Seller ID: 131130D

Condition: New


Contains 5 Compact Discs. Running time is approximately 6 hours. Widely considered as Chesterton's masterpiece, "The Man Who Was Thursday" defies classification. Subtitled 'A Nightmare' by Chesterton, it is a fast moving detective thriller. Drawing on contemporary fears of anarchist conspiracies and bomb outrages, "The Man Who Was Thursday" is firmly rooted in its time and place- turn of the century London- but it also defies temporal boundaries. Police detective Gabriel Syme infiltrates a secret world that seems to have gone beyond humanity when he is elected 'Thursday' one o... View more info

Complete Unabridged Audiobook. Heretics is one of Chesterton's most important books. It is also one of his most neglected books. Chesterton says that we can't get away from the fact that we have a general view of existence, whether we like it or not. It affects and involves everything we say or do, whether we like it or not. And our general view of things is based on our ultimate view of things. Religion is never irrelevant. This book is not an attack but a defense, a defense of the ancient truths that are under attack by modern heretics. Chesterton claims to have gained a deeper appreciation ... View more info

Seller ID: 131129G

Contains 6 Compact Discs. Running Time approximately 7 hours. In spite of all the essays and poems and books and philosophy and social criticism that flowed from this prolific pen, G.K. Chesterton is best remembered for some detective stories he wrote. And it is fitting that it should be that way, because first of all, nothing would please him more, and secondly, almost everything he wrote falls right in line with his mystery stories, achieving the same effect of presenting a puzzle to us, leading us along, and finishing us off with the shock of truth, the surprise, the revelation of things th...

Utopia of Usurers G. K. Chesterton

By: G. K. Chesterton; Aidan Mackey

Price: $12.56

Publisher: IHS Press: 2002-10-01

Seller ID: 7266

ISBN: 0971489432

Condition: New


New; Utopia is a collection of over two dozen of Chesterton's most trenchant essays on what Capitalism is, and how bad it is, in both precise and readable terms. He cuts to the core, and tears away polite illusions and pathetic excuses, demonstrating that modern Capitalism stands condemned not only by the Catholic Faith but by every sane view of the world. Not for the ideologically squamish, Utopia of Usurers is a book which Aidan Mackey has called "Chesterton's angriest!" View more info

Seller ID: 7255

ISBN: 0971489483

Condition: New


New; Twelve Types is a collection of short biographical essays, by one of 20th century England's greatest essayists. In keeping with the spirit of IHS Press, that there is a Catholic way to look at everything, this book figures as Tolstoy, St. Francis, Savonarola, William Morris, and others, in the history of the West and from an unabashedly Catholic perspective. With typical wit and flair, Chesterton accomplished what modern biography most often fails to do: discuss the important and central elements of the characters it presumes to examine, while omitting tedious discussion on matters of lit...

New; The war in Ireland has spanned eight centuries, alternately blowing hot and cold, appearing at times to fade away, only to flare up more forecfully later on. According to the "experts" and media pundits, the conflict is one of religion. But Chesterton reveals in Irish Impressions that at heart the problem is one of freedom. The Irish man wants to be master in his own home, speaking his own language, reading his own books, and drinking his own whiskey. It is a war for the Irish Hearth, the Irish Home, and - ultimately - the integrity of the Irish Soul. This book is the fruit o... View more info
