The Ball and the Cross


The Ball and the Cross is one of G. K. Chesterton’s best novels. In this comical clash of cultures, a passionate Christian and a dogmatic atheist battle each other against the backdrop of an unbelieving and indifferent world.

“What could possibly express your philosophy and my philosophy better than the shape of that cross and the shape of this ball? This globe is reasonable; that cross is unreasonable. That cross is essentially a collision, a crash, a struggle in stone. Pah! The very shape of it is a contradiction in terms.”
