Meandering Christian apology

An outpouring of Chesterton's potted history of the world that explains Christian transcendence. Having a second listen and appreciating it more both the brilliance of Chesterton's mind ( God inspired no doubt) and Bernard's delivery. A story of one Man who we can see has been in the heart of all men, even cave men, from the dawn of time till that time we call 'today'.

Truth with humor

It was a difficult read. I had to Google many references. Definitely worth the effort. .

considering the world of beliefs

I enjoyed hearing this book read. I read it many years ago and so enjoyed thinking about the beliefs of the world again.
