I just read The Everlasting Man, as suggested...

This work does endeed mention Jesus in the Betlehem, and Christmas

I kind of enjoy reading his arguments where he compared Catholicism with Confucianism, or Buddhism. Made me proud of being a catholic.

Although have to say, his words are sometimes hard to follow

His style can take some getting used to.  He is, in the end, a Victorian-era writer.  Also, unless you are familiar with the period, some of his jokes can be hard to understand.

May I suggest that you read Joseph Pearce's biography of Chesterton?  I find that I have a much better understanding of the man's works now that I have some knowledge of his life.
