The Ball and the Cross

Written by G. K. Chesterton | Narrated by Gildart Jackson
Clashing over opposing views, Catholic MacIan and atheist Turnbull propose a duel to the death. But what they get instead is a series of humorous adventures as they try to find the perfect place to kill each other. A witty, whimsical listen from a classic author who said the “test of a good religion” is “whether you can joke about it”!


Evan MacIan is a tall, dark-haired, blue-eyed Scottish highlander and a devout Roman Catholic. James Turnbull is a short, red-haired, gray-eyed Lowlander and a devout but naïve atheist. The two meet when MacIan smashes the window of the street office where Turnbull publishes an atheist journal. This act of rage occurs when MacIan sees posted on the shop’s window a sheet that blasphemes the Virgin Mary, presumably implying she was an adulteress who gave birth to an illegitimate Jesus. When MacIan challenges Turnbull to a duel to the death, Turnbull is overjoyed. For twenty years no one had paid the slightest attention to his Bible bashing. Now at last someone is taking him seriously!
