Titles By Chesterton Books
This is the original 1933 edition of G. K. Chesterton's study of Saint Thomas Aquinas. Chesterton's Saint Aquinas is a man of mystery. Born into a noble family, Aquinas chose the life of a humble friar. Lumbering and shy, his classmates dubbed him "the Dumb Ox" - but he grew up to lead a revolution in Christian thought. Possessed of the rarest brilliance, he found the highest truth in the humblest object, and led a life of almost unparalleled genius.
Philosopher and literary critic, as well as creator of the popular detective Father Brown, G. K. Chesterton takes us on a journey through history and human civilization in this classic work of lay theology, arguing—against the views of some of his contemporaries, H. G. Wells notable among them—that Jesus was simply a historical figure, albeit an extraordinary one, and Christianity is no different than any other religion. A book that had profound influence on C. S. Lewis, author of the Chronicles of Narnia series, The Everlasting Man is considered one of the great modern examples of Christian apologetics.
