Title: EVERLASTING MAN, THE - DISC 4 OF 10
Considered by many to be Chesterton's greatest masterpiece of all his writings, this is his view of world history as informed by the Incarnations. Beginning with the origin of man and the various religious attitudes throughout history, Chesterton shows how the fulfillment of all man's desires takes place in the person of Christ and in Christ's Church. Chesterton propounds the thesis 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." And with all the brilliance and devastating irony, so characteristic of his best writing, Chesterton gradually and tempestuously tears to shreds that "very stale formula" and triumphantly proclaims in vivid language the glory and unanswerable logic that very striking fact. Here is the genius of Chesterton at its best. Disc 4 of 10 includes: Part One, Chapter 4 (continued), and Part One, Chapter 5, and Part One, Chapter 6.
