“The best modern argument for Christianity I’ve ever read . . . Be careful—you might just be converted.” —Ross Douthat, The Week
Philosopher and literary critic, as well as creator of the popular detective Father Brown, G. K. Chesterton takes us on a journey through history and human civilization in this classic work of lay theology, arguing—against the views of some of his contemporaries, H. G. Wells notable among them—that Jesus was simply a historical figure, albeit an extraordinary one, and Christianity is no different than any other religion. A book that had profound influence on C. S. Lewis, author of the Chronicles of Narnia series, The Everlasting Man is considered one of the great modern examples of Christian apologetics.
