A Perfect Peace: Newman Saint For Our Time, 4th Nov 2019

Reviewer: Michael Farry

I found this to be a good short account of Newman, reasonably well put together, covering all the various aspects of his life. Nice mentions of the various Irish connections. I enjoyed the quotes and extracts from his writing and these made me want to read more. It's good value for money, somewhere between a pamphlet and a fuller biography. I hope that having read this the reader wants to explore further, longer biographies, Dermot Mansfield's excellent one for instance, and read some of Newman himself.

St John Henry Newman

A Perfect Peace: Newman Saint for our Time

by Bishop Fintan Monahan


  add to cart

To celebrate the canonisation of John Henry Newman, Veritas is delighted to publish this special commemorative volume which includes a short biography of the great scholar and theologian, alongside key excerpts from his writings.
Born in London in 1801, Newman – one of the most notable Anglican converts to Catholicism – was a prolific author whose works, including forty books and twenty-one thousand letters, are considered to be some of the most influential in the history of Christian theology and spirituality.
At his beatification, Pope Benedict XVI said of Newman that his ‘insights into the relationship between faith and reason, into the vital place of revealed religion in civilised society, and into the need for a broadly-based and wide-ranging approach to education … continue to inspire and enlighten many all over the world today.’
In this timely new book, Bishop Fintan Monahan explores key moments from Newman’s life, including his years at Oxford, his conversion to Catholicism and his time spent in Ireland where he spearheaded the foundation of the Catholic University. He also explains why Newman’s writings continue to resonate and provides an inspiring selection of extracts from his works that highlight his genius.

Fintan Monahan is Bishop of Killaloe and is based in Ennis, Co. Clare. He has a great interest in John Henry Newman and has been collecting Newman’s work for over thirty years.

Expected ETA - 5th October
