Othrodoxy by G.K. Chesterton

Here are a couple of my favorite quotes from Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton:On the evolutionary basis you may be inhumane, or you may be absurdly humane; but you cannot be human. That you and a tiger are one may be a reason for being tender to a tiger. Or it may be a reason for being as cruel as the tiger. It is one way to train the tiger to imitate you, it is a shorter way to imitate the tiger. But in neither case does evolution tell you how to treat a tiger reasonably, that is, to admire his stripes while avoiding his claws.All humanity does agree that we are in a net of sin. Most of humanity agrees that there is some way out. But as to what is the way out, I do not think that there are two institutions in the universe which contradict each other so flatly as Buddhism and Christianity.This book is in the public domain which means that you can legally download the entire text for free and read it on your computer. Just click hereI'm rereading some Chesterton in preparation for some sermons I'll be preaching here at ACC on the first 3 Sundays in October.
