Buchbeschreibung Ignatius Press September 1986, 1986. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Used; Good. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Very Good. Some marks and underlining observed in text. Binding tight and square. . This volume contains three of Chesterton's greatest classics on Catholic philosophy and spirituality. It includes The Everlasting Man, possibly his greatest work, which gives an Incarnational view of world history, and two of the finest biographies written of St. Thomas and St. Francis. . . 'Chesterton once said he joined the Catholic Church because only the Catholic Church could produce a St. Francis of Assisi. This collection is comprised of three books in one, and you can see why they belong together. Chesterton's biographies of St.Francis and St. Thomas Aquinas stand in brilliant relief: the nature-loving, mystical vagabond who was delightfully indifferent to books, and the staunch and scholarly philosopher, aristocrat-turned-friar, who approached God primarily through his mind. Chesterton is one of those rare men of letters who has such breadth of knowledge and depth of understanding, when it comes to the major intellectual and philosophical movements throughout human history, that he is able to place these two figures in a startlingly broad context, and explain their contributions and relevance to both the Catholic Church, and the wider world of living and learning. The sheer scope of Chesterton's knowledge astounds me. 'Everlasting Man,' I was told, is the story of Chesteron's conversion from atheism to Catholicism, but it is not. It is really a rebuke of the modern idea of 'comparative religion,' and a challenge to those who say that 'Christ stands side by side with similar myths, and his religion side by side with similar religions.' The end does, however, read as a beautiful explanation of why Chesterton sees Christianity as unique among other belief systems, and why he believes it's true: 'because the key fits the lock; because it is like life.' (Before you can assess the quality of the statement, you must, obviously, read his two-hundred page description of the lock first, and then his explanation of the key.) What surprised me most about his writing was how poetic and lyrical it can be: 'We are Christians and Catholics not because we worship a key, but because we have passed a door; and felt the wind that is the trumpet of liberty blow over the land of the living.' Chesterton says the best place to be in relation to our spiritual home is near enough to love it. If you consider the Catholic Church your spiritual home, and are near enough to love it, you might not need to read this book. He says that the next best place to be is far enough away not to hate it. And if you are far enough away from the Church not to hate it, then I would very strongly recommend this book.' -- Ellen on Goodreads. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 48754
