The Everlasting Man | G.K. Chesterton

Prefatory Note

"This book needs a preliminary note that its scope be not misunderstood. The view suggested is historical rather than theological... Much of it is devoted to many sorts of Pagans rather than any sort of Christians; and its thesis is that those who say that Christ stands side by side with similar myths, and his religion side by side with similar religions, are only repeating a very stale formula contradicted by a very striking fact. To suggest this I have not needed to go much beyond matters known to us all; I make no claim to learning; and have to depend for some things, as has rather become the fashion, on those who are more learned."
