  • This official biography is written by an Australian priest of the Oratoire de France and destined to be read by those from the world over who will gather in September to see Newman beatified. They will find in this book an extraordinary grasp of Newmans significance and a genius for making it known.

    It is illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs that bring to life Newman and his world.

    John Henry Newman is a figure of immense significance for the Universal Church. His prophetic voice continues to speak far beyond the confines of 19th-century England. Almost every issue of significance for the Church today is enlightened by reference to his spirit, life and thought.

    The relationship of these three elements, the spiritual, the moral and the intellectual, is at the heart of Fr Keith Beaumonts book, the official biography commissioned for the beatification.

    Fr Beaumonts biography gives a clear account of all the major themes of Newmans life and work, with judicious use of citations from this work so that Newmans thought is in almost every case conveyed in his own words. Fr Beaumont also directs us to some lesser known sources to give us a balanced and complete view of the subtlety of Newmans thought.
