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 Chestertons greatest masterpiece, this book declares his comprehensive view of world history as informed by the Incarnation. Retelling mankinds story from the very beginning, he shows how all human desires are fulfilled in the person of Christ and Christs 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.
