Father Brown

Contains both Chesterton’s Innocence of Father Brown and The Wisdom of Father Brown

There are a lot of wonderful mystery, crime solving, and procedural shows airing on Television these days.  Among them is Father Brown, a BBC show airing in the United States on PBS.  Based on the stories written by Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936), Father Brown stands apart from many sleuths in that his primary concern is the soul’s of all involved in each case he encounters.

Justice matters, but putting someone in prison is not Father Brown’s primary goal or concern.

If this sounds reminiscent of a more recent Television sleuth, Father Dowling, it may intrigue some to read this nugget from Ralph McInerny’s Obituary in the Telegraph:

McInerny fashioned Dowling as a spiritual heir to GK Chesterton’s Father Brown, compassionate but not entirely worldly. “His secular interest in crime,” noted one critic, “is merely a mask for his deeper concern for the spiritual welfare of the victims and criminals involved.”
