The Everlasting Man is a history of mankind, Christ and Christianity written by G. K. Chesterton. It is to some extent a deliberate rebuttal of H. G. Wells' "Outline of History," disputing Wells' portrayals of human life and civilization as a seamless development from animal life and of Jesus Christ as merely another charismatic figure. Whereas "Orthodoxy" detailed Chesterton's own spiritual journey, in this book he tries to illustrate the spiritual journey of mankind, or at least of Western civilization.
