Course

The Spirituality of John Henry Newman

Description

John Henry Newman (1801–1890), who was canonized in 2019, understood the English culture of his time and proposed a new approach to the Christian faith. He combined, in his life, an acute sense of God’s presence and fine theological thinking. So, the goal of this course is to examine and be nourished by his spirituality.

Book to purchase: John Henry Newman: Selected Sermons, edited, with an Introduction by Ian Ker (New York: Paulist Press, 1994).

Additionally, a few short excerpts from Newman’s writings will be electronically sent to students.
