Description


This anthology traces the spiritual journey of John Henry Newman in tandem with the principal events of his life. Newman wrote about the development of doctrine and the function of a Catholic university, and he championed the rights of conscience, the role of the laity, and the role of intuition along with reason in the life of faith. Though ahead of his time in many ways, he was named a cardinal by Pope Leo XIII, and his influence helped shape the church of the twentieth century, so much so that Pope Paul VI called Vatican II “Newman’s Council.” In 2010 he was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI. The writings selected here trace Newman’s spiritual journey in tandem with the principal events of his life, offering a unique glimpse into the life and thought of one of Catholicism’s true giants.
