I may explode from the overload of awesomeness! Chesterton illustrated by Ben Hatke!
A sinister spaceship captures an innocent monk … a pugnacious atheist and a devout Catholic vow to duel to the death … and a cross-country chase ensues!
When two men decide to fight for their respective beliefs, they discover to their astonishment that an unbelieving world won’t let them, and they find themselves partners and fugitives from the law in this steampunk satire.
Penned by G.K. Chesterton in 1909, this whimsical and biting novel eerily foreshadows a world in which “tolerance” is the only god and all those who believe ideas are worth dying for are forced to stand together to defend freedom of speech and belief.
This new *slightly* abridged edition of The Ball and the Cross from Chesterton Press contains splendid illustrations by Ben Hatke, author of the best-selling Angel in the Waters and Zita the Spacegirl.
Chesterton you know. Ben Hatke you might not. The guy is great! Go here, right away, get this book! Way to go, Regina Doman and Chesterton Press, for scoring this coup!
Hey are you still reading this? Go get the book! You won’t regret it!
