Publisher's Description

This classic exploration of human history vis-à-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 early twentieth century, G. K. Chesterton explains how religion — a blend of philosophy and mythology — 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 the Church — 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 is leavened with the author's characteristic wit and wisdom, and appeals to the mind as well as the heart.

    A truly first rate responce to H. G. Wells 'Outline Of History', which was the most influential history book of the 20th century. Wells put forth the atheist doctrine of history as evolution. G.K. demolishes this notion, returning history back to 'His Story', showing how God works throughout history for the redemption of mankind. His spot on satire, sense of humor, and brilliant use of words definitely help. One distractiing point in common with all of Chesterton's books, which may make it harder to read for some, is the huge size of his paragraphs. He really should have broken them into smaller one with one subject per paragraph. Not 3 to 5.

    Outside of some word choices that were OK in the early 20th Century but are now discouraged,his overall writing is very interesting, the kind you have to reread occasionally to get his point. His insights to the human element are encouraging. We experience LIFE as we are trying to understand it, we don't think it through without the need to be in the middle of it for GOD's revelation to hit the mark. We are above or beyond pure rationality, but it's a great start.
