That's right. Moody has repackaged their version of G.K. Chesterton's Orthodoxyand I've added an introduction to it that explains why I think everyone should read it. It's a fun little introduction, with opinions about the book that I've never said anywhere before. But the whole point of an introduction is to have a reason to carry on through the book itself, and in this I think it will be successful. The timing is good, too. If you get a copy you should read it along with my skeptical friend David Sessions, who is giving it a critical once-over during the next few weeks. I am sure he would appreciate the dialogue.
Oh, and did I mention that there's an excerpt from The End of our Exploringin it as well? That's in it, too. It's a bit cheeky, I realize, putting my words next to Chesterton's. But I'm sure he'll come out all right in the comparison.
Of course, none of this really works unless people spread the word. If you're on one of those social networks and want your friends to read a book I've affectionately dubbed the most important work of the twenty-first century, even though it was written in the twentieth, you know (I imagine) what to do. And if you haven't read it, I can promise that it will make both entertaining and instructive summer reading.
