Saint John Henry Newman's life was dominated by a commitment to the truth. He listened to the voice of his conscience and followed its demands, even at the cost of career, security, reputation, friendship. An Oxford don, and probably the most famous preacher of his day, he was one of the most prominent figures in the Church of England. When he became a Catholic in 1845, this caused public scandal. He was frequently misunderstood by many, both Catholics and non-Catholics, for the rest of his life.

He was remarkable for the breadth of his human sympathy; he was also a diligent and sympathetic pastor in a poor urban parish. During his life, and after his death, countless people have been helped by his witness and his writings. His care for God's people has continued, as the miracles linked to his intercession clearly show.

Now, to celebrate the life England's newest saint, a selection of his writings and an introduction to his life are brought together in one volume. Including new and specially commissioned pictures and photographs illustrating his journey of faith, this is an unmissable read.

This biography includes some of his most famous sermons taken from the archives of the Catholic Truth Society, est. 1868, such as The Second Spring, God's Will, and The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. These works, published over 100 years ago, illustrate the range and power of this beloved Saint.
