Dover Publications Favorite Father Brown Stories

Critic, author and debunker extraordinaire, G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) delighted in probing the ambiguities of Christian theology. A number of his most successful attempts at combining first-rate fiction with acute social observation appear in this original selection from his best detective stories featuring the priest-sleuth Father Brown.

A true TREAURE! G.K. Chesterton is a favorite in our home school! Father Brown is a character the reader can respect and love. This author is so thoughtful in his writings and a master of telling a good mystery.

Exceptional! Upon first reading, you think that Father Brown is incredibly clever and observant. Then, upon further reflection, you recognize that Chesterton is the true genius here.I'd rank these equal to or better than any Holmes mysteries. Very British, and with a large vocabulary, but riveting.
