The Everlasting Man is a two-part history of mankind, Christ, and Christianity, by G. K. Chesterton. It is Chesterton's deliberate rebuttal of H. G. Wells' Outline of History, which embraced the evolutionary origins of humanity and denied the divinity of Jesus. In Orthodoxy Chesterton detailed his own spiritual journey, in The Everlasting Man he illustrates the spiritual journey of humanity. Gilbert Keith Chesterton was an English prolific and diverse writer whose subjects include philosophy, ontology, poetry, playwriting, Christian apologetics, and fiction, including detective fiction. Chesterton is well known for his reasoned apologetics, as a political thinker and orthodox Christian.
