A Vintage Spiritual Classic

In this original selection of his public sermons, private papers, and devotions, Newman's thoughtful belief in the Word of God shines through, as do his teachings on how to be in this world but not of it, and how to reconcile faith and reason.

Devoted to his own religious calling for nearly a century, John Henry Newman is one of the most definitive authorities on Christianity and theology. A cardinal of the Catholic Church, he had a pivotal role in Britian's reembrace of the Catholic Church in the 19th century. In 2010, he was officially canonized by Pope Benedict XVI.

Selected Sermons, Prayers, and Devotions was edited by John F. Thorton and Susan B. Varenne and includes a preface by Peter J. Gomes.

"Newman is one of the greatest of all spiritual writers, a master of English prose and an incomparable expositor of the mysteries of God and creation. This wonderful collection captures the heart of his eloquence and warmth. A superb achievement."--Philip Zaleski, editor of The Best Spiritual Writing Series
