Dr. Holly Ordway is a poet, academic, and Christian apologist. She holds a PhD in English Literature from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, an MA in English from UNC Chapel Hill, and a second MA in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. She is the author of Not God's Type: A Rational Academic Finds a Radical Faith, and blogs frequently at Hieropraxis.com. Her current work focuses on the intersection of Reason and Imagination.

Her favorite authors are C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, and she considers a really good cup of coffee to be one of life’s simple pleasures.

When you think of a beauty salon then I’m sure that you have a fairly similar image in your head that everyone else does but why is this?

An excellent, readable literary biography of the great GK Chesterton, recommended as an introduction to GKC's work. This is not a conventional biography, but rather one that focuses on the circumstances in which Chesterton wrote his most important wo ...more

A good translation, one that has a fresh and lively feel to it. SGGK is difficult to translate because although the Gawain-poet's is roughly contemporary with Chaucer, the Gawain-poet's writes in a dialect that did not make it into the formation of m ...more

A helpful, accessible guide to the Divine Comedy that gives the big picture and doesn't get bogged down in too many details. Excellent starting point for those interested in getting deeper into the Commedia.

“It wasn’t the promise of peace, or joy, or salvation that brought me to Christ, but the promise of truth.”
Holly Ordway

“Human experience always contains both pain and joy. One of the reasons we can be confident that Christianity is actually true is it allows us to make sense of both aspects of the world. Of both beauty and pain.”
Holly Ordway

“It is no light matter to meet God after having denied Him all one’s life.”
Holly Ordway

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
C.S. Lewis

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair.”
C.S. Lewis

“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art.... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

“It is a good rule after reading a new book, never to allow yourself another new one till you have read an old one in between.”
C.S. Lewis

“I had once thought that Christianity was a soft, wish-fulfillment religion. Now I saw that it was entirely the opposite.”
Holly Ordway
