Essays Radical and Orthodox
eBook (PDF), 163 Pages
With a preface by John Milbank, one of the world’s most distinguished theologians, this book addresses Radical Orthodoxy; the connections between the Hebraic and the Hellenic traditions; the fallacy of both liberal and reactionary assumptions concerning the Second Vatican Council; Catholicism as, and as more than, Evangelical, Charismatic and liberal; Catholic imaginative writing, and anti-Catholicism as an imaginative stimulus, in Tudor and Stuart England; Newman, Hopkins, Belloc, Chesterton, Greene and Waugh; a Catholic defence of the Confessional State, including the Act of Settlement; the more recent works of Dr Edward Norman; the problems with, and the opportunities for, the Anglican Ordinariate, as well as the left-wing reasons why Parliament should in any case say no to women bishops in the Church of England; and the left-wing defence of Opus Dei.

Feb 24, 2012Though I say so myself? No. “It is high time that the singular and yet wholly pertinent writings of this County Durham Catholic Labour prophet receive a wider circulation,” says Professor John Milbank, Professor in Religion, Politics and Ethics, University of Nottingham.
Feb 21, 2012This is the worst book I've ever read and it demonstrates why Lindsay can't get published except by paying someone to do it. His only claim to relative "fame" is that he managed to get a Telegraph blog for a couple of weeks in 2009 by faking his CV and pretending to be a Durham academic. In fact he has never held an academic post and never published an academic paper or book. Palatinate, the Durham newspaper, has tracked Lindsay's frauds and this worthless book shows why its author is best regarded as a figure of fun. His factual knowledge is feeble and his prose style a parody of illiterate turgid prose.
Sep 7, 2011Is there a worse book out there in the marketplace? Seems unlikely as this is the bottom of the market, a self-published vanity work that the author paid for. It's a terrible book even more than you'd expect. The author is a hopeless writer, turgid and functionally illiterate. His ignorance of politics, philosophy, theology and history are so gaping it's a car-crash of a book. Sad really, because Lindsay hasn't got anything else in life. He's now in his mid-30s, uneployed and unemployable whose stupidity is the only exceptional thing abiut hm. He got expelled by one Durham college and faked his CV by pretending to be an academic at another. That got him sacked after 2 weeks as unpaid blogger at the Telegraph. All he's got now is a vanity press and a host of imagimary friends.
Aug 23, 2011David Lindsay is famous at Durham for his stupidity which he confirms with this unreadable, illiterate and paranoid volume. You might wonder how an academic could write books like this. The answer is that Lindsay is no academic, that's a fraud.
Aug 23, 2011Hard to imagine there will be a worse book published this year, even at this end of the market, the vanity press. Lindsay's blog is well-known for fantasy, paranoia and fraud and this book is even worse. He has no clue how to write a sentence and his lack of education is all too obvious. That must be the reason why he continues with his embarrassingly obvious scam of pretending to be an academic when in fact he is unemployable and his schemes are wittily exposed by Palatinate, the Durham newspaper.
