Item description for Ronald Knox As Apologist: Wit, Laughter and the Popish Creed by Milton Walsh...

Overview
Throughout the first half of the 20th century, both as an Anglican and as a Roman Catholic, Ronald Knox was a well-known part of the English literary landscape. He was a favored preacher for occasions great and small; his articles on a host of topics found a place in the newspapers and monthly literary magazines; his voice was heard often on the BBC. Most significant was the tide of books that flowed from his pen and found a wide readership in Great Britain and the USA. In this book, Milton Walsh, an expert on Knox's writing, has analyzed and provided ample quotations from the most significant writings of Knox that fall under the genre of apologetics. Knox was a superb apologist because as a priest he was a man of deep faith, and as a writer he had a wonderful way of expressing the Christian truths in an elegant and clear language. Knox was also a man with a grand sense of humor and a keen wit, as well as empathy and kindness, and both his humor and charity are captured well in these writings. Ronald Knox stands alongside G. K. Chesterton, C.S. Lewis, and Evelyn Waugh as a great spiritual and literary British writer whose works are once again receiving wide readership and appreciation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ronald Knox As Apologist: Wit, Laughter and the Popish Creed?

Tehe School of "Hard" Knox  Jul 12, 2007
I bought this book on the spur of the moment, thinking: "Why not one more book about my favorite author?", thinking it would be an abreviated anthology of some of his wittier or more original passages in this field. What I found was a very readable and well footnoted analysis of this complex and deep personality, organized along natural and thoughtful lines. I never once caught myself asking: "Now, why did Walsh say that?"
For someone having only heard of Msgr. Knox, it's an easy road map to direct further reading of the originals.
I thoroughly enjoyed it.
