Item description for The Everlasting Man by G. K. Chesterton...

The author presents a sweeping view of history, eloquently and concisely unpacking the whole human story in two parts: "On the Creature Called Man," and "On the Man Called Christ." He allows readers to see the divine drama in all its startling beauty.

Publishers Description

G. K. Chesterton is one of the first popular writers to object to culture's casual dismissal of the divine. In "The Everlasting Man" he restores God to our understanding of history.

"The Everlasting Man" is one of G. K. Chesterton's most important books. Frustrated with attempts to relate history without God, such as H. G. Wells' "Outline of History," "The Everlasting Man" is Chesterton's view of history, presented in two parts: "On the Creature Called Man," and "On the Man Called Christ." He argues that the central character in history is Christ, and that no explanation other than the Christian one makes sense.

Chesterton was one of the spiritual influences on C. S. Lewis, and this book in particular was a key factor in Lewis' conversion to Christianity. Readers who appreciate the writings of Lewis will want to explore the writings of those who influenced him, including Chesterton. "The Everlasting Man" is now available from Hendrickson in a re-typeset and redesigned version.

Reviews - What do customers think about Everlasting Man?

Beautiful condition!  Oct 28, 2008
I have no additional comments. The book is in pristine condition. I look forward to reading it.
Great Book - Terrible Version  Oct 1, 2008
All of the reviews of this book are right on - it is a watershed in Christian and Catholic apologetics.


I've looked for an explanation as to how this could happen, and I've found none. BUYER BEWARE!
The Everlasting Man  Sep 22, 2008
Book is a spiritual classic and I was glad to find it in paperback for my library.
Good book ruined by an incompetent publisher  Aug 15, 2008
This may have been a fine work in its original form, but this edition (Wilder Publications, 2008) is so shoddy, it isn't worth the effort to try to read it. Based on my own experience with OCR software, I would guess that this publisher scanned an old copy, translated it to text, then reformatted it, and printed it. There is no evidence that anyone proofread it prior to printing. It it doubtful that it was even run through a spell-check program. Periods are missing at the ends of sentences; words are left out; "d", "h", and "b" are confused; apostrophies are inserted randomly (probably fly-spots on the original), "and" repeatedly appears as "an", "modern" almost always appears as "modem", etc. ad infinitum.
I read through about a fourth of the book before giving up in exasperation.
A classic - in a poor edition  Jul 9, 2008
I received mine copy today and will return it. It does not have Chesterton's Prefatory Note and the Introduction has been truncated from 10 pages (soft cover Doubleday) to three paragraphs! I started to read it and two pages in I found a typo. Also, I am not pleased with the quality of the print.

The Everlasting Man is a classic and should be read by everyone. It is a shame that the quality of this edition is so mediocre.
