Overview

Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman, a priest and scholar who is among the most famous modern converts to Catholicism, was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in 2010. Newman also had a tremendous impact on such twentieth-century Christian thinkers as G.K. Chesterton, C.S. Lewis, and Pope Benedict. His prayers are sincere, emotionally charged cries to God, as well as thoughtful, meditative lessons on the great themes of the Christian faith.

Newman is still well-loved in the English-speaking world as both a writer and thinker, and as someone who loved Christ and the Church deeply. Unlike other compilations of Newman's work, Heart to Heart is the only complete prayer book, and it offers readers many of Newman's most famous and heart-felt prayers. The book comes with suggested devotions to help readers pray at leisure daily, weekly, and seasonally.

What People are saying about this

Aidan Nichols
This rich selection of prose and poetry, drawn from both Newman's Anglican and his Catholic period, is a fitting celebration of his devout and thoughtful heart in the year that follows his beatification. (Rev. Aidan Nichols, O.P., Author of Rome and the Eastern Churches)
