Orthodoxy is one of the greatest works in the English language, as much for its brilliant turn-of-phrase as for the profound truths that it unveils about what it means to be human. In Orthodoxy, Chesterton shares about the genesis of his Christian faith, and how it eventually came to fruition through the joys and pains of his extraordinary life.
G.K.Chesterton was a man who never hesitated to sit down with the most renowned atheists of his time, such as fellow writers George Bernard Shaw and H.G. Wells. Even in the most public of debates and without much time passing, he would have everyone roaring in a fit of laughter. He had a way of presenting eternal truth with such humanity, with such joy, that it became almost irresistible for the one on the other end of the dialogue.
