Overview

Unpacking the Apostles' Creed step-by-step, this rediscovered classic by Ronald Knox offers a clear, loving, and witty example of Anglo-Catholic thought at its best.

During the WWII bombing of London, Ronald Knox—a priest, radio personality, detective novelist, scholar, and Catholic convert—found himself the chaplain of a girls' school where students were being sheltered. When his existing homilies were exhausted, Knox began to write new ones for his students based on the Apostles' Creed. The homilies were so well-received that they were later published as The Creed in Slow Motion

With resurgent interest in the life and writings of Knox, as well as forthcoming changes to the English translation of the Creed, the new edition of this classic could not be more timely.

Meet the Author

Monsignor Ronald Knox (1888-1957) was ordained an Anglican priest in 1912 but left this in 1917 when he converted to Catholicism, an event influenced by Knox's friendship with G.K. Chesterton. Throughout his life Knox wrote detective stories, completed a full English translation of the Latin Vulgate of the Bible, and explained his spiritual journey in two privately printed books, Apologia (1917) and A Spiritual Aeneid (1918).
