The Everlasting Man

$13.49
($14.95)
What does evidence from archaeology, ancient history, and comparative religion really teach us about ourselves? How is man is different from other animals? Why are there so many religions? Writing in a time when social Darwinism was rampant, outstanding apologist G.K. Chesterton takes on evolutionism, feminism, cultural relativism and other modernistic notions that are still prevalent today.

Sensible and Enlightened

In the classic book, The Everlasting Man, Chesterton combines a sincere reverence for his subject matter with a devastating sense of humor and a knack for turning accepted secular dogmas on their heads-- while presenting Catholic dogmas as sensible and enlightened. Staunch Defender

Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London, England on May 29, 1874. A prolific and gifted author who wrote hundreds of books, poems, and short stories (including the popular Father Brown mysteries) Chesterton was a man with strong opinions and a genius for defending them. Nevertheless his exuberant personality allowed him to maintain warm friendships with such people as George Bernard Shaw and H. G. Wells-with whom he hotly disagreed. In fact The Everlasting Man is a sort of rebuttal to H.G. Wells' agnostic Outline of History.

Ever the staunch defender of Catholicism, Chesterton believed that Christianity alone had the answers to life's dilemmas and paradoxes. His Catholic Faith illuminated his mind and opened his heart to truly experience the love of God revealed in Christ Jesus. Chesterton also used the tremendous gifts he was blessed with to address burning issue of his day (and ours).

Shortly before his death, when asked what Christian writers had helped him most, famous Christian convert C.S. Lewis remarked, "The contemporary book that has helped me the most is Chesterton's The Everlasting Man."
