Course Description

Have you ever wondered what Christianity might look like from the outside? G.K. Chesterton recommends this imaginative exercise to any critics whose familiarity with Christianity has bred contempt for the Faith. Written as a response to H.G. Well's Outline of History, The Everlasting Man tackles Well's dual contentions that Man is a mere animal and that Christ was a mere man. The result is a literary masterpiece that C.S. Lewis considered "the best popular defense of the full Christian position." Take this class and find out why.
