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.

  • "Never afraid to challenge the contemporary philosophies of the day, Chesterton wrote this book in response to H. G. Wells's Outline of history. In the preface to the 1st edition, he states its thesis as, "Those who say that Christ stands side by side with similar myths, and his religion as side by side with similar religions, are only repeating a very stale formula contradicted by a very striking fact.' Beginning with an insightful study on the nature of man, Chesterton argues that the central character in history is Jesus Christ, the everlasting Man. He triumphantly asserts the glory and unassailable logic of Christ as the God who, in the fullness of time, steps into his own creation. C.S. Lewis later wrote, 'I read Chesterton's Everlasting Man and for the first time saw the whole Christian outline of history set out in a form that seemed to me to make sense.'"

  • "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."
  • "Explores how the fulfillment of all of man's desires takes place in the person of Christ and in Christ's Church."
  • "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."
