Reviews of : The New Jerusalem by G K Chesterton PDF Book
Inside this Book – This is a series of barely-connected essays dealing with Chesterton’s travels to Jerusalem in 1919, a couple of years after the Balfour declaration. This book is probably the primary evidence against Chesterton as an anti-semite; but that’s somewhat of a twisted reading. Chesterton is certainly critical of Jews as a culture, but he’s critical of everyone as a culture, including the English. And even in this book which is technically about Jerusalem and Zionism. A more valid criticism of this book is that it is very un-Chesterton-like. In other books, Chesterton is deft at going deeper into a problem to find the roots of it; here, he tends to a more superficial outlook, and while criticizing others for deliberately ignoring history, he ignores history himself.
Inside this book –The New Jerusalem PDF Book by G K Chesterton – This was my third Chesterton book, and although I enjoyed it, I don’t think I would recommend it to anyone unless they understood exactly what they were getting into and were looking for exactly that thing. In Chesterton’s own words, “This book is only an uncomfortably large notebook … the notes were published in a newspaper as they were made on the spot; and are now reproduced in a book as they were published in the newspaper.” That kind of admission from an author typically causes me to put a book down and move on. I don’t want to read notebooks or a collection of newspaper articles. What I want to read is a book that has been lovingly mapped out from start to finish, a book into which has been poured blood, sweat, and tears, then edited to reduce the clutter and badly relayed thoughts and unfinished ideas; then edited again for clarity; then edited again for good measure.
