K.</strong> <strong><span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="Chesterton" data-scaytid="1">Chesterton</span></strong></p> <p><font size="2">Gilbert Keith <span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="Chesterton" data-scaytid="3">Chesterton</span> is one of the most celebrated and reverently esteemed figures in modern literature. He was a phenomenally prolific writer. After achieving early success as an illustrator, he subsequently established his fame as a playwright, novelist, poet, literary commentator, pamphleteer, essayist, lecturer, apologist, and editor. The depth and range of his work are astounding.</font></p> <p><font size="2">A pagan at only 12 and totally agnostic by 16, <span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="Chesterton" data-scaytid="5">Chesterton</span> had the remarkable experience of developing a personal, positive philosophy that turned out to be orthodox Christianity. <i>Orthodoxy, </i>his account of it all, has not lost its force as a timeless argument for the simple plausibility of traditional Christianity. <span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="C.S" data-scaytid="9">C.S</span>. Lewis and many other emerging Christian thinkers have found this book a pivotal step in their adoption of a credible Christian faith. This intellectual and spiritual autobiography of the leading 20th century essayist combines simplicity with subtlety in a model apologetic that appeals to today&#39;s generations of readers who face the same materialism and <span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="antisupernaturalism" data-scaytid="11">antisupernaturalism</span> as did the &quot;man at war with his times.&quot;</font></p> <p><font size="2">Of the numerous works that <span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="Chesterton" data-scaytid="7">Chesterton</span> wrote, the most scintillating synthesis of his philosophy and deeply religious faith was manifested in his masterpiece, <i>Orthodoxy, </i>written when he was only thirty-four and which tells, in his inimitable, soaring prose, of his earth-shaking discovery that orthodoxy is the only satisfactory answer to the perplexing riddle of the universe. <i>Orthodoxy </i>is perhaps the most outstanding example of the originality of his style and the brilliance of his thought.</font></p> <blockquote dir="ltr" style="margin-right: 0px"> <p><font size="2">&quot;There has never been a more articulate champion of classic Christian orthodoxy, virtue, and decency than this rotund jouster whose words were his weapons.&quot;</font><br /> <font size="2"><b>- Christianity Today</b></font></p> </blockquote> <p><br /> <font size="2"><b>Table of Contents:</b></font></p> <p>Preface<br /> A Note on the Text</p> <p>Introduction in <span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="Defence" data-scaytid="17">Defence</span> of Everything Else<br /> The Maniac<br /> The Suicide of Thought<br /> The Ethics of <span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="Elfland" data-scaytid="19">Elfland</span><br /> The Flag of the World<br /> The Paradoxes of Christianity<br /> The Eternal Revolution<br /> The Romance of Orthodoxy<br /> Authority and the Adventurer</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 814 Orthodoxy-lg.jpg Ignatius Press 1 97 Paperback 168 0 1908 N/A 1 350 Orthodoxy-350sm.jpg [empty string] Orthodoxy [empty string] 11.95 9.56 5.25
