Summary:
If G.K. Chesterton's Orthodoxy is, as he called it, a "slovenly autobiography," then we need more slobs in the world. In his classic Orthodoxy, Chesterton argues that people in western society need a life of "practical romance, the combination of something that is strange with something that is secure.

Abstract:

If G.K. Chesterton's Orthodoxy is, as he called it, a "slovenly autobiography," then we need more slobs in the world. In his classic Orthodoxy, Chesterton argues that people in western society need a life of "practical romance, the combination of something that is strange with something that is secure. We need so to view the world as to combine an idea of wonder and an idea of welcome." Chesterton's Orthodoxy does well in combining the wonder with the welcome, making Christian apologetics both compelling and delightful.
