Item description for Heretics (Value Price) by G. K. Chesterton...

With characteristic wit and wisdom, G.K. Chesterton unmasks the heresies of modernism by exposing the flawed thought underlying so many popular fallacies of the 20th Century - particularly as they emerged in the arts and literature. An often overlooked book that contains some of Chesterton's strongest writing, it takes on a host of trendy and toxic notions such as negativism, relativism, neo-paganism, aestheticism, and individualism.

Publishers 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.
Chesterton was one of the spiritual influences on C. S. Lewis. Readers who appreciate the writings of Lewis will want to explore the writings of those who influenced him, including Chesterton. Heretics is now available from Hendrickson in a re-typeset and redesigned version as a welcome addition to the successful Christian Classics series.

Reviews - What do customers think about Heretics (Value Price)?

Christianity Vol. 1   Aug 30, 2008
As he himself affirmed, Chesterton was criticized on numerous occasions for maintaining a seemingly irreverent or flippant tone and attitude while writing about subjects that inherently demand the utmost sincerity. To superficially read Heretics might be to understand the apparent validity of such criticism. On the surface it seems as if Chesterton could not have cared much less about the philosophies of the prominent individuals that he attacks as heretical throughout this work, let alone the vague conception of orthodoxy that he utilizes as a basis of comparison. However, these claims against Chesterton only appear valid until the reader ascertains that the author's wit, jocularity, and jovial nature are not to be confused with insincerity. The light touch that Chesterton applies to heavy though is not an indication of indifference, but rather a testament to the acuity of his mind and subtle genius. It might not, it seems, have been possible for Chesterton, or anyone, to have been more serious and sincere. Chesterton cared very much, and that is what sheds light on Heretics' almost impossibly simple truth.

In Heretics, Chesterton outlines the popular philosophies of his day which stood in opposition to not only logic but also that which the author maintained as truth. Amazingly, more than a century later, the same truth is still available and apparent to those who seek it while the same philosophies, although perhaps slightly altered, still stand in direct contradiction to what Chesterton understood to be unmistakable truth. What might be the greatest truth so easily recovered from the pages of Heretics, yet which remains so hidden from the view of the masses, is the incomplete substance, as opposed to the mere falsity, of many philosophies. Chesterton's work, however, was, as he admitted, left unfinished with regard to Heretics and later fulfilled with the publication of Orthodoxy. If Heretics presented a problem, Orthodoxy presented the solution. Both are timeless classics, and both should be read if an understanding of Christianity in relation to apparent philosophical and ideological truths is sought.
$6.99 here, or $0.00 on Gutenberg  Dec 9, 2007
The company asking $6.99 for this public domain book, widely available on the Web, is called BiblioBazaar.

Bizarre would better fit.

.99 is, perhaps, reasonable for a repackaged public domain book, though really Kindle users should just find unencrypted Mobipocket files and load them using the USB to their Kindle.

In the meantime, caveat emptor!
Early Review  Nov 4, 2007
Just begain reading "Heretics." I wish I had found this book, and Chesterton, 30 years ago when I was 20 instead of now when I am 50.

Ideas and actions can take decades sometimes a century or more to "bloom."

During 1905, Chesterton identifies errors that have bloomed and guide/justify our day's thinking & action -- runious errors.

Can't wait to finish.

Should be required reading.
Quotable as always  May 27, 2007
Chesterton is always a joy to read. Precise, poetic, inspired prose and a razor-sharp mind.
Heretics  Jan 11, 2007
A fantastic book by a great writer, highly recommend it for anyone interested in Apologetics, or just fun argument should definitely read it. While this review will hardly do justice to him, Chesterton is amazingly complex, and while sometimes incorrect, offensive, or fallacious, he is always intelligent, witty, and generally has an opinion very much worth listening to. Highly recommended.
