January 2018 Father Brown of the Church of Rome. Selected Mystery Stories. by G.K.Chesterton. I found BBC versions of the Father Brown Mysteries to be very well-cast and engaging. What I also like is that the Father Brown character (played by Mark Williams) never shies away from an opportunity to save souls and to reflect his belief in an just, merciful, and loving God.

The book, compiled by John Peterson, is a collection of Chesterton's Father Brown stories published in American serials in the 1920s (though the BBC versions are set in the 1950s). The style is readable and much in the fashion of Arthur Conan Doyle. Another remarkable thing I noted was that Mark William's portrayal of Father Brown is very faithful to Chesterton's character, even down to facial expressions and mannerisms.

Both the book and the BBC series are great.
