Newman's Unquiet GraveAlexandra Irvine, via The Good Book Stall
The author of this biography has undertaken the daunting task of giving an account of the life and work of John Henry Newman, a renowned Anglican priest who became a convert to Catholicism and eventually a cardinal in the Catholic Church. He is assisted in this by the inclusion in the text of many excerpts from his subject’s own letters and sermons. These show Newman to be a deeply introverted person, prone to self-analysis of a highly critical and unflattering nature, and yet one capable of forming many close bonds of friendship. Although regarded by some as equivocal and controversial, Newman is clearly portrayed here as a person of scrupulous honesty and deep religious conviction who followed his conscience in the face of virulent adverse criticism and the accusation of apostasy. Among other things, this very readable book serves to whet one’s appetite to learn more about the intriguing and complex person who is now known as Blessed John Henry Newman.
