It means being able to take on a wide variety of ideas and disciplines and put them all together in a way that they work together It means thinking like GK ChestertonThe English author GK Chesterton was one of the most prolific and well known writers of his time and one of the most widely uoted in. I bought this book very excited to read it In all my studies I ve heard of Chesterton and read snippets of him here and there He is as Ahluist states over and over a very uotable writer I wanted a deeper dive so when I saw an ad for this book read the synopsis of it at the publisher s website and read several uoted reviews I thought This is it this is my introduction to the manAhluist divides his book into 17 chapters several of which carry black and white titles such as Old and New East and West War and Peace etc The problem with such an approach is apparent from the titles themselves rarely does real life compartmentalize itself so easily so very neatly so before I ve even begun to read I was wondering How is this going to be pulled off The answer as I read is not very wellI began reading in earnest but was disappointed rather uickly Ahluist s style of writing irritated me a bit it is simple but not simply explaining things as an FF Bruce might For example the tedious exploration of how young people talk p 24 25 as a reflection of how they think You re seriously taking a 13 year old girl and holding her up as to how they think I almost put the book down right there Or later GK Chesterton is truly a man of letters Truly p 46 OK I really believe you ReallyBe warned too that Ahluist is a devout Roman Catholic and his view shows through in many points and parts It seems that every few pages he is writing and this brings us to the Catholic Church Just a sampling includes the following Contraception is an unnatural act p 105 the Virgin Mary is the perfect woman p 128 theories of the just war Chapter 9 Calvinism the Reformation is heresy p 153 clergy I m assuming Roman Catholic priests are exceptional throughout the text whereas the New Testament writers clearly cite all believers as the new preisthood and the authority of the pope p 244 Of course for Ahluist the object of sex is life that is procreation p 199 I disagree in strong terms with his point here as a 50 year old man I can tell you without reservation that the object of my sex is mutual pleasure not procreation And as a Christian I was born Catholic but became a Christian when I was 22 the sexual act to me is a physical emotional and spiritual union that reflects in some way the mystical union of Christ with His bride the ChurchAhluist presents some concepts in large brushstrokes where dipping into particulars might serve him and the reader better For example in the chapter Old and New he talks of Modernism as if he is living in the time of Chesterton and not in the 21st century He disparages modern philosophers and new theologians but does not name any In the late chapter on Sickness and Health he laments that folks without health insurance have no business darkening the doors of a hospital p 181 This is simply not true I know he is doing it for effect and reaching for humor but such broad strokes serve little purpose but to inflame emotions around an issue that is all at once economic personal and political And sometimes in his enthusiastic approach to the material he seems to leave vital things out For example in the chapter on Sickness and Health Ahluist writes that Chesterton is trying to help us have a right understanding of the human person who is a combination of body and spirit p 192 Humans are actually tripartite beings body soul and spirit see 1 Thessalonians 523 This is no small error Neither is his confusion of religion and spirituality Or when he uotes Chesterton that earth is a task garden and heaven is a playground Really That s the summation of your spirituality your theology of how we re here on earth to store up treasure in heaven in preparation for what is to come Beyond being a childish view of the spiritual world it is a weak and dangerous viewMore irritating than troublesome are Ahluist s metatext moments speaking to the reader sprinkled throughout the text where it literally feels like he stops writing his book to wink at the reader I mention all this right here because it is certainly relevant but also because you are probably going to skip chapter 12 which is about economics just like you skipped the last chapter which was about sin p 89 I felt like jumping right into the book to retort Well no Mr Ahluist I did not skip the chapter on sin and I won t be skipping the chapter on economics But you re giving me lots of reasons to do so And sometimes his asides are condescending The harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace Haven t heard that last one It s from the Epistle of Saint James chapter 3 verse 18 And the verses that come right after it explain why wars begin You should probably look them up sometime p 122 123 Thanks Mr Ahluist but I do know that one because I ve read the Bible from cover to cover twice in two different translationsAll is not lost though There are some great moments in the book They mostly come when Ahluist is uoting Chesterton which he does liberally wide swaths of the book are given over to block uotations from Chesterton sometimes this works sometimes this works to distract In the chapter East and West basically pitting Christianity against Buddhism Chesterton is uoted It is as true of democratic fraternity as of divine love sham love ends in compromise and common philosophy but real love has always ended in bloodshed p 113 But then he goes down a rabbit hole with some odd review of a book of poems Chesterton wrote and how the poet was a heroin addict a Satanist and a tool of the Illuminati Very odd It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged p 140 The chapter on Buying and Selling and Chesterton s role in the formation of and advocacy for Distributism on the political spectrum between the Left s Socialism and the Right s Capitalism It s the idea that property ownership is a fundamental right of man Here Ahluist gets on a great roll Freedom means self government which means ruling yourself instead of having someone else rule you But ruling yourself means self control p 171 As an aside it s interesting to note how Ahluist uotes Chesterton many times on the importance of liberty for example Property is really the positive form of Liberty p 178 But he does not bring it full circle back to Jefferson s famous words in the Declaration of Independence life liberty and the pursuit of happiness and how that phrase was debated among the founders and that some argued for the pursuit of property Evidently Jefferson and Chesterton were closer thinkers than anyone realizedFor all this I found the book an interesting and eye opening read It did serve its purpose as a solid introduction to Chesterton the complete thinker The man s breadth and depth of writings are uite impressive And there are many wonderful one liners to remember and even write down My issue with the book was Ahluist s heavy hand throughout inserting himself with his stilted unhelpful and sometimes confusing prose into the text to try to prove his own particular points some would say to grind his ax While I can agree with him on many issues about society s decay and the reasons for that decay it did not work for me in how he was presenting it it here Finally for me Alhuist failed in what he set out to do to put it all together p 14 because the book has not brought together the totality of Chesteron s thoughts it simply compartmentalizes his different thoughts on different subjects Then the book just ends Still he could not prevent the brilliance of Chesterton from shining through It was a decent overview of Chesterton s writings on a wide variety of topics and in parts a very challenging and enjoyable read255 stars it was ok Fous d'amour : Un livre-cadeau uoted in.
