About Book

Book Description
Evan Maclan is a passionate and fiery young Catholic. He is outraged one day by an editorial he reads in The Atheist and vents his anger by smashing the window of the paper's office. He then challenges the editor, Turnbull, to a duel. The feuding men are thwarted at every turn in their attempt to find a suitable place for their fight. While the search goes on they continue their theological debate. They eventually arrive at a position of acceptance and mutual understanding before the story reaches its extremely powerful conclusion.

Because it was the quickest cut to you, cried Evan, stamping. "Stand up and fight, you crapulous coward. You dirty lunatic, stand up, will you? Have you any weapons here?"

About the Author
G K Chesterton has been described as one of the most unjustly neglected writers of our time. Born in 1874, he became a journalist and later began writing books and pamphlets. His work includes novels, literary and social criticism, political papers and spiritual essays in a style characterised by enormous wit, paradox, humility and wonder.

He converted to Catholicism in 1922 and he explores the nature of spirituality in many of his books and essays, including the mighty Orthodoxy.

Chesterton is one of the few authors who are genuinely timeless and whose work has as much relevance today as when it was written.
