John Henry Newman was the greatest of all the Englsih churchmen of the last two hundered years. Venerated throughout the worls, Newman's many gifts, andhis life of exemplary holiness, continue to fascinate. Famous in his own lifetime as a writer, thinker, preacher and poet, he is seen today as a prophet and a saint. Few have achieved his clarity of vision over the fundamentals of the Christian Faith, or have been able to express these timeless truths so clearly, to share them so lucidly and to coninue to inspire succeeding generations. Here is a highly readable account of his life, written with a freshness and immediacy that brings us close to the story of this remarkable man - a very English saint. Joyce Sugg, like Newman, is a convert to the Catholic Church from Anglicanism and has spent most of her life either in Oxford or in Birmingham.
