No current Talk conversations about this book.
I totally agree with his beliefs but the writing was too complicated for me.
Considered by many to be Chesterton's greatest masterpiece of all his writings, this is his whole view of world history as informed by the Incarnation. Beginning with the origin of man and the various religious attitudes throughout history, Chesterton shows how the fulfillment of all of man's desires takes place in the person of Christ and in Christ's Church.
I read this book in 2014 and could not find a single margin note of mine in the entire book - which surprised me because I like Chesterton's writings. Without my margin notes, I cannot provide a just review, except to say that I do recall enjoying all of Chesterton's books that I read.

The Everlasting Man is second in my series of books to fill my year with G. K. Chesterton. I continue to appreciate Chesterton for his wit, eloquence, and admiration for beauty and joy; while I am beginning to have some hesitation with his overall body of work.

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.
