Overview

The Everlasting Man by G. K. Chesterton

Considered by many to be Chesterton's greatest masterpiece of all his writings, this is his whole view of world history as informed by the Incarnation. Beginning with the origin of man and the various religious attitudes throughout history, Chesterton shows how the fulfillment of all of man's desires takes place in the person of Christ and in Christ's Church.

Chesterton propounds the thesis that "those who say that Christ stands side by side with similar myths, and his religion side by side with similar religions, are only repeating a very stale formula contradicted by a very striking fact." And with all the brilliance and devastating irony, so characteristic of his best writing, Chesterton gleefully and tempestuously tears to shreds that "very stale formula" and triumphantly proclaims in vivid language the glory and unanswerable logic of that very striking fact. Here is the genius of Chesterton at its delightful best.

For so long I've heard of Chesterton & read others quoting him. This introduction to the man himself was inspiring and I'm on my way to another book by this unique, brilliant, and humorous literary giant. As a huge Lewis & Tolkein fan, I've discovered another friend whose wisdom and intellect is enlightening and challenging. His analysis of comparative religions is stunningly clear & irrefutable. The format worked well for me.
