    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.

    J. Glemby says: "well narrated audio of a masterpiece."
    "Amazingly fresh thinking, in a very old book"

    Story
    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.
