The innocence of Father Brown by G. K Chesterton( )

541 editions published between 1900 and 2022 in 17 languages and held by 6,725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Father Brown, the author has entered upon a new literary field in a series of detective stories. Strange to say, his hero is not a Sherlock Holmes or a Lecoq, but a gentle little parish priest who uses his knowledge of human nature gained in his religious work to unravel mysterious crimes which have baffled the police. The stories are of the dashing and brilliant kind that Stevenson invented - exciting tales told in artistic manner by a first-class literary hand
Orthodoxy by G. K Chesterton( )

393 editions published between 1900 and 2022 in 13 languages and held by 4,912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For G.K. Chesterton, orthodoxy carries us into the land of romance, right action, and revolution. In Orthodoxy, a classic in religious autobiography, he tells of his pilgrimage there by way of the doctrines of Christianity set out in the Apostles' Creed. Where science seeks to explain all things in terms of calculation and necessary law, Chesterton argues on behalf of the Christian doctrines of mystery and free will. Sanity, he says, belongs to the poet who accepts the romance and drama of these beliefs rather than to the logician who does not. This sanity is not static. It does not mean merely learning the right doctrines and then lapsing into a refined meditation on them. Chesterton dismisses such an inactive belief as "the greatest disaster of the nineteenth century." For him, right thinking is a waste without right action. For Chesterton the populist, political ction often spells revolution. He discovers in the doctrines of original sin and the divinity of Christ ever-present seedbeds of revolt in the face of the tyrannies of money and power." --
Heretics by G. K Chesterton( )

287 editions published between 1900 and 2021 in 9 languages and held by 4,785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nothing more strangely indicates an enormous and silent evil of modern society than the extraordinary use which is made nowadays of the word "orthodox" In former days the heretic was proud of not being a heretic. It was the kingdoms of the world and the police and the judges who were heretics"--Page [4] of cover. This 1905 collection of articles focuses on the era's "heretics": those who pride themselves in their superiority to conservative views. G.K. Chesterton's companion book to Orthodoxy assesses avant-garde artists and writers (including Kipling, Shaw, Wells, and Whistler) with the author's characteristic wisdom and good humor
The man who knew too much by G. K Chesterton( )

The wisdom of Father Brown by G. K Chesterton( )

221 editions published between 1900 and 2021 in 4 languages and held by 4,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twelve short stories which include THE PARADISE OF THIEVES, where in Tuscany, a banker and his daughter seem to be in great danger as they plan to travel mountain roads where brigands are rumoured to attack. Going the same way is an armed, flamboyant poet called Muscari, and Father Brown, who is there when trouble does, indeed, occur. Then, Father Brown is involved in the theatrical world in THE MAN IN THE PASSAGE. A beautiful actress has rival admirers, but when she is stabbed to death, he solves the mystery of who murdered her and how the deed was done
The man who was Thursday : a nightmare by G. K Chesterton( Book )

272 editions published between 1907 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 3,631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ostensibly a tale of mystery and espionage, this story about a club of anarchists in turn-of-the-century London is also--on a deeper level--a vehicle for social, religious, and philosophical commentary
A miscellany of men by G. K Chesterton( )

107 editions published between 1910 and 2021 in 3 languages and held by 3,597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covering topics from literature to philosophy, history to social criticism, this is a snapshot of thought on 20th-century Europe (and the world) by one of Europe's sharpest wits and ablest pens. With chapter titles ranging from 'The Miser and His Friends' to 'The Red Reactionary', from 'The Separatist and Sacred Things' to 'The New Theologian' and 'The Romantic in the Rain', this volume includes 39 brief sketches of individuals, each one of whom illustrates an aspect of contemporary society. Social, historical, and religious thought all figure prominently in this book, making it of great use in any study of the literary, religious, and social aspects of early 20th-century England and Europe generally. It will be of interest to students and scholars of the essay in English literature. It is a fine introduction to Chesterton's social criticism, which remains unique for its willingness to criticise some of the uncomfortable truths about capitalism without straying toward an inhuman bureaucratic socialism
The Victorian Age in literature by G. K Chesterton( Book )

