G.K. Chesterton is most notable for his creation of Father Brown. This unlooked for, and often unwelcome, detective is actually not a detective. But rather, an individual trained to think as criminals think, for he has heard so many of their confessions. He knows how their minds work, and can piece together many things that others cannot.
Today’s story is from the first collection of Father Brown Stories, the Innocence of Father Brown.
And now, The Hammer of God, by G.K. Chesterton.
