Orthodoxy (Version 2)


Read by Phil Chenevert

(4.8 stars; 35 reviews)

Orthodoxy is a book that has become a classic of Christian apologetics. 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 the 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.

I enjoy Phil Chenevert's reading of this book so much I play it over and over to relax enough to sleep. Each time I catch another CS Lewis gem. Phil is a master at the understated wry comment.
