This Reading features excerpts from G.K. Chesterton's The Everlasting Man, his celebrated and unconventional take on human history. A Foreword from the Trinity Forum's Founding Chairman and Senior Fellow Alonzo L. McDonald introduces highlights from the book and gives insight into Chesterton's own search for truth.
The Everlasting Man was first released in 1925 and has had an enduring influence not least as a primary intellectual milestone in the conversion of C. S. Lewis. Our selections include Chesterton's main arguments that focus on two things that are altogether strange and unique in our experience: The first of these is the creature called man, and the second is the man called Christ. He follows humanity from the first evidences of the cave-man to the birth of Christ, the God in the cave at Bethlehem, and the dawn of a new world. As McDonald reminds us in his Foreword, this is, as Chesterton readily admits, the strangest story in the world, made stranger still by the history of the church that has followed.
