About the Event


Famed as the book that C.S. Lewis credits with "baptizing his intellect," The Everlasting Man challenges readers to closely examine modern preconceptions about history, science, and religion. Written in 1925 by the essayist G.K. Chesterton, famed for his humor, prescience, and impact on thinkers ranging from C.S. Lewis to Mahatma Gandhi, it engages not what but how we should think about claims regarding history and human nature. This 3-part reading group will examine this classic work for insights on religion and history still relevant a century later.


Mondays, May 1 & 8, 2023, 8 pm - 9 pm PT / 11 pm - 12 mn ET

Each session has its own registration page, please sign up for the session you can attend in.
