    Considered by many to be Chesterton’s masterpiece, this book declares his comprehensive view of world history as informed by the Incarnation. Retelling man’s story from the very beginning, he shows how all of men’s 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 quite apart.

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

    Yes


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The "voice" and comprehensive of G. K. Chesterton's thoughts.


    What does Thomas Whitworth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Thomas Whitworth's delivery inflects the reason and the faith of Chesterton. His expressive retelling of Chesterton's illustrative material was quite entertaining.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Chesterton was a gifted intellect versed in history, logic, and multiple worldviews. He writes deeply and poetically and should be read incrementally to be thoroughly understood and appreciated.


    Any additional comments?

    All universalists need to listen to Chesterton's reasons for the uniqueness and unshaken faith of Christendom in apposition to other religious and philosophic world views.
