Item Description...
This major new study of Newman's religious development, from his childhood to his conversion to Roman Catholicism, "explores Newman's growth in holiness and truth, i.e., religious truth, and the mutual influence of one upon the other." The former, the author states, "is the more difficult to explore, since it involves not only a study of words and actions but of his inner life and motivation, which are often hidden." This exploration is undertaken here with the aid of materials never before fully explored: verse, sermons, prayers and letters, both by and to Newman.

The detailed treatment of Newman's inner life as revealed in his private journals---not intended for publication---shows the "continuity and change involved in his growth in holiness" in their proper perspective, and how his early "rigorous self-examination, meditation and assiduous study of the whole of the Scriptures" produced the flowering of "realizations of the Christian mysteries, full of psychological insights and abounding in quotations from Scripture," of the Parochial and Plain Sermons.

In addition to examining Newman's writings, this work also re-examines the Oxford Movement, highlighting Newman's spiritual, ascetical, and religious impact.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An interesting historical footnote. . .  Apr 7, 2001
. . .is that the Catholic Church didn't much care for Newman's "Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine" even though it was the writing of this essay which brought Newman into the Catholic Church.

The reason? The "Essay" was not written in Latin, nor was it expressed in the format and style to which Catholic theological writings adhered in the 19th century.

This small book contains Newman's expressions on the subject in a manner more pleasing to the 19th century Catholic authorities. While not, by any stretch of the imagination, on the same level as his "Essay", nevertheless, these writings continue to demonstrate Newman's evolving understanding as to how doctrine develops.

Recommended -- along with Ian Ker's edition of "Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine".

A wonderful introduction to a great spiritual man.  Jul 20, 2000
John Henry Cardinal Newman brought me to the Catholic Church - one hundred years after his death. His flawless logic, profound faith, and burning love continue to inspire men and women to follow the "Kindly Light" of Christ. This book is a beautiful introduction to Newman, with selections from meditations, devotions, sermons, and my personal favorite, his poetry. It also contains a short biogrophy of Cardinal Newman. While not a great work on a scale with the Apologia, this little devotional is an excellent introduction to a great man of God.
