John Henry Newman “alone could be considered a Doctor of the Church of the Modern Era,” Erich Przywara wrote in 1955 when Newman’s cause for canonization was first opened. Yet Newman’s sermons, delivered over half a century of public ministry, present a unique opportunity to enter into the mind and soul of the saint. Whether addressing Anglican farmers, Oxford scholars, or Irish priests, Newman unites wisdom with simplicity, timeless doctrine with practicality, and eloquence with deep feeling.
Edited by Dr Melinda Nielsen, this volume presents twenty-two of Newman’s most striking sermons, following the great feasts and seasons of the liturgical year. Perfect for Sunday reading or meditation throughout the week, here Newman tirelessly directs his audience toward the face of Christ. Brief notes accompany each sermon, opening up Newman’s life, relevant scripture, and the day’s liturgy for readers of all levels. With unflagging confidence in the power of the Gospel to transform lives, Newman offers both milk and meat that will strengthens souls on their own path to becoming a saint today.
