Overview

The world in which we live, with its emphasis on materialism over spirituality, would have been all too familiar to John Henry Newman, the celebrated nineteenth-century Anglican preacher who converted to Roman Catholicism. In this original selection of his public sermons, private prayers, and devotions, he guides a new generation of thoughtful believers to the Word of God, teaching them how to be in this world but not of it, how to reconcile faith and reason.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Long celebrated as a spiritual writer and autobiographer, and certainly among the most famous modern converts to Catholicism, Newman is news that has stayed news. Editors Thornton and Varenne have assembled a generous and thoughtful selection of his non-autobiographical writings, including his model sermons and his celebrated narrative poem, "The Dream of Gerontius." Peter Gomes's splendidly written introduction alone is almost worth the price of admission. Highly recommended. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
