Overview

In his books and articles, Thomas Howard has never been one to shy away from controversy. While attending the Evangelical Church of his parents and teaching English at an Evangelical college, Howard wrote his provocative best seller Evangelical is Not Enough. Soon after entering the Anglican Communion, Howard began asking the kinds of questions that would eventually lead him into the Roman Catholic Church.


Throughout his pilgrimage of faith, Howard wrote numerous thought-provoking yet respectful articles on a wide range of topics for both Protestant and Catholic publications, gaining him a wide and loyal following. Known for his wit and charm, Howard also was a sought after speaker for conferences and college graduations. Due to a request made by one of his faithful, this collection of Howard's best material has now been published.

Liturgical reform and sacred architecture, women's ordination and hierarchical authority, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien - these and many other topics of interest to Protestants and Catholics alike are tackled by Howard with his characteristic thoughtfulness in these articles and speeches that span more than twenty years of his prolific career.

    Howard the Tiger

    My claim to fame is having once drank beer with Thomas Howard. The easy, genial conversation that typified that time has continued for me in his books, and I say that the man and his books are one. I could also say that he's one of the best prose stylists in English, or that he's nearly single- handedly brought back the art of the essay. I could note that while he has always been a minority taste, Catholics read him while he was a Protestant, and Protestants read him now that he is a Catholic. But to do so would leave out numerous other readers, likely including atheists who simply like a bit of good writing. Were I to list my favorite books by Thos., they would include On Being Catholic, Chance or the Dance, and a small but absolutely gripping autobiography which picks up where Christ the Tiger left off, given a gap of maybe twenty years, Lead Kindly Light: My Journey to Rome. The present collection leaves out some of the liveliest essays, particularly 'Catholic is Not Enough' which appeared in Envoy and plays off his book title, Evangelical is Not Enough, not to mention ancient history from such magazines as His and the New Oxford Review. A great many of these pieces come from Touchstone, which is the reason I subscribed. I also think it would be helpful to include an introduction fitting the essays in some sort of order or commenting on the selection criteria. All of which is to say that there could easily be a further volume of divers and sundry Howardania, and I for one would welcome another round.
