John Henry Newman (1801-1890) was one of the outstanding Christian figures of his time. A successful Oxford don and preacher, he underwent a remarkable spiritual pilgrimage. Leaving behind his Evangelical student days, he became leader of the controversial High-Anglican Oxford Movement, and subsequently championed the mid-19th century Catholic Revival. He became a cardinal at the age of 78. His most famous work is his spiritual autobiography, Apologia Pro Vita Sua, one of many of his writings to have influenced the modern Catholic Church.
Originally published in this form in 1974, and here reissued with a new introduction by the author, this biography brings life and charm to a man too often perceived as a dry, scholarly recluse. It is considered by many to be the best popular biography of Newman ever written.
