Good introduction to Newman
With the continued attention being given to the Blessed John Henry Newman and his place in English Christianity, this book makes for a good introduction to Newman, especially for those who don't have the time to devote to his individual works. (Though I would hope that this book would spur the reader on to read more Newman.)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The quotations are organized according to topic, which are listed in the table of contents in alphabetical order, making them rather easy to find if you have some familiarity with Roman Catholic Christianity. I think it may be more useful for the Catholic seeking to learn more about Catholic Christianity, through Newman, than for one looking for a work more suitable for apologetics. Still, the sections on the "Development of Doctrine" and "Fathers of the Church" may be of special interest to non-Catholics.
