    Kindle Orthodoxy eBook Ì Ï nessville.me orthodoxy book, Orthodoxy PDFEPUBIt is with extreme reluctance that I condemn this work as worthless The person who recommended it to me is one whose opinion and learning I respect greatlyChesterton seems to think although I'm not entirely sure of anything in this book inasmuch as the author refuses to write in anything but figurative language and metaphor In fact the term mixed metaphor is an entirely inappropriate descriptor One would need to use exponents to keep track of the metaphors and smilies that he heaps upon one another in the attempt to explain his pos

    Kindle Orthodoxy eBook Ì Ï nessville.me orthodoxy book, Orthodoxy PDFEPUBThis is an absolute must for either Catholics or Protestants as Chesterton addresses an aspect of mere Christianity it's profound and monumental common sensensicalness in a way that sparkles with wit humor and intellectual derring doIncidentally if you set yourself to reading it out loud you will put yourself through a training in diction and oral expression that far surpasses anything you could ever hire

    Kindle Orthodoxy eBook Ì Ï nessville.me orthodoxy book, Orthodoxy PDFEPUBA complex work of great scope that I will need to read a few times Chesterton uses metaphors to explain the meaning of his theses and the reader must work to comprehend what they signify on different levels I find it amazing that this was first published in 1908 Its ideas refer to but are so independent from the philosophies of that time as though it were written today looking back on them rather than their contemporaryI'll not write a comprehensive review but just wish to list some of the things that particularly impressed me on first reading Chesterton a

    Kindle Orthodoxy eBook Ì Ï nessville.me orthodoxy book, Orthodoxy PDFEPUBWhen I first started reading this book I was dumbfounded and I uickly sensed my vulnerability I’m used to reading challenging authors who work hard to drop kick your old paradigms and hold you teeth down to the grinding concrete they’re speeding recklessly over in pursuit of truth I can sense when an author is sliding towards sensationalism and theatrics in his attempt to convince readers that their life is a sham and essentially a waste of time I even like it when authors do that because I become so desensitized to it that much of authors’ fervent exhortation comes across my ‘reader’s block’ as hardly a compunctive tickle But Chesterton called by Philip Yancey the ‘prophet of mirth’ for his playful manner plays cat and mouse with his audience just about as well as I’ve ever experienced He really spooked
