He wrote on philosophy, ontology, poetry, plays, journalism, public lectures and debates, literary and art criticism, biography, Christian apologetics, and fiction, including fantasy and detective fiction. Chesterton is often referred to as the "prince of paradox". Whenever possible, Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, and allegories—first carefully turning them inside out. Chesterton is well known for his reasoned apologetics and even some of those who disagree with him have recognized the universal appeal of such works as Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man. Chesterton, as a political thinker, cast aspersions on both progressivism and conservatism, saying, "The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected." Chesterton routinely referred to himself as an "orthodox" Christian, and came to identify such a position more and more with Catholicism, eventually converting to Roman Catholicism from High Church Anglicanism. George Bernard Shaw, Chesterton's "friendly enemy" said of him, "He was a man of colossal genius".

Cape und zerdrückter Hut, Stockdegen und Zigarre.*Er war ein Mann mit Stil.*Und natürlich exzentrisch.*In den letzten Monaten seines Lebens veröffentlichte Gilbert Keith Chesterton monatlich eine Kriminalnovelle im »Storyteller« – ihr Held ist ein seltsamer Regierungsbeamter namens Mr. Pond.*Die Sammlung dieser acht scharfsinnigen Geschichten »Die Paradoxe des Mr. Pond« erschien erst ein Jahr nach Chestertons Tod. Es ist sein letzter literarischer Coup und wir wissen: nur in schlechten Detektivgeschichten ist die Lösung materieller Natur.*Ein Jahrzehnt zuvor erschienen die »Geschichten vom überspannten Bogen« mit Helden, die in bizarre Abenteuer geraten; geschrieben mit diebischer Freude am Paradoxen, Märchenhaften und Surrealen, handelt doch jede Geschichte vom Umsetzen eines englischen Sprichworts in die Wirklichkeit – und Unmögliches wird möglich.*Nun sind diese unmöglichen Geschichten nach bald neunzig Jahren endlich ins Deutsche übertragen worden.

Become a champion of hope! As we see chaos in the world around us, we want to have hope. But what is hope, and where does it come from? Hope is more than simple optimism that things get better, or a finger-crossed wishing that things go our way. Live Hope Minute explores the life-transforming concept of true hope and how to keep a godly perspective in our current circumstances. Through these short, inspiring devotions: • Your hope will become grounded in unshakeable faith. • Your life will become marked by love that you cannot help but give away. • Your vision will grow and keep you moving toward God and his plan for your life. When you discover true hope, you will find you are building your house on the rock that will not move. Regardless of the storms and challenges you face, you can demonstrate to those around you that life is more than just what we can see or feel. Be amazed at the power and comfort God’s hope can offer.

Die Debatten um die Reproduktionsmedizin und die Erblichkeit der Intelligenz werfen Fragen auf nach der Kontinuität eugenischer Praktiken, d. h. der Optimierung menschlicher Eigenschaften durch die Steuerung des Fortpflanzungsverhaltens. Dieses Programm ist eng verknüpft mit dem »Dritten Reich«, Zwangssterilisationen und der Vernichtung »unwerten Lebens«. Doch schon vor Beginn der Naziherrschaft warnten Autoren wie Aldous Huxley und Gilbert Keith Chesterton hellsichtig vor den Gefahren der Eugenik. Chestertons Essay "Eugenik und andere Übel" zeigt grundlegende Probleme eugenischen Denkens auf und liegt nun erstmals auf deutsch vor. Thomas Lemke erläutert den historischen Kontext und zeigt, daß Chestertons Mahnungen nichts von ihrer Aktualität verloren haben.

"Was hat das alles nur zu bedeuten?" Immer wieder stellt sich der biedere Swinburne diese Frage, während er mit seinem Freund Basil Grant, einem Richter außer Dienst, und dessen Bruder Rupert in den Gassen von London in eine geheimnisvolle Welt eintaucht, in der schier unglaubliche Kriminalfälle auf die ungleichen Freunde warten. Stets verirrt sich Rupert, als nüchterner Privatdetektiv eine Karikatur des Sherlock Holmes, in haltlose Theorien, da seine Vernunftschlüsse der verwirrenden Wirklichkeit nicht standhalten. Basil Grant aber, der weise und scheinbar so weltfremde Richter, löst die Rätsel mit einem Blick für die einfachen Wahrheiten, die unter einer täuschenden Oberfläche verborgen liegen. - Ein Vorläufer der Erzählungen vom Priesterdetektiv Father Brown - und ein phantastisches und bizarres Porträt der Stadt London in der unnachahmlichen Art Chestertons.

This early work by G. K. Chesterton was originally published in 1903. Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London in 1874. He studied at the Slade School of Art, and upon graduating began to work as a freelance journalist. Over the course of his life, his literary output was incredibly diverse and highly prolific, ranging from philosophy and ontology to art criticism and detective fiction. However, he is probably best-remembered for his Christian apologetics, most notably in Orthodoxy (1908) and The Everlasting Man (1925). We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
