Stefan Rudnicki, a favorite of mine, reads part of the story, but the rest is read by Gabrielle.

  • Father Brown

These four stories test Father Brown in many ways, creating headaches a plenty. However, Father Brown is nothing if not redoubtable and whilst Chesterton's stories are, in his own words, "very slight and improbable", his method is all his own. Bill Wallis captures perfectly the mood and tone of Father Brown in this collection.

A collection of four vignettes; not a full length book like the other Father Brown mysteries.

 In this remarkable recording, C. S. Lewis shows why millions of readers have acclaimed him the greatest spokesman for Christianity in the 20th century. In a resonant, baritone voice, Lewis explores the nature of the four Greek words that are translated love in English: storge (affection), philia (friendship), eros (sexual or romantic love) and agape (selfless love).

If you could sum up The Four Loves in three words, what would they be?

Why ruin greatness?

What did you like best about this story?

Why is Charles Colson interjecting long, vapid commentary amid some of the greatest modern Christian thought? His interruptions, and the saccharin background music his producers added in, nearly ruin an otherwise priceless reading by CS Lewis of his own work.
