'Heretics' (1905), 'Orthodoxy' (1908) and 'The Everlasting Man' (1925) form a trilogy of Christian apologetics, chronicling Chesterton's journey to faith, and his reasons for it. Using endless paradox to whip the complacency of rationalism, here is both sweeping argument and comic turn that is at once generous and savage; engaging and furious. In 'Heretics', Chesterton starts from his belief that the most important thing about a person is their view of the universe, as this determines all else; and he decries the rationalist view for having no vision of ultimate good. Such failure of nerve is expressed in George Bernard Shaw's epigram: 'The golden rule is that there is no rule.' Taking on Ibsen, HG Wells, Kipling, Oscar Wilde and Nietzsche, Chesterton rails against 'the great mental destruction', in which everything is denied, and nothing affirmed. It is a plea for people to believe in something, but not to believe in anything.
