Chesterton i The Man Who Knew Too Much i capped his brilliant literary career with this exploration of right thinking and how it led to his acceptance of the Christian faith Although this is a very personal account of his conversion Chesterton makes it clear he came to a rational decision based upon his scholarly examination of Christianity s arguments intending to provide a positive companion to the previous Heretics This is a reprint of the edition published by Dodd Mead amp Company and cited in Books for College Libraries d ed Annotation Book News Inc Portland OR, What if anything is it that makes the human uniquely human This in part is the question that G K Chesterton starts with in this classic exploration of human history Responding to the evolutionary materialism of his contemporary and antagonist H G Wells Chesterton in this work affirms human uniqueness and the unique message of the Christian faith Writing in a time when social Darwinism was rampant Chesterton instead argued that the idea that society has been steadily progressing from a state of primitivism and barbarity towards civilization is simply and flatly inaccurate Barbarism and civilization were not successive stages in the progress of the world he affirms with arguments drawn from the histories of both Egypt and Babylon p As always with Chesterton there is in this analysis something as he said of Blake very plain and emphatic He sees in Christianity a rare blending of philosophy and mythology or reason and story which satisfies both the mind and the heart On both levels it rings true As he puts it in answer to the historical query of why it was accepted and is accepted I answer for millions of others in my reply because it fits the lock because it is like life Here as so often in Chesterton we sense a lived awakened faith All that he writes derives from a keen intellect guided by the heart s own knowledge p, Father Brown s powers of detection allow him to sit beside the immortal Holmes but he is also to quote Rufus King in all senses a most pleasantly fascinating human being You will be enchanted by the scandalously innocent man of the cloth with the umbrella who exhibits such uncanny insight into ingeniously tricky human problems, G K Chesterton s masterpiece The Man Who Was Thursday is a metaphysical thriller and a detective story filled with poetry and politics Gabriel Syme is a poet and a police detective Lucian Gregory is a poet and a bomb throwing anarchist Syme infiltrates a secret meeting of anarchists and becomes Thursday one of the seven members of the Central Anarchist Council He soon learns however that he is not the only one in disguise and the nightmare begins
