Publisher's Summary

Few people had a more profound effect on Christianity in the 20th century than G. K. Chesterton. The Everlasting Man, written in response to an anti-Christian history of humans penned by H.G. Wells, is considered Chesterton’s masterpiece. In it, he explains Christ’s place in history, asserting that the Christian myth carries more weight than other mythologies for one simple reason—it is the truth.

well narrated audio of a masterpiece.

As I am aware,there are 3 choices of narration for this great book.1-Dale Alquest at the chesterton society,2-the other narrator here at audible and 3-this new one with john robbins.Dale Alquests reading is very good but a british accent realy is a plus for a british chesterton.The other audible narator is WAY to fast.So this one realy is the best.The sample clip may seem like he has a lisp,which he does a little but he reads very well and at a slow and proper pace with great expression.{note the diference of book time between the two}.Overall ,this is a masterpiece.

Amazingly fresh thinking, in a very old book

Would you consider the audio edition of The Everlasting Man to be better than the print version?

I have not read the printed version, but I did enjoy very much the 'feel' added by the reader. His voice had a rustic feel that added to the ambiance of the book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

C.S. Lewis used the right phrase, in that the book 'baptises' your intellect. The book has an amazing effect of drawing you out into a different way of thinking, that frankly I found refreshing or more real.

Any additional comments?

If you enjoy Lewis, you will probably enjoy this book. If you enjoy philosophically thinking about man's view of history, you will probably enjoy the book. I love both, and I enjoyed it a lot.

Sheer brilliance

I've always enjoyed Chesterton's poetic genius and his bird's eye view perspective on just about everything he puts his mind to. The Everlasting Man is certainly one of his masterpieces. Not only that, it is incredibly relevant for the current modern way the world is going.
