Orthodoxy - G.K. Chesterton

This would have been 5 stars, except it went way over my head in the last 3 chapters or so. The first three-fourths of the book were absolutely brilliant and insightful and, with a little extra time taken to ponder, fairly easily taken in and understood, which I can appreciate, being a silly and easily befuddled young'un.

You ever read something and you think, "Man, that's deep. I know this is genius, but I can't quite wrap my head around it", and then your brain starts to hurt, but you feel somehow smarter?? That is Chesterton, 90% of the time. And about 70% of that time, I can "get it", if I re-read a couple times. And he is so worth it.
