Description
Highly influential in C. S. Lewis' conversion from atheism to Christianity, The Everlasting Man continues to inspire new generations of readers.Considered by many to be Chesterton's greatest masterpiece, this book declares his comprehensive view of world history as informed by the Incarnation. Retelling mankind's story from the very beginning, he shows how all human desires are fulfilled in the person of Christ and Christ's church. With his characteristic brilliance and irony, he argues that Christianity is not just a religion to stand beside other religions, for the fact of the Incarnation sets it apart.One of the most original and controversial theological works ever written, The Everlasting Man offers a commanding perspective of world history and aims to restore our sense of wonder in the universe, our God, and ourselves.

Highly influential in C. S. Lewis' conversion from atheism to Christianity, this book continues to inspire new generations of readers.

Considered by many to be Chesterton's greatest masterpiece, this book declares his comprehensive view of world history as informed by the Incarnation. Retelling man's story from the very beginning, he shows how all of men's desires are fulfilled in the person of Christ and Christ's church. With his characteristic brilliance and irony, he argues that Christianity is not just a religion to stand beside other religions, for the fact of the Incarnation sets it quite apart.

One of the most original and controversial theological works ever written, this book offers a commanding perspective of world history and offers to restore our sense of wonder in the universe, our God, and ourselves.
