I began reading G.K. Chesterton's "Everlasting Man" last night because it's referenced by so many people (even C.S. Lewis references it in his books). As does Lewis with "Mere Christianity," Chesterton says his book is for non-Christians, atheists, agnostics, etc. But I find that both books are must reads for Christians as well because they arm us, the prepare us for our teenager's questions, our co-workers cynicisms, our fallen friends agnostic views.

Chesterton writes with much more humor than Lewis. He opens his introduction with the line, "There are two ways of getting home; and one of them is to stay there." Another line I remember, especially today, "Some say the war has discredited the Church, they might as well say that the Ark was discredited by the Flood."

I'm looking forward to a good read.
