Publisher's Summary

Highly influential in C. S. Lewis' conversion from atheism to Christianity, The Everlasting Man continues to inspire new generations of readers and listeners.
Considered by many to be Chesterton's greatest masterpiece, this audiobook declares his comprehensive view of world history as informed by the Incarnation. Retelling mankind's story from the very beginning, he shows how all human desires are fulfilled in the person of Christ and Christ's church. With his characteristic brilliance and irony, he argues that Christianity is not just a religion to stand beside other religions, for the fact of the Incarnation sets it apart.
One of the most original and controversial theological works ever written, The Everlasting Man offers a commanding perspective of world history and aims to restore our sense of wonder in the universe, our god, and ourselves.

No, not better, but a wonderful companion to it. The narrator is a joy to listen to. By far the best Audible version of this masterpiece.

Who was your favorite character and why?

This is non-fiction, but obviously the author himself.

What about Derek Perkins’s performance did you like?


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

Yes, yes, yes, cry for joy, and because I really wished I had read this book earlier in life. Would have wasted a lot less time.

Any additional comments?

I'm glad Audible fixed the problem on this page which made it impossible to add this book to my cart. Hope the glitch is fixed for good, as this rendition is EXCELLENT.

condensed, practical, but exhaustive

Chesterton fills a Christian (myself) not adequately, but abundantly on the vital points of history as pertaining to the rise of Christendom while demonstrating the fallacies many of us are taught (by rationalists he calls them), and explains the nature of the youth of the church through struggles a protestant does not hear about. this is ammunition.
