John Henry Newman: Conscience in the Parochial and Plain Sermons
Rev Fabio Attard
No. of Pages:
This is the second book about John Henry Newman of the same author. A theme, which is rightly associated with the personality of John Henry Newman, is surely that of conscience. Newman’s whole life story comes across as a witness of someone who followed the light of his conscience wherever it led him. Yet, for him or her who decides to enter into a more familiar knowledge of the man, it will soon become clear that the meaning of conscience in his life goes much deeper than was originally thought. The background to this study, that is the Anglican period, from his birth until his acceptance into the Roman Catholic communion, 1801 to 1845, is vested with a significance which is more than just a pursuit for pure historical knowledge.
