Item description for The Everlasting Man by G. K. Chesterton...
Overview 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.
Publishers Description "I read Chesterton's Everlasting Man and for the first time saw the whole Christian outline of history set out in a form that seemed to me to make sense..." -C.S. Lewis in Surprised by Joy "G. K. Chesterton routinely ignites more ideas per page than any Christian author of the twentieth century, with the possible exception of C. S. Lewis. Chesterton sometimes overstates, often maddens, and invariably provokes a new and better way of seeing things." - John G. Stackhouse, Jr. G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was an English journalist and author, perhaps best known today for his Father Brown mystery novels and his sense of humour, which has helped make him one of the most quoted twentieth-century writers.

Reviews - What do customers think about The 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.
EVERY CUSTOMER SHOULD KNOW, HOWEVER, THAT THIS BOOK HAS 5 TYPOS IN EVERY PARAGRAPH. IT IS REDICULOUS, AND YOU ARE BEST SERVED BUYING A DIFFERENT VERSION.
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.
