The Everlasting People: G. K. Chesterton and the First Nations (Hansen Lectureship Series) Kindle Edition
About the Author
Matthew J. Milliner (PhD, Princeton University) is associate professor of art history at Wheaton College. He has written for publications ranging from The New York Times to First Things. He was awarded a Commonwealth Fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia to complete his book Mother of the Lamb.--This text refers to the paperback edition.
Somewhere under the larches of Paradise, G. K. Chesterton and Nicholas Black Elk are sharing a pipe to celebrate the publication of The Everlasting People. Down here we can do our part by spreading the word. Buy a copy for yourself and three more to give to friends.--John Wilson, founding editor of Books & Culture
In one of the most unexpected and original explorations of G. K. Chesterton's rich ideas, Matthew Milliner has opened an entirely new territory of scholarship and social studies. Chesterton's endless creativity has somehow gotten even more creative!--Dale Ahlquist, president of the Society of Gilbert Keith Chesterton
I'm so grateful to read my friend Matthew's good words in this new book. They would not have come together without many long days and nights of researching and uncovering terrible truths about the atrocities of the colonization and attempted eradication of Indigenous people in North America. Those stories are not easy to tell, especially for settlers. Years ago, I remember Matthew speaking about these very atrocities and again I was grateful. He is a truth seeker and teller. His work is well researched and therefore may cause discomfort to those who are still living with a colonizer mindset. Decolonization simply means hearing a different story and changing your mind. In this book, Dr. Milliner does a beautiful job of telling that different story. Thank you, my friend.--Cheryl Bear, Nadleh Whut'en First Nation
Matthew Milliner applies inspiration from the writings and musings of G. K. Chesterton to look deeper into the cultures of the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island (North America). Milliner allows his own experiences in relationship with Native North Americans to challenge his preconceptions and his understanding of where faith in Jesus begins on this continent. With unusual transparency for a theologian, he shares much from his own relational and cultural experiences as he gives readers thoughtful ways to approach Indigenous theology. This book is filled with contemplative insights, soul-searching questions, and generous footnotes for further reading. It is my hope that books like this will create cultural bridges that will foster further conciliatory opportunities.--Terry M. Wildman, lead translator, general editor, and project manager of the First Nations Version New Testament
Matthew Milliner's careful exploration of Native American history and current circumstances draws unexpected inspiration from the works of G. K. Chesterton. Chesterton, who made only two short visits to the United States, turns out to have addressed themes that for Milliner illuminate Indigenous experience with unusual force. Art, history, contemporary reflection, and theology combine to make this a work of rare and sparkling insight.--Mark Noll, author of A History of Christianity in the United States and Canada --This text refers to the paperback edition.