234 editions published between 1900 and 2022 in 6 languages and held by 3,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This early work by G.K. Chesterton was originally published in 1913. Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London in 1874. He studied at the Slade School of Art, and upon graduating began to work as a freelance journalist. Over the course of his life, his literary output was incredibly diverse and highly prolific, ranging from philosophy and ontology to art criticism and detective fiction. However, he is probably bestremembered for his Christian apologetics, most notably in Orthodoxy (1908) and The Everlasting Man (1925)."
The club of Queer Trades by G. K Chesterton( )

238 editions published between 1900 and 2020 in 9 languages and held by 3,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six whimsical short stories by brilliant, witty, English author, poet and critic. Improbable plots, marvelously funny episodes, evocative descriptions of late Victorian London distinguish delightful tales focusing on a club devoted to completely original and unusual professions. First republication to include all 32 of Chesterton's own original illustrations
The man who was Thursday : a nightmare by G. K Chesterton( )

102 editions published between 1900 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,098 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chesterton's masterpiece is a surreal, psychologically thrilling novel which centres on seven anarchists in turn of the century London who call themselves by the names of days of the week. But events soon cast a doubt upon their real identities, for Thursday is not really the passionate young poet he appears to be, but a Scotland Yard Detective
Tremendous trifles by G. K Chesterton( )

145 editions published between 1900 and 2021 in 3 languages and held by 3,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The thirty-nine short essays in this book are the result (so the author says) of sitting still and letting marvels and adventures settle on him like flies. But though he does not travel to the ends of the earth in search of adventures, he does seem to get around. He goes to Germany and France, wanders about England: even walks when he is tired of waiting for a train. The book first appeared in 1909 and is "dated" in the pleasantest way possible. The sense talked is as good sense -- and as surprising -- as ever, the nonsense still as delightful: only the plain ordinary statements of fact have grown a little misty with distance. English trains, readers will note, do not seem to have changed at all, but when Mr. Chesterton takes a cab it is a small shick to read 'the driver cracked his whip' and realize it was the sort of cab that really went by horsepower. Like another set of Thirty-nine Articles, this book is concerned with Chesterton's faith, not directly his faith in God, but with his faith in the wonder and delight to be found in things and people which the rest of us so blandly call 'ordinary.'" --
The ballad of the White Horse by G. K Chesterton( )

141 editions published between 1900 and 2021 in English and held by 2,896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Ballad of the White Horse is one of the last great epic poems in the English language. On the one hand it describes King Alfred’s battle against the Danes in 878. On the other hand it is a timeless allegory about the ongoing battle between Christianity and the forces of nihilistic heathenism. Filled with colorful characters, thrilling battles and mystical visions, it is as lively as it is profound. Chesterton incorporates brilliant imagination, atmosphere, moral concern, chronological continuity, wisdom and fancy. He makes his stanzas reverberate with sound, and hurries his readers into the heart of the battle. This deluxe volume is the definitive edition of the poem. It exactly reproduces the 1928 edition with Robert Austin’s beautiful woodcuts, and includes a thorough introduction and wonderful endnotes by Sister Bernadette Sheridan, from her 60 years researching the poem."
The Napoleon of Notting Hill by G. K Chesterton( Book )

150 editions published between 1904 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comical futurist fantasy, first published in 1904, about a tradition-loving suburban London community of the 1980s at war with its modernizing neighbors. Chesterton's splendid storytelling gifts, his love of medievalism and heroism, and his sympathies for the plight of small nations trying to remain independent are strongly in evidence. 7 illustrations by W. Graham Robertson. New Introduction by Martin Gardner

Manalive by G. K Chesterton( )

133 editions published between 1910 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 2,622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Perhaps the most light-hearted of all Chesterton's "serious" works, Manalive pits a group of disillusioned young people against Mr. Innocent Smith, a bubbly, high-spirited gentleman who literally falls into their midst. Accused of murder and denounced for repeatedly marrying his wife and attempting to live in various houses (all of which turn out to be his own), Smith prompts his newfound acquaintances to recognize an important idea: that life is worth living

165 editions published between 1901 and 2022 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What I saw in America by Gilbert Keith Chesterton( )

78 editions published between 1922 and 2021 in 3 languages and held by 2,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What I Saw in America is Father Brown creator G.K. Chesterton's classic travelogue about his 1921 tour of America. The bitingly sardonic author pulls no punches with his wry observations on US culture, giving us his take on everything American from Pennsylvania to Prohibition."--
