Apologia Pro Vita Suaby John Newman, Ian Ker (Editor)
Once a well known Anglican clergyman, Newman left his living in the 1840s, recanted his former criticism of the Roman Catholic Church, and entered the priesthood, becoming-ultimately-a cardinal. Framing his Apologia in reply to grave and gratuitous slander which he felt Charles Kingsley had made against him, Newman overcame his characteristic shyness and produced one of the masterpieces of spiritual writing: honest, passionate, scrupulous and moving.
