The best introduction to John Henry Newman!

Until now, getting to know Newman has been an intimidating task, accessible only to those who have hours upon hours to read, study, and research his 40 books and 32 volumes of letters.

And Pope Pius II said that he
“gave up his whole life to the truth.”

Cardinal John Henry Newman, the British Cardinal pronounced “Blessed” by Pope Benedict XVI, is one of the most famous Catholic converts and thinkers of the past 200 years.  And yet until now, getting to know Newman has been an intimidating task, accessible only to those who have hours upon hours to read, study, and research his 40 books and 32 volumes of letters.

 
Stack of books


So prodigious was Cardinal Newman’s output that only a few souls have read all that he wrote!

But so keen was his intellect—and so profound his love for our Lord—that even those who’ve read just a few pages have profited greatly.

Although we know he can help us to quickly grow in understanding and renewed faith in God, we simply lack the time to read all his insightful books.


Cardinal John Henry Newman
has not been accessible to folks like you and me. 


Until Now.
 

Eager to share Newman's wisdom with others, renowned Catholic apologist Dave Armstrong—himself drawn forth from Protestantism by the power of Cardinal Newman’s words—set out on a monumental task that resulted in one of the most substantive, yet accessible, books in years:


The Quotable Newman

Edited by Dave Armstrong
Price: $24.95  -  448 Pages

 
Armstrong set before him the vast collection of Newman’s works and began mining from them the spiritually richest and theologically wisest passages, thereby distilling for you and me Newman's remarkable reflections on our Catholic faith.

In fact, more than 100 topics are included in these pages, ranging from Absolution, Angels, and the Bible, through Confession, the Eucharist, Infallibility, and the Inquisition, and reaching all the way to the Sacraments, the Eucharist, Transubstantiation, and the Trinity.


"Dave Armstrong's anthology of Newman is the best
I have se
en—remarkable for the way it makes
this monumental writer accessible to the modern reader."

Stratford Caldecott
editor of the UK edition of Magnificat


Armstrong selected these particular passages for their beauty, to be sure, but even more for the clarity and persuasiveness with which they present and defend these and so many other key theological positions of our Catholic Church.

Whether you’re a catechist, an apologist, a Catholic layman, or just a searcher after truth, you’ll find in these passages a lucid consideration of most any Catholic teaching of serious concern to you.

This book covers so many topics that it constitutes a
complete education in the doctrines of the Catholic Faith.

Read into these pages as you have time. Turn to them as a reference when you encounter new or puzzling theological points. Make them your companion.

Do so, and I guarantee that, as Cardinal Newman intended, in a very short time you’ll be able persuasively to speak of the Faith, leading even the most skeptical of your hearers closer to Christ and His Church.


"The Quotable Newman provides highlights from
Newman's magnificent work in one easy-t0-read volume.
This is the perfect introduction to his thought."
