Chesterton free download Orthodoxy Written GK Chesterton 'Orthodoxy' address foremost one main problem How can we contrive to be at once astonished at the world and yet at home in it Chesterton writes I wish to set forth my faith as particularly answering this double spiritual need the need for that mixture of the familiar and the unfamiliar which Christendom has rightly named romanceChesterton likens orthodox Christianity to a man who set out in a boat from England and was uite excited. It 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 position that Christianity has achieved some miraculous balance solved some insolvable paradox Just what sort of paradox I m not entirely sure He throws around labels like pessimist optimist anarchist agnostic atheist anti Christian Modernist rationalist mild rationalist pagan Christian Christian Scientist and uite many I assure you without ever deigning so much as to provide even rough definitions of what he means His argument is that Christianity leads to sanity and anyone who argues otherwise is a damn though thankfully not a damned fool Perhaps after all it is Christianity that is sane and all its critics that are mad 166But my favourite line has to be Our grandmothers were uite right when they said that Tom Paine and the free thinkers unsettled the mind They do They unsettled mine horribly 154 And it s those blasted free thinkers according to Chesterton who perpetrated this insidious and invidious idea that life itself is full of problems and uncertainty For shame It is only within the Christian context that one can find a worry free and jolly existence For you see Christianity solves all of life s mysterious contradictions for it is itself one giant and glorified contradiction And just how does Christianity function thus Here it is straight from the horse s mouth All that I am urging here can be expressed by saying that Christianity sought to keep two colours co existent but pure It is not a mixture like russet or purple it is rather like a shot silk for a shot silk is always at right angles and is in the pattern of the cross 174 Now why didn t I think of that

Chesterton free download Orthodoxy On 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 Drawing on such figures as Fr Angelico George Bernard Shaw and St Paul to make his points Chesterton argues that submission to ecclesiastical authority is the way to achieve a good and balanced lifePublic Domain P2011 Tanto. A 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 asserts that the only fitting way for us to consider the world is with a sense of wonder Thus the world of fairy tales with its magic and mystery is closer to reality than the most naturalistic world described by science I agree I need to think about this some Then rather than focusing on the limitations placed on us in the world we should consider the greatness of the world that has been given to us with this whole world at our disposal is it not natural that there should be a limit the very boundaries of which ensure that we can dance and play on the top of the hill without the worry of falling off the cliff boundaries which allow us to live most fully and without fearOn another theme he asserts that the problem with contemporary literature is that it is often centred around extraordinary strange protagonists who do even strange things and so the reader finds them uninteresting because they cannot relate to them The classics he counters wrote about ordinary people who did extraordinary things and so they are interesting and the reader can relate The same thought had occurred to me when bored with a contemporary novel why does the protagonist have to be so strange And the contemporary stories I love I now realise are often based on an ordinary character who has the courage to do something extraordinary This would be worth exploring further an article perhaps And I loved the last chapters when he writes with wonder of the person of Jesus shown in the Gospels a God who is not afraid to let his tears be seen and sometimes his anger and yet who has a certain shyness and reserve that gives him an intriguing attractive depth I ve often thought the sameAnd so many ideas that I ll need to consider slowly
