David Knight was forty years a priest before he leamed that priests don’t hear sins in confession. “What you are really revealing is your ideals,” he says. “The real you has a different set of ideals, reflecting your heart instead of your lapses.” With these Words Fr Knight reveals that A Fresh Look at Confession is unlike anything you may have read about the sacrament. He speaks about the heart of Confession, its meaning and mystery, and why it is so necessary for authentic followers of Christ. This is deep theology, explained in clear language. But it is also much more: Knight’s moving, intensely personal account of his own journey as a sinner takes readers beyond theory and into the awe-inspiring reality of our complete redemption in Jesus, who does not just forgive, but Who “takes away” the sins of the World. F rom a varied background as missionary, teacher, pastor, professor, retreat director and campus minister, Knight’s ministry has come to focus on making mystical experience commonplace in conscious Christian living.
