Description

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.
