Heretics is G. K. Chesterton's second published work and the first of his Christian apologetics. Heretics is a collection of 20 essays and articles focusing on "heretics," those who pride themselves in their superiority to conservative views. Chesterton appraises prominent figures from the literary and art worlds including Kipling, Shaw, Wells, and Whistler. Heretics belongs to yet another area of literature at which Chesterton excelled. A fun-loving and gregarious man, he was nevertheless troubled in his adolescence by thoughts of suicide. In Christianity he found the answers to the dilemmas and paradoxes he saw in life. Other books in that same series include Orthodoxy (written in response to attacks on this book) and The Everlasting Man. Gilbert Keith Chesterton was an English prolific and diverse writer whose subjects include philosophy, ontology, poetry, playwriting, Christian apologetics, and fiction, including detective fiction. Chesterton is well known for his reasoned apologetics, as a political thinker and orthodox Christian.
