Orthodoxy was named as one of Publishers Weekly’s 10 indispensable spiritual classics of the past 1500 years.

Chesterton at his level headed best <br />

Chesterton's quasi apologetic is as relevant and revelatory today as ever. In a milieu of disenchantment, disbelief and spiritual hedonism, Chesterton manages to whimsically yet poignantly wave it all away with his single greatest weapon, common sense. As a prelude to "The Everlasting Man", Orthodoxy serves as a great introduction to anyone of any faith who wants to break out of the confines of modern, claustrophobic philosophies spouting fatalism, determinism, materialism,agnosticism or any other ism, and find the joy of living in fairyland

One of my favorites.

Love this book. It’s a classic for good reason. A must read. Also love the narrator. His classic sounding British voice captures Chesterton’s tone, humor and wit perfectly. Enjoy!

One of the best of all time

Orthodoxy is one of the greatest books ever written, and John Franklyn-Robbins performs it perfectly. I forget that it’s not GK himself reading it. Definitely get Orthodoxy, and definitely get this version.

Near perfect

The combination of Chesterton and John Franklyn-Robbins is incomparable. It my audible library it is second only to "The Everlasting Man," also by Chesterton and orated by John Franklyn-Robbins.

Christianity versus everything else

An analytical trip through the mind of the 'Apostle of Common Sense' as to why he chose Christianity over everything else. Not as easy to follow as 'Mere Christianity', by CS Lewis, but a good alternate method and perspective (and Catholic).
