C. S. Lewis counted the writings of G. K. Chesterton as the single most important influence that led to his own conversion to Christianity. Orthodoxy, a classic of Christian apologetics, started out as an answer to a challenge. Dared by a critic to publish his own cosmic philosophy, Chesterton wrote this spiritual autobiography. The result is a book reminiscent of Lewis's Mere Christianity- the account of a series of insights and discoveries that made sense to a skeptic and became a blueprint for millions of seekers. In Chesterton's words, "It is the purpose of the writer to attempt an explanation, not of whether the Christian faith can be believed, but of how he personally has come to believe it." Orthodoxy was written as a companion to Heretics, in which Chesterton outlines the popular philosophies of his day which stood in opposition not only to logic but also to what he believed was truth. Read by narrator Stephen Johnston, this affordable combination of print and MP3 is a new way to come to know and love the works of G. K. Chesterton.
