Full Product Description

“One of the top 10 Christian books of the twentieth century.”
—Christianity Today

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936) has been called “the ablest and most exuberant proponent of orthodox Christianity of his time.” One of the twentieth century’s most thoughtful authors, he greatly influenced countless Christian writers including C.S. Lewis and others. Described as one of 10 “indispensable spiritual classics” of the past 1500 years byPublishers Weekly, Chesterton’s Orthodoxy offers a unique explanation of the essentials of the Christian faith, and of his own journey from skepticism to belief.

“It is constantly assumed, especially in our Tolstoian tendencies, that when the lion lies down with the lamb the lion becomes lamb-like. . . . That is simply the lamb absorbing the lion instead of the lion eating the lamb. The real problem is—can the lion lie down with the lamb and still retain his royal ferocity? That is the problem the Church attempted; that is the miracle she achieved.”
—from Orthodoxy
