Highly influential in C. S. Lewis’ conversion from atheism to Christianity, The Everlasting Man continues to inspire new generations of readers.

Considered by many to be Chesterton’s greatest masterpiece, this book 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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, New York Times bestselling author

  • “A great carillonade of Christian verities.”

    National Review, “100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Century”

  • “Probably the best Chesterton has written. It is so rich in good sense, wit, and in plain, profound and cheerful truth that almost every page deserves a review to itself.”


  • “[In] the mood of clarity the author creates for us…Mr. Chesterton performs a miracle which comes well in this sophisticated age of scorn.”

    Boston Transcript

  • “Here, as so often in Chesterton, we sense a lived, awakened faith. All that he writes derives from a keen intellect guided by the heart’s own knowledge.”


  • “Derek Perkins’s accessible delivery perfectly suits this dense work, which is said to have converted C. S. Lewis to Christianity from atheism. Although written in 1925, The Everlasting Man sounds surprisingly contemporary. Perkins’ style deftly captures Chesterton’s quest to identify what, if anything, makes a human uniquely human. Audio is the ideal format to fully appreciate Chesterton’s complexity…Listeners will be pleased to hear that the wit and wisdom found in the author’s Father Brown mysteries are also present here.”
