As always with Chesterton, there is in this analysis something (as he said of Blake) "very plain and emphatic". He sees in Christianity a rare blending of philosophy and mythology, or reason and story, which satisfies both the mind and the heart. On both levels it rings true. As he puts it, "in answer to the historical query of why it was accepted, and is accepted, I answer for millions of others in my reply; because it fits the lock; because it is like life". Here, as so often in Chesterton, we sense a lived, awakened faith. All that he himself writes derives from a keen intellect guided by the heart's own knowledge. --Doug Thorpe --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Again this is not easy reading. You have to learn the meanings of his writing. It is sometimes satirical in nature and sometimes forthright. Read morePublished 7 months ago by MCH
Great history and perspective of Christianity in history.
Christians and non-Christians alike will enjoy this history of man, I certainly did.
Really great book, but don't buy the paperback edition published by Wilder. It appears to have been produced using character recognition with zero editing. Read morePublished 9 months ago by S SMITH
I like much of his stuff but having Mary instead of Jesus as your daily person of contemplation is Idolatry as described in scripture.Published 12 months ago by Ronald Joseph Lorette
Great detail by Chesterton, but in spite of that, consoling that so great a mind comes to the conclusions he does. We Catholics have a story to tell and it is tested and true. .Published 18 months ago by R. Leitch
Chesterton has a masterpiece here, a rare examination of the humanity of history. Filled with Chesterton's token wit, sarcasm, and expertise. Read morePublished on March 19 2011 by Sam Farthing
