During the height of World War II, Msgr. Ronald Knox-priest, radio personality, detective novelist, Oxford scholar, and Catholic convert-unexpectedly found himself chaplain to the members of a girls' school who were being sheltered from the Blitz. The homilies he preached to the girls, which were based largely on The Apostles' Creed, became so popular that they were later published as The Creed in Slow Motion. Opening the Creed step-by-step, this rediscovered Knox classic offers a clear, loving, and witty example of British Catholic thought at its best. Book jacket.

Author Biography

Monsignor Ronald Knox (1888-1957) was ordained an Anglican priest in 1912 but converted to Catholicism in 1917, an event influenced by Knox's friendship with G. K. Chesterton. Knox wrote numerous books, including Enthusiasm, Essays in Satire, and several detective novels, and completed a full translation of the Latin Vulgate into English.
