Overview

A Vintage Spiritual Classic
 
In this original selection of his public sermons, private papers, and devotions, Newman’s thoughtful belief in the Word of God shines through, as do his teachings on how to be in this world but not of it, and how to reconcile faith and reason. 

Devoted to his own religious calling for nearly a century, John Henry Newman is one of the most definitive authorities on Christianity and theology. A cardinal of the Catholic Church, he had a pivotal role in Britian's reembrace of the Catholic Church in the 19th century. In 2010, he was officially canonized by Pope Benedict XVI.
 
Selected Sermons, Prayers, and Devotions was edited by John F. Thorton and Susan B. Varenne and includes a preface by Peter J. Gomes.
 
Praise for Selected Sermons, Prayers, and Devotions
 
“Newman is one of the greatest of all spiritual writers, a master of English prose and an incomparable expositor of the mysteries of God and creation. This wonderful collection captures the heart of his eloquence and warmth. A superb achievement.”—Philip Zaleski, editor of The Best Spiritual Writing Series

Editorial Reviews

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.
