Overview

Heretics was written and published in 1905 by G.K. Chesterton. In these 20 essays, he laid out his understanding of the words orthodoxy and heresy. It was his first overtly religious work since becoming a famous man.

The turn of the last century produced many great thinkers as well as many great writers. Some have the distinction of being known as both. Fewer still have been adored by the masses for their public engagements and their amicable persona. Gilbert Keith Chesterton was all of those things; a true renaissance man of the modern era, whose impact on modern Christianity, and Christian apologetics, is unfortunately becoming increasingly forgotten.

Although C. S. Lewis may be a more well-known Christian apologist across the denominations, it was the works of G. K. Chesterton that helped Lewis to re-embrace his Christian faith.

Many are those that have found their way because G. K. Chesterton dared to believe in God and in miracles in an ever more secular and skeptical world.

His biographer and president of the American Chesterton Society, Dale Ahlquist, called him “the most unjustly neglected writer of our time” — a title that is not entirely undeserved.

This was scanned in, so errors appear about once every five lines, still readable however. If you have not read Chesterton, read his Orthodoxy. Heretics is a collection of his critiques of his commtemporary thinkers, many of whom may not be famikiar to you.r
