The Hidden Stream
The Hidden Stream 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 in the modern world.
Msgr. Knox confronts such highly controversial topics concerning the nature of religion, the average man's doubts about God, the miracles of Christ, salvation outside the Church, sin and forgiveness, the Christian understanding of marriage, and the resurrection of the body. The incisive religious insights and spiritual depth, peppered with mischievous humor, which are the characteristic hallmarks of Msgr. Knox's writing make these discussions sympathetic, vital, and interesting. And throughout the book, Msgr. Knox emphasizes, as an underlying theme, that, like the hidden stream under certain buildings in Oxford, so the Church in her teaching and sacramental life is a secret stream nourishing the world.
