is, simply put, one of the most amazing and underrated books ever written. In it, Chesterton traces out his own intellectual journey from childhood through to the time he wrote the book, detailing his movement from agnosticism to Christianity. Rather than giving us a dry, self-important autobiography, however, Chesterton instead leads us through his thought processes, showing us the means by which he reached the conclusions he reached, and giving us the opportunity to reach the same. The result is a great work of Christian apologetics and a solid set of arguments against the great assumptions of modernism and materialism.

The book is truly engaging and delightful to read. Chesterton’s arguments are clear, challenging, and always interesting, even when you disagree. His characteristic wit is sprinkled on every page.

I recommend this book for everyone.
