Summary

In this book, Chesterton replies to H.G. Wells’ argument for historical and scientific materialism. Wells considered Jesus Christ no more than a remarkable person, but Chesterton finds that a merely remarkable person could never have had such a wide- sweeping influence on people’s lives as the centuries passed. Chesterton could only conclude that something more than nature was at work in history. C.S. Lewis cited The Everlasting Man as one of the books that tipped him towards his conversion to Christianity, and it even made his list of the top ten books that most shaped his personal philosophy.
