Fr. Brown Book

"The Blue Cross" Study Edition by Nancy Carpentier Brown.

To be honest, I'm not a big fan of mystery stories and, in fact, other than Fr. Brown stories and the talented John Peterson's excellent short stories in Gilbert Magazine, I never read 'em. I have read "The Blue Cross," though, and I trust Ms. Brown to produce a good read. This is tempting.

"G. K. Chesterton was one of the greatest Catholic writers of the 20th century, and more and more people today are discovering the treasure in his works. This guide focuses on the very first "Father Brown Mystery" that he wrote.

"Mrs. Brown has written a comprehensive study guide with vocabulary, discussion questions, and word study. Your student will find much food for thought while becoming acquainted with this great writer.

"The study guide includes the complete text of the story along with illustrations by Sean Fitzpatrick."

Thanks for the mention. But it isn't me that produces the "good read" it is Chesterton. All I've done is add some notes, some biographical stuff, and a study guide, so you can get into the meat of the story (like the stuff on reason). Good for book clubs, Chesterton clubs/societies or students wanting more of a lit. analysis of it.
But in any case, it is always fun to read Chesterton!
