Summary

Now with a new foreword by Charles Colson. Antiquated. Unimaginative. Repressive. We've all heard these common reactions to orthodox Christian beliefs. Even Christians themselves are guilty of the tendency to discard historic Christianity. As Charles Colson writes in the foreword, "Evangelicals, despite their professed belief in the Bible, have not been exempt from the influence of the postmodern spirit." This spirit is averse to Truth and the obedience that follows. And people today, as in Chesterton's day, continue to look anywhere but heavenward for something to believe in.

Author Biography

GILBERT KEITH CHESTERTON (1874-1936) is the author of a hundred books, including Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man which led young atheist C.S. Lewis to become a Christian. He is probably best known for his series about the priest-detective Father Brown and was also known as a poet and a playwright. In spite of his literary accomplishments, he primarily considered himself a journalist, writing over 4,000 newspaper essays for papers such as Illustrated London News and Daily News, as well as his own G. K.’s Weekly.
