Cardinal Newman for Today presents John Henry Newman’s life, his encounter with the wisdom of antiquity, his discovery of divine revelation and his encounter with the Fathers of the Church. The author will then address the living tradition of the Church, the faith-life of believers and the reality of doctrine. Finally, the author explains how the Gospel of joy can be lived out through obedience to God and conscience.
Someone has described Newman as saying in effect, ‘If you have a religion like Christianity, think of it and have it worthily.’
