Item description for The Hidden Stream: The Mysteries of the Christian Faith by Ronald Knox...
This book is a collection of stimulating, informal discussions in which Msgr. Knox re-examines some of the fundamental precepts of the Catholic faith as well as the formidable challenges facing Catholics today. Writing with his usual effortless grace and sparkling wit, Knox confronts such controversial topics as what is religion, man's doubts about God, the miracles of Christ, salvation outside the Church, sin and forgiveness, the Christian notion of marriage, and the resurrection of the body. The incisive religious insight and spiritual depth peppered with mischievous humor are the characteristic hallmarks of Knox's writing. He emphasizes that the Church in her teaching and sacramental life is a secret stream nourishing the world.
The Hidden Stream is a lucid refresher course in the teachings of the Church for informed Catholics, a pleasant "must" for uninformed ones, and a bulwark for all concerned with explaining the faith to others.

Convert's Perspective on "The Hidden Stream" Dec 4, 2006
This is a great exposition of the Roman Catholic Church's doctrine over a series of 23 homilies: examples include "the Four Marks of the Church" and "the Christian Notion of Marriage." Msgr. Knox (1888-1957) is the son of an Anglican Bishop, converted to Catholicism, and was the Catholic chaplain for Oxford University. His writing style is both witty and compelling.
