Publisher Comments:

This classic exploration of human history vis-and#224;-vis its link to Christianity ponders the question: What makes human beings uniquely human? In this thoughtful response to the rampant social Darwinism of the earlyand#160;twentieth century, G. K. Chesterton explains how religion and#8212; a blend of philosophy and mythology and#8212; satisfies both the human intellect and the spirit, and sets man starkly apart from any other living creature.

Written in 1925, this enduring polemic still strikes a modern chord. Addressing evolution, feminism, and cultural relativism within the context of religion, the book also examines religious skepticism. How does one sustain belief in Jesus Christ and#8212; and the Church and#8212; when, throughout history, the key to religious truth has been constantly reshaped? According to Chesterton, the shape of the key is not important. What matters is that it fits the lock and opens the door. An emphatic affirmation of Christian faith, The Everlasting Man isand#160;leavened with the author's characteristic wit and wisdom, and appeals to the mind as well as the heart.

Synopsis:

Chesterton's view of Christianityand#160;and#151; as a blend of philosophy and mythology, satisfyingand#160;intellect and spiritand#160;and#151; applies to his brilliant book, which appeals to readers' heads as well as their hearts.

Synopsis:

A history of humanity, Christ, and Christianity, this 1925 polemic famously converted C. S. Lewis from atheism. Chesterton's view of Christianity — as a rare blend of philosophy and mythology, satisfying to both intellect and spirit — applies to his brilliant book, which appeals to readers' heads as well as their hearts.
