Overview

John Henry Newman's conversion to Roman Catholicism rocked the Church of England to its foundation and escalated the spread of virulent anti-Catholicism in Victorian England.. In this book, Apologia pro Vita Sua, John Henry Newman, in order to defend himself from charges of insincerity, outlines the history of his spiritual development, from his beginnings as a liberal thinker, to his conversion to the Evangelical wing of the Church of England, to his ordination as an Anglican priest, to his gradual move toward Catholic thought, practice and worship in the Church of England, to his leadership in the so-called "Oxford Movement" and its call to holiness and Catholicity in the Church of England, and finally to his ultimate submission to Rome. Whether one agrees or disagrees with Cardinal Newman theologically; whether one can accept his particular conclusions is not important to the enjoyment of this book. It is an honest account of a spiritual journey, written by an articulate man, which should prove inspirational to all persons of faith, and to all on a spiritual pilgrimage. A rigorous examination of Newman's own religious development, enlivened by touches of satire and sometimes invective, Apologia pro Vita Sua is a powerful spiritual autobiography.

Meet the Author

John Henry Newman (1801 - 1890) was a Roman Catholic cardinal. In 1991 he was proclaimed Venerable. As a young man he was active in the Oxford Movement which tried to bring the Church of England back to its catholic roots. After his conversion to Catholicism he wrote many influential books. After joining the Catholic Church many Protestant clergymen criticized his decision and questioned his faith. Charles Kingsley in particular attacked Newman. Newman's response was to write Apologia pro Vita Sua, which is a spiritual autobiography. In this work Newman explores the depth of Christianity.
