Description

G. K. Chesterton is one of the first popular writers to object to culture's casual dismissal of the divine. In "The Everlasting Man" he restores God to our understanding of history.

"The Everlasting Man" is one of G. K. Chesterton's most important books. Frustrated with attempts to relate history without God, such as H. G. Wells' "Outline of History," "The Everlasting Man" is Chesterton's view of history, presented in two parts: "On the Creature Called Man," and "On the Man Called Christ." He argues that the central character in history is Christ, and that no explanation other than the Christian one makes sense.

Chesterton was one of the spiritual influences on C. S. Lewis, and this book in particular was a key factor in Lewis' conversion to Christianity. Readers who appreciate the writings of Lewis will want to explore the writings of those who influenced him, including Chesterton. "The Everlasting Man" is now available from Hendrickson in a re-typeset and redesigned version.
