John Henry Newman: His Life and Work

  • Author: Brian Martin
  • Publisher: Continuum
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 160

Cardinal Newman (1801–1890) was one of the most eminent and controversial figures of the nineteenth century. His conversion of the Church of Rome sparked one of the most bitter and divisive controversies of the Victorian age. His religious thought helped to lay the foundations for the second Vatican Council. Brian Martin’s sympathetic study is a critical biography of Newman that surveys his life from his brilliant Oxford career to his eventual elevation to the Cardinalate. His relations with other leaders of the Roman Catholic Church in Britain are examined, and his major works are discussed in the context of his life.

This is a well-written, well-illustrated and attractively presented book, which marks admirably the bi-centenary of the birth of its subject.

Downside Review

A beautifully produced reissue of a text previously published in 1982 and 1990, timed to coincide with the two hundredth anniversary of Newman’s birth. This is a fluently written, thoroughly entertaining account of Newman’s life, with numerous illustrations. A good, enjoyable . . . read, and a nice way of marking the anniversary.

Reviews in Religion and Theology

Well-illustrated and accessibly written, it is a splendid introduction to a man who embodies in his life and writings many of the controversies of nineteenth-century Christianity . . . For the person for whom Newman is still only a name, or someone who needs to refresh their memory about him, this is the ideal book.

John Henry Newman: A Biography

  • Author: Ian Ker
  • Publisher: T & T Clark International
  • Publication Date: 1999
  • Pages: 784

The first full-length biography to pay equal attention both to Newman’s achievements as a thinker and writer, and to his personal life. This highly-praised biography reveals Newman in his full complexity, the legendary sadness and sensitivity set against an equally striking exuberance, good humor and uncompromising toughness in the face of adversity. In addition, no biographer has better described Newman’s intellectual development in a way that reveals his extraordinary and continuing significance.

It will be valued for many years, perhaps for ever, as the definitive chronicle of a life which fascinated the Victorians and has not ceased to fascinate since.

—David Edwards

McGrath’s well-researched book fills a gap in the huge body of literature on Newman . . . a fine study of Newman . . . a lively and often chronological account in which the reader not only gets a complete view of the subject in question, but also acquires an understanding of the man behind his ideas. The historical context is never forgotten and Newman’s debate with his contemporaries on revelation is amply presented.

Achievement of John Henry Newman

  • Author: Ian Ker
  • Publisher: T & T Clark International
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 220

Ian Ker, noted Newman scholar and author of the definitive John Henry Newman: A Biography, here offers a critical re-evaluation of five aspects of Newman’s intellectual and literary achievement that constitute his essential genius.

Newman’s role as an educator is examined first through an interpretation of his theory of a liberal education found in The Idea of a University. The philosophical writings, including An Essay in Aid of a Grammar of Assent, are looked at next, while Ker argues that Newman is not simply an important apologist for Christianity but also a significant philosopher in his own right, whose originality is only beginning to be appreciated. Ker also presents Newman the preacher, providing a critique of the Anglican sermons, which have long been recognized for their spirituality but have received surprisingly little attention with regard to their homiletic and literary art.

Newman’s theological themes are explored in an overview of the theological writings of both the Anglican and Catholic periods. And, lastly, Ker considers Newman’s literary achievement, which has been generally underrated and to a considerable extened even underperceived. Throughout this provocative book, Ker mediates Newman’s theological understanding to the believer of today, to the inquiring general reader, as well as to scholars.

To portray the features that constitute the achievement of John Henry Newman (1801–90) in a single book is a bold task given the enormity of his corpus and the complexity of his thought. Yet Ian Ker succeeds with aplomb.

The Journal of Religion

Each of these five portraits of the mind of Newman is magisterial, persuasive, and refreshing.

Theological Studies

Ker’s brief study of several of Newman’s major volumes (Idea of a University, Essay on Development, and Grammar of Assent) will serve as a fine introduction to Newman the writer and thinker. Highly recommended.

