Orthodoxy is one of G.K. Chesterton's seminal works, a stunning apologetic of Christianity leveled at the rational, scientific culture of 20th century Britain. According to Chesterton, the purpose of Orthodoxy is to "attempt an explanation, not of whether the Christian faith can be believed, but of how he personally has come to believe it." With witty anecdotes and bulletproof logic, Chesterton lays out a neat and tidy defense of Christianity. The book is simultaneously immensely entertaining and packed with wisdom and truth. Up until now there has not been a standalone print edition that is well-designed and readily available. This ItB Classics edition features the public domain text of Orthodoxy, with new typesetting and a brand-new interior. Spacious margins make the book perfect for study notes and academic use. Orthodoxy is a part of the ItB Press "Classics" series.
