This premium quality edition contains the complete and unabridged original classic version of The Wisdom of Father Brown, including twelve stories featuring G.K Chesterton's mystery-solving priest, printed on heavyweight 60#, bright white paper in a large 6"x9" format, with page headers and a fully laminated full-color cover featuring an original design.

Mystery fans unfamiliar with Father Brown may find Chesterton's stories a bit different. Many of the stories don't quite fit either the standard ("Whodunit?") or inverted ("Howcatchem?") styles common to the mystery genre, and Father Brown is frequently less concerned with the apprehension of the wrongdoer than with getting him to understand, and admit, the error of his ways.

With his powers of observation and attention to details, and a knowledge of crime and criminals derived in no small part from his years as a priest hearing confessions, Father Brown frequently finds the solution through a strictly rational reasoning process more concerned with psychological, spiritual and philosophic truths than with scientific investigation.

This particular volume contains twelve of Chesterton's original Father Brown adventures, published as individual short stories and first collected and published in book form under the title The Wisdom of Father Brown in 1914.

G.K. Chesterton...

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) was an English writer, lay theologian, poet, philosopher, dramatist, journalist, orator, literary critic, and biographer, best known today for his Father Brown mystery stories and such social commentary as "Heretics," "Orthodoxy," and "The Everlasting Man."
