"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.
