Orthodoxy Summary

In the book's preface Chesterton states the purpose is to "attempt an explanation, not of whether the Christian faith can be believed, but of how he personally has come to believe it." In it, Chesterton presents an original view of Christian religion. He sees it as the answer to natural human needs, the "answer to a riddle" in his own words, and not simply as an arbitrary truth received from somewhere outside the boundaries of human experience.

The C.S.Lewis when the actual Lewis was just a boy. His insight and clever examples are awe-inspiring. This book is a must read for any fans of Mere Christianity.55
