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."
