Father Brown is a small, round Catholic priest with a highly developed understanding of the criminal mind, derived from his time listening to men confess their sins. His diminutive presence disguises a powerful intellect and ability to solve the strangest crimes in the most fascinating manner. This collection of stories draws upon all five Father Brown books and demonstrates the considerable range of those tales. From the unparalleled invention of "The Blue Cross" to the bizarre mystery of "The Blast of the Book", these stories contain as much wisdom as they do wonder.

Following Thomas Jefferson from the drafting of the Declaration of Independence to his retirement in Monticello, Joseph J. Ellis unravels the contradictions of the Jeffersonian character. He gives us the slaveholding libertarian who was capable of decrying mescegenation while maintaing an intimate relationship with his slave, Sally Hemmings; the enemy of government power who exercisdd it audaciously as president; the visionarty who remained curiously blind to the inconsistencies in his nature. American Sphinx is a marvel of scholarship, a delight to read, and an essential gloss on the Jeffersonian legacy.

CHESTERTON — 50 Books in One: 22 Non-Fiction, 11 Fiction, 8 Biographies, 4 Poetry, 1 Play, 3 Critiques, 1 Introduction — Over 2.3 Million Words in one E-Book — Includes an Introduction to Gilbert Keith Chesterton — Includes an Active Index to all books and 50 Table of Contents for each book — Includes Illustrations by Claude Monet Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936) was an English writer. He wrote on philosophy, ontology, poetry, plays, journalism, public lectures and debates, literary and art criticism, biography, Christian apologetics, and fiction, including fantasy and detective fiction. Chesterton is often referred to as the "prince of paradox". Whenever possible, Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, and allegories—first carefully turning them inside out. Chesterton is well known for his reasoned apologetics and even some of those who disagree with him have recognized the universal appeal of such works as Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man. Chesterton, as a political thinker, cast aspersions on both progressivism and conservatism, saying, "The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected." Chesterton routinely referred to himself as an "orthodox" Christian, and came to identify such a position more and more with Catholicism, eventually converting to Roman Catholicism from High Church Anglicanism. George Bernard Shaw, Chesterton's "friendly enemy" said of him, "He was a man of colossal genius".
