One of the greatest modern Catholic writers of apologetics
Born into a high achieving Anglican family and succeeding brilliantly at Eton and Oxford, it was as an Anglican clergyman (during the First World War years) that Knox began his celebrated conversion to Catholicism. Fr Beck describes Knox’s intellectual and pastoral journey and the increasing impact it had on Anglicans and Catholic alike. Knox’s prodigious gifts as a writer of apologetics, speaker and broadcaster, and his great work of translating the Bible into English contributed greatly to the life of the Church and remain his lasting legacy. He died in 1957.
