The everlasting man

The Everlasting Man is a history of mankind, Christ and Christianity written by G.K. Chesterton. It is to some extent a deliberate rebuttal of H.G. Wells' ""Outline of History, "" disputing Wells' portrayals of human life and civilization as a seamless development from animal life and of Jesus Christ as merely another charismatic figure. Whereas ""Orthodoxy"" detailed Chesterton's own spiritual journey, in this book he tries to illustrate the spiritual journey of mankind, or at least of Western civilization.

  • "Here is the book that converted C. S. Lewis from atheism to Christianity. This history of mankind, Christ, and Christianity is to some extent a conscious rebuttal of H. G. Wells' Outline of History, which embraced both the evolutionary origins of humanity and the mortal humanity of Jesus. Whereas Orthodoxy detailed Chesterton's own spiritual journey, this book illustrates the spiritual journey of humanity, or at least of Western civilization. A book for both mind and spirit."
  • "G. K. Chesterton's epic, legendary tome chronicles the history of humanity and Christianity. His work was so influential, it is said to have been the driving force behind C. S. Lewis' conversion and literary masterpieces. Here, Chesterton talks about his own spiritual journey while exploring the pinnacle definition of Christian Orthodoxy."
