Newman: His Life and Legacy
In this new and up-to-date biography, the renowned Newman scholar Fr Ian Ker sets out the amazing life of John Henry Newman from his formative Anglican years, following his path to Rome, his founding of the Oratory, and his busy and often controversial Catholic years.
While a very thorough portrait of the man himself, this account also examines Cardinal Newman’s rich legacy and tells the complete story leading to his beatification in 2010.
Fr Ian Ker is a parish priest and Senior Research Fellow in Theology at St Benet’s Hall, Oxford. He is generally regarded as the world’s leading authority on Newman, on whom he has published more than twenty books.
