Father Brown and the Ten Commandments: Selected Mystery Stories by G.K. Chesterton
Ignatius Press, 2017
255 pages, softcover, $16.95
While you may have read these detective stories before, they probably weren’t arranged as they are here — with a story for each of the Ten Commandments, and they didn’t include John Peterson’s generous and helpful footnotes to help explain many of Chesterton’s historical references. Readers are once again introduced to Father Brown, and the distinctive role that the Catholic faith plays in helping him to solve crimes.
If you’re a fan of mysteries, or of Chesterton, you’ll enjoy this edited selection of his tales
