It’s been 100 years since this dazzling work was first published. Written in 1908 when G.K. Chesterton was only thirty-four years old, Orthodoxy 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. C.S. Lewis and many other emerging Christian thinkers have found this book a pivotal step in their adoption of a credible Christian faith. Orthodoxy is perhaps the most outstanding example of the originality of Chesterton’s style and the brilliance of his thought.
In this audio book, Dale Ahlquist, the popular host of EWTN’s G.K. Chesterton: The Apostle of Common Sense, provides an introduction as well as a rousing reading of the text. Don’t miss this chance to absorb the genius that is Chesterton!
Dale Ahlquist is the president of the American Chesterton Society and EWTN host. He is the bestselling author of G.K. Chesterton: The Apostle of Common Sense and Common Sense 101.
