John Henry NewmanJ.Nicholas Latham, via The Good Book Stall
This anthology is usefully divided into six chapters, or 'Months': 'The Call of Faith', 'The Art of Prayer', 'The Contemplation of Christ', 'The Risk of Discipleship', 'The Meaning of Holiness' and 'The Hope of Heaven'. Within each 'Month' there are thirty passages, of varying lengths, taken from Newman's writings. While there is a heavy reliance on his (Anglican) 'Parochial and Plain Sermons', passages also come from his letters and books, as well as his prayers, poems and meditations. Another volume might well make up a year of 'Months' and draw more on post 1845 sources than does this one. The 'Introduction' is unremarkable - would everyone agree with Wilson that, 'Today, John Henry Newman is chiefly remembered as a poet.' 'There are no short ways to perfection, but there are sure ones' (p. 150); some of these are explained with sympathy for the enquirer, secured in Newman's own life. He never bores, or is irrelevant. Even if one dips into this collection at random, there will be words to encourage, calm and to reinforce one's own faith. While he speaks with authority, it is always one heart understanding the needs of another.
