"John Peterson is the world's greatest expert on Chesterton's famous priest-detective. His presentation of these particular Father Brown stories only adds to their craftiness and profundity."
-- Dale Ahlquist, President, American Chesterton Society
"Chesterton wore many hats--as an apologist, a biographer, a critic, a journalist and more. For many he is best known and loved as the inventor of the incomparable Father Brown. It is, therefore, a joy to see this new vintage collection of Father Brown stories brought together by the venerable and veteran Chestertonian John Peterson."
--Joseph Pearce, Author, Wisdom and Innocence: The Life of G.K. Chesterton
"This is an excellent edition of selected Father Brown stories and a fitting tribute to Chesterton's lovable sleuth and saver of souls. Using the Ten Commandments as a template, the stories are carefully annotated for the modern reader, introducing Chesterton's sparkling English wit, charm and insight to a new generation of fans."
---- Fiorella De Maria, Author, The Sleeping Witness: A Father Gabriel Mystery
"Father Brown stories stand in stark contrast to twenty-first century mysteries that portray a hopelessly disordered world. For Chesterton, the world is messy because of sin, but its Creator is actively engaged in it."
---- T.M. Doran, Author,Toward the Gleam
