G K Chesterton
Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London, England, in 1874. He went on to study art at the Slade School, and literature at University College in London. Chesterton wrote a great deal of poetry, as well as works of social and literary criticism. Among his most notable books are The Man Who Was Thursday, a metaphysical thriller, and The Everlasting Man, a history of humankind's spiritual progress. After Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922, he wrote mainly on religious topics such as Orthodoxy and Heretics. Chesterton is most known for creating the famous priest-detective character Father Brown, who first appeared in The Innocence of Father Brown. Chesterton died in 1936 at the age of 62.
Customer Reviews For "Orthodoxy"Write Your Own Review
This is an excellent book, and I recommend it for those who like warm and hearty apologetics like C.S. Lewis. It is more minimal than something like Lewis' "Surprised By Joy", but in that way is more accessible. I was able to read it in 2 days. It's interesting how some debates continue, and you will find much that has carried on since Chesterton wrote it. Chapter 2 and Chapter 6 are highlights. Also, it is very quotable, and that's always good to have in one's apologetic arsenal.
