Book Review: Orthodoxy

"The modern world is full of the old Christian values gone mad."
- G.K. Chesterton

Orthodoxy is a book that I should have devoured a year ago. In retrospect, I see all of the dark nights of the soul that it could have saved me, buffered me from. Yet, the lessons I learned waging my own existential and metaphysical mind battles were well worth the wounds they inflicted and the scars I am left with. This book is wonderful. Read it. Although I thought I couldn't adore mysticism any more than I do, this book has me falling in love with not knowing all over again.



I took myself out on a date at lunch time. The cold salad plate made me swoon and the soup was novel. I read a book and felt nostalgic.
