* AmateurSleuth: Father Brown.

to:

* AllLovingHero: Father Brown, appropriately for a priest, has a deep sense of ''agape,'' spiritual love for all people. He recognizes human monsters when he sees them, but even more so, he recognizes people's capacity for goodness and redemption.
* AmateurSleuth: Father Brown. Technically all of his training is in theology; he just happens to have a keen insight into the criminal mind thanks to his experience listening to Confession.


Added DiffLines:

* GoodShepherd: Father Brown, a reflection of GK Chesterton's Catholic faith, in literary form.
