Book Review: John Henry Newman by Avery Cardinal Dulles, SJ

Since today is the memorial for Blessed John Henry Newman, I thought I would give you a quick book review on a text I read when I was in graduate school at Franciscan University of Steubenville.

Book Review:

If you are looking for a great book on the Catholic convert and apologist, Blessed John Henry Newman, then look no further than Avery Dulles’ book, John Henry Newman.  This is the perfect book for anyone seeking an introduction to one of the greatest churchmen of the 19th century. If you have ever read Newman in the past, you will know that he can be rather difficult to understand, but with this text, you will gain full access to his great theological mind. Cardinal Dulles breaks down Newman into multiple theological subjects and quotes many of his works. The late Jesuit did a great job researching for this text. It’s a fantastic book that should be read by all Catholics.

Purchase this book at Amazon.
