Moral and spiritual guidance from one of the most distinguished and versatile champions of English spirituality.
That’s what Pope John Paul II called the great nineteenth-century convert John Henry Cardinal Newman — and this new collection of his writings on virtually every aspect of life in Christ shows why.
Editor John Hulsman here presents brief, readable excerpts from Newman’s sermons on faith, the true Christian life, temptations, the world, doubts, and the mysteries of the Catholic Faith. These selections give you a comprehensive overview of Newman’s profound and influential teachings on daily life as a Christian, including his wisdom on the Church, God’s Providence, the Mass, the intercession of Mary, prayer, temptation and sin, the Christian character, happiness, and much more. Full of Newman’s elegant prose and piercing Christian insight, this volume is not only a winning introduction to Newman: it’s also a remarkable resource for daily spiritual reading.
John Henry Newman was canonized as saint by Pope Francis on October 13, 2019.
