About this product
- DescriptionG. K. Chesterton is already a staple in the Hendrickson list with Orthodoxy and Heretics in the Hendrickson Christian Classics series. Kwn primarily for his n-fiction, he also wrote fiction, and The Napoleon of Notting Hill and The Man Who was Thursday are among his best kwn and most loved vels. The Napoleon of Notting Hill, his first vel, tells the story of residents of a London suburb who take up arms and declare their independence from England. Line drawings are included throughout. The Man Who was Thursday, his most famous vel, tells the story of a policeman who becomes unwittingly--and unwillingly--caught up in a resistance group that is infiltrating a secret organization of anarchists.
- Author BiographyG. K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was one of C. S. Lewis' primary mentors in apologetics, and an influence even in his conversion. Novelist, poet, essayist, and journalist, Chesterton was perhaps best known for his Father Brown detective stories. He produced more than 100 volumes in his lifetime, including biographies of St. Francis of Assisi and St. Thomas Aquinas. His Everlasting Man, which set out a Christian outline of history, was one of the factors that wore down Lewis' resistance to Christianity. Chesteron was one of the first defenders of orthodoxy to use humor as a weapon. Perhaps more important was his use of reason to defend faith.