Choice

The Achievement of John Henry Newman provides a succinct and useful summary of ideas that should be on the reading list of anyone who has serious interest in liberal education.

Newman the Fullness of Christianity

  • Author: Ian Ker
  • Publisher: T & T Clark International
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 160

John Henry Newman, often called “the Father of Vatican II,” is increasingly seen as the most important and influential of modern Catholic theologians. Ker claims that his potential significance for the ecumenical movement is still underestimated. This book, based on the prestigious 1992 Fisher Lectures in Cambridge, illustrates how Newman’s richly varied theological education, combined with his criticisms of the defects of pre-Vatican II Catholicism, makes him a unique guide for the interpretation and further development of Vatican II. The author brings out Newman’s relevance for ecumenism and evangelization, and show how his personal journey to the heart of Christianity leads the way towards unity among Christians and a full renewal of the Church.

  • Author: Ian Ker
  • Publisher: T & T Clark International
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 470

Newman’s conversion to Roman Catholicism is one of the most momentous in the history of religion. His own autobiographical account ranks with St. Augustine’s Confessions as a spiritual classic; but it is also one of the masterpieces of Victorian prose.

This interdisciplinary collection of studies includes contributions from distinguished scholars in the fields of history, literature, philosophy and theology. Together they explore major aspects of conversion in the life and writing of John Henry Newman. A wide-ranging and illuminating study.

John Henry Newman

  • Author: Avery Dulles
  • Publisher: Continuum
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 192

John Henry Newman may be considered the most outstandingly original and creative English religious thinker of the nineteenth century. Avery Dulles is himself one of the most important living Roman Catholic theologians. Therefore the combination of this author and this subject is in itself a matter for celebration. Newman has countless admirers, and since the publication of Geoffrey Faber’s Oxford Apostles many debunkers this as an account of Newman that is truly balanced and shows him to be as much a prophet for our times as he was for his own. Though unsuccessful in most of his undertakings in the Catholic Church during his lifetime, his genius has increasingly come to be recognized after his death, and his influence can hardly be exaggerated. While writing this study of Cardinal Newman, Avery Dulles was himself created a Cardinal.

. . . a revival of much of the traditional understanding of John Henry Newman. . . . a clear concise, and insightful survey of Newman’s ideas.

The Weekly Standard

As an introduction, it is well written, engaging, and relevant, offering a concise and thematic treatment of Newman’s thought while supplying adequate background knowledge about the various stages of his life. It also provides brief, but helpful, routes to the terrain of contemporary theology . . . Dulles’ [sic] accessible account should provoke further conversation not only among Newman scholars (especially Chapter 10) but also among general readers. This achievement rings true to the spirit of Newman’s work as a contextual theologian.

Newman Studies Journal

With his customary lucidity and concision, Avery Cardinal Dulles, SJ, . . . has written a most useful introduction to the life and thought of John Henry Newman . . . This thematic study meets the need for a compact presentation of major themes that are scattered throughout Newman’s voluminous writings.

Through the Year with Newman: Daily Readings

  • Author: Bernard Dive
  • Publisher: Continuum
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 176

John Henry Newman was a great thinker—a seminal theologian and philosopher—but he possessed something more than intellectual brilliance: he possessed wisdom and a profound devotional life. He brought to any practical topic an awareness of the unity and consistency of the Christian faith. His writings are shot through with insights that get to the very core of what Christianity means.

Who better to take as a spiritual guide? Through the Year with Newman is a collection of reflections and prayers—one for every day of the year. It focuses on core Christian doctrines as presented with piercing clarity by Newman. It concentrates less on controversial issues than on matters of faith common to all Christians; but it also gets across the essence of the distinctive achievement of Newman, a sense of his central ideas and of the complexion of his thought.

Bernard Dive was for a time an editor at John Murray, Ltd. He has degrees in English and theology and a PhD from the University of Cambridge, UK. He is now a freelance editor and writer and writes frequently for the Tablet and TLS.
