#RenewYourMind – GK Chesterton’s Orthodoxy

Join the staff team in reading GK Chesterton’s classic book Orthodoxy.  Then on Thursday 4th July, for the next #RenewYourMind session, Mike Cain will host an evening for anyone up for chatting about the book.  Mike says,

“This book will make you laugh out loud!  But more than that, when I was in danger of walking away from the Lord, this was the book that didn’t just give me reasons to keep going but ignited my imagination and showed that not only was He true, but He was also more beautiful than anything else”.

Here’s the blurb from the back:

“Antiquated.  Unimaginative.  Repressive.  We’ve all heard these common reactions to orthodox Christian beliefs.  Even Christians themselves are guilty of the tendency to discard historic Christianity.  As Charles Colson writes in the foreword, ‘Evangelicals, despite their professed belief in the Bible, have not been exempt from the influence of the postmodernist spirit.’  This spirit is averse to Truth and the obedience that follows.  And people today, as in Chesterton’s day, continue to look anywhere but heavenward for something to believe in.

 

Up for it?  Click here to buy your book (or Amazon, or here for a free ebook) – NB there are different editions – if everyone has the Moody Publishers 2009 edition (see picture) then the page numbers will be the same! 

This is a book that really helps to talk through with others.  Sign up here to book a spot at book chat on the evening of Thursday 4th July (venue and time tbc).  If you can’t make the evening to chat, please do read along with the staff team and everyone else, and sign up to find out who else is reading too.
