Product Description

Heretics is the companion volume to the previously published Orthodoxy in Hendrickson's Christian Classics series. In Heretics G. K. Chesterton unmasks the heresies of contemporary thinking by exposing the faulty thinking of popular notions, especially apparent in the arts. An often overlooked book that contains some of Chesterton's strongest writing, the author takes on the "heresies" of modern thought, such as negativism, relativism, neo-paganism, puritanism, aestheticism, and individualism. The book includes one of his best essays: "On Certain Modern Writers and the Institution of Family."

This 1905 collection of articles focuses on the era's "heretics:" those who pride themselves on their superiority to conservative views. Chesterton's companion volume to Orthodoxy asseses such artists and writers as Kipling, Shaw, Wells, and Whistler with the author's characteristic wisdom and good humor.

G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was a prolific and gifted writer in virtually every area of literature. During his life he published 69 books and at least another ten have been published after his death. Many of those books are still in print. Chesterton was one of the spiritual influences on C. S. Lewis.
