(Moody Classics)

by G.K. Chesterton

In Ortho­doxy, G.K. Chesterton’s most endur­ing work, Chester­ton argues that the dra­ma and mys­tery of Chris­tian­i­ty are san­i­ty and that the nat­u­ral­is­tic machi­na­tions of athe­ism are madness.

We’ve all heard com­mon reac­tions to ortho­dox Chris­t­ian belief: Anti­quat­ed. Unimag­i­na­tive. Repres­sive. Even Chris­tians them­selves are guilty of dis­card­ing. As Charles Col­son writes in the for­ward, Evan­gel­i­cals, despite their pro­fessed belief in the Bible, have not been exempt from the influ­ence of the post­mod­ern spirit.”

This post­mod­ern spir­it is averse to Truth and the obe­di­ence that fol­lows. Peo­ple today, as in Chester­ton’s day, con­tin­ue to look any­where but heav­en­ward for some­thing to believe in.

Chester­ton tells us why we sim­ply must look heav­en­ward, and why we’ll be glad we did.
