Through the Year with Newman
Edited by Bernard Dive
Publisher:Burns & Oates imprint of Continuum
This is a book of readings drawn from the writings of that great philosopher and theologian John Henry Newman. In a long introduction the editor Bernard Dive explains what Christianity meant to Newman, and although Newman was an intellectual, the spirit was more important to him than the intellect in realising the unity and consistency of Christianity. A stage in his intellectual and spiritual development was his conversion from Anglo-Catholicism to Roman-Catholicism. In all of Newmanís books, but particularly in his Apologia pro Vita Sua, he has much to say about the human conscience where God had already manifested Himself to mankind. The readings, one for every day of the year as well as for moveable feasts, are all drawn from Newmanís extensive body of work. It is a very worthwhile bedside book to be read slowly and pondered over.
