John Henry Newman: Meditations and DevotionsDan McNamara, via The Good Book Stall
On his death Blessed John Henry Newman left behind a wealth of unpublished writings; Fr. Neville, a secretary of Newman's and a member of the Birmingham Oratory, took it upon himself to prepare some of this body of writings posthumously for print. And thank goodness he did! Although Ker has presented but a fraction of Neville's original compilation, this small collection of meditations, devotions and prayers is terrific. Ker, the author of the best biography on Newman to date (Oxford 2009), has clearly taken much care in his selections. As Newman himself would surely have wished, the bulk of the material focuses on Christian doctrine. Newman's own distinct voice is most evident in the Marian meditations and devotions towards the end of the book: the simplicity and directness which which they have been written is hauntingly beautiful. My shelves will profit from this book both as a compendium to Neville's Meditations and Devotions and as an aide to the Seasons and Feasts of the year. Clearly, then, good things come in small packages!
