Summary

The three great apologies of G.K. Chesterton in one volume: Heretics, Orthodoxy, and The Everlasting Man

Gilbert Keith Chesterton has become synonymous with modern Christian apologetics. But his impact goes beyond just those interested in a defense of Christian thought. His writings have influenced such diverse authors as C.S. Lewis, Marshall McLuhan, and Jorge Luis Borges, and remains a subtle and unseen presence in contemporary Catholic thought. At his funeral, Ronald Knox said "All of this generation has grown up under Chesterton's influence so completely that we do not even know when we are thinking Chesterton." 

Before his conversion from atheism to knowing God, C.S. Lewis, the author of Mere Christianity and The Great Divorce, said "In reading Chesterton, as in reading MacDonald, I did not know what I was letting myself in for. A young man who wishes to remain a sound atheist cannot be too careful of his reading. There are traps everywhere."

A classic read well by a good narrator

I believe this narrator captures the essence of Chesterton's words. The narration is rather impressive and engaging.

I need not speak of Chesterton's work in much detail. But these three works contain essential apologetics in regard to understanding the character of today's age. Truly he is C.S. Lewis's predecessor in unraveling the metanarratives that bind the common man of today.
