One of the most brilliant books of apologetics in English, Chesterton wrote Orthodoxy in 1908 in response to a challenge from one of his readers to state his creed.
The result is early Chesterton at his best: sparkling paradoxes, breathtaking wordplay, trenchant argument and blinding logic.
Chesterton employs his own discovery of orthodox Christianity in order to defend its beauty and its sanity against modern secular schools of philosophy.
The book manages to intellectually challenge the reader, while still maintaining a child-like sense of awe.
