Has religion, the church, or Christianity become convoluted? confusing? disappointing?

We live in a time where church attendance is declining, where faith has become so deeply intertwined with politics, ideologies, theologies and personal opinions that it's seemingly impossible to find Truth. In all of this, we have lost sight of the center of it all—that is, the utterly enchanting person of Jesus Christ.

In G.K. Chesterton's Everlasting Man, the reader will be brought back to the very foundation of the Christian faith: that is, Jesus—His life, death and resurrection.

G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was arguably the greatest writer and thinker of the 20th century—his keen intellect, wit, spirit and wisdom would go on to influence writers like J. R. R. Tolkien, Ernest Hemingway, C. S. Lewis, T.S. Eliot and many more. Chesterton's ability to broach controversial and diverse topics with a sense of humor and the use of paradox has made him one of the most influential voices in both Christian and secular spheres.

In Everlasting Man, Chesterton brilliantly examines the history of man from a Christ-centered perspective, appealing to the mind and heart as he points to the power, truth and supremacy of Jesus by exploring:

  • The uniqueness of Jesus' claims
  • Jesus' ability to unite religion and philosophy
  • Jesus' radical and shocking teaching
  • Jesus' affirmation of human goodness
  • The hope of Jesus' resurrection for all mankind
  • Chesterton writes, "There are two ways of getting home; and one of them is to stay there. The other is to walk 'round the whole world till we come back to the same place." Everlasting Man will lead us home—to the person of Jesus, to the foundation of faith, and perhaps even to the doors of the Church.
