The Wisdom of Father BrownLarge Print - 2014
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 keen powers of observation, attention to detail, and a knowledge of crime and criminals derived in no small part from his years as a priest hearing confessions, Father Brown often finds the solution through a strictly rational reasoning process more concerned with psychological, spiritual and philosophic truths than with scientific investigaion. This particular volume contains twelve of Chesterton's original Father Brown adventures, first published as individual short stories and collected and published in book form under the title "The Wisdom of Father Brown" in 1914.
