The Everlasting Man

(G.K. Chesterton)

This may surprise, but I'm writing to you concerning your review of Gilbert Chesterton's "Everlasting Man." Your thorough analysis, dovetailing with C.S. Lewis' praise, has convinced me that this book is worth the while. Thank you for your clarity, energy, and accuracy.

Have a nice day,

I found your page on Chesterton's book The Everlasting Man. You may like to know that there is an etext copy of the book available on my Chesterton page (along with many others):

You may want to add alink from your page.


P.S. I just read your paper on abortion. Excellent work, and carefully argued. Now I really must get back to work!!

Hi--I am a librarian at Prince of Peace Church in Phoenix, Arizona. I am impressed with the review you did for amazon. com. I wonder if you would mind if I used all, or parts of it, as a review in our monthly "Messenger" I would also like to give it to my Share-A-Book group, as I believe it would provide readers of it an excellent jumping-off point for a better reading of Chesterton's book.

Thank you for writing this and sharing it by placing it in this medium.
