The Genius of John Henry Newman : Selections from his Writings Hardback
Edited by Ian Ker
Ian Ker presents a major collection of Newman's writings, celebrating his full achievements as both a universally significant religious thinker, and a major Victorian writer.
An unsystematic thinker, Newman's ideas are scattered throughout his works - most of which were 'occasional' in their origin.
This anthology provides a rich and varied sampling from his voluminous works, drawing our attention to some of the very finest passages in Newman's writings whether selected from his well-known publications or from occasional texts that are difficult to find in print.
The selection is divided into five sections, which focus on his life as an educator, a philosopher, a preacher, a theologian, and a writer.
