First published in 1920, this trenchant, at times angry book reveals a different side of G K Chesterton (1874-1936), renowned for his lively essays, his detective stories, and his Christian apologetics. In it, Chesterton reflects on the long history of Jerusalem, and offers perceptive observations and critiques on the three religions for whom it is holy ground - Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. Chesterton's perspectives mingle poetic flights with blunt assessments about the situation in the Muslim East, particularly with regard to Zionism. His views are the antithesis of what would be regarded today as 'politically correct', yet they have proved to be almost prophetic in some respects.

G K Chesterton

Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London, England, in 1874. He went on to study art at the Slade School, and literature at University College in London. Chesterton wrote a great deal of poetry, as well as works of social and literary criticism. Among his most notable books are The Man Who Was Thursday, a metaphysical thriller, and The Everlasting Man, a history of humankind's spiritual progress. After Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922, he wrote mainly on religious topics such as Orthodoxy and Heretics. Chesterton is most known for creating the famous priest-detective character Father Brown, who first appeared in The Innocence of Father Brown. Chesterton died in 1936 at the age of 62.
