I would rate the book as a book down because the type is too small, but that's the way of the world these days. It's worth the eyestrain.
Reading these sermons is like sitting down with a wise old uncle. He will explain Jesus' words and the Gospel message like so few are able to. This volume is highly recommended and will surely be a source of joy, a comfort, and a voice of sanity in these sad, insecure and insane times.
While I liked this book, consideration should also be given to Prayers, Verses, and Devotions and to Parochial and Plain Sermons (2) by Cardinal John Henry Newman. In my opinion, these two books by Newman are better than the book by Knox. Newman was a very exceptional person and his sermons, prayers, verses, and devotions are outstanding. Rather than compare Knox to Newman my suggestion is to buy all three books and use them to enrich one's spiritual life. This book by Knox is a valuable addition to my spiritual library.
Also, many of Monsignor Knox's sermons were written between WWI & WWII. A very interesting perspective on the world society's perspective of life and their relationships with God is quite evident in Knox's writings due to this rather obscure timeframe.
I highly recommend this book to all those to who the first sentence of my review applies.
