John Henry Newman (1801-1890) has always inspired devotion.
Newman has made disciples as leader of the Catholic revival in the Church of England, an inspiration to fellow converts to Roman Catholicism, a nationally admired preacher and prose-writer, and an internationally recognized saint of the Catholic Church.
Nevertheless, he has also provoked criticism. The church authorities, both Anglican and Catholic, were often troubled by his words and deeds, and scholarshave disputed his arguments and his honesty.
Written by a range of international experts, The Oxford Handbook of John Henry Newman shows how Newman remains important to the fields of education, history, literature, philosophy, and theology.
Divided into four parts, part one grounds Newman's works in the places, cultures, and networks of relationships in which he lived.
Part two looks at the thinkers who shaped his own thought, while the third part engages critically and appreciatively with themes in his writings.
Part fourexamines how those themes have shaped conversations in the churches and the academy.
This Handbook will serve as an important resource to critical and appreciative exploration of the person, writings, controversies, and legacy of Newman.
