Passion for Truth: The Life of John Henry Newman (eBook)

(1 review) Write a Review

In Passion for Truth, author and scholar Fr. Juan R. Velez painstakingly uncovers the life and work of Saint John Henry Newman. In the story of his early years, his family upbringing, and university education, through his vast correspondence with family, friends, and colleagues, Velez acquaints us with Newman, the loyal friend, profound thinker, prolific writer, and holy priest. A true Catholic gentleman, Newman can be admired and loved by all who love the Truth.

Newman was a talented but timid young man, who often doubted his own competence, but was to become one of the most influential teachers and writers of the 19th Century.

Starting life as a devout and promising Anglican scholar, he finished the race a faithful and unwavering Catholic priest and Cardinal, to the disappointment of some of his closest friends and the great joy of many others.

    Informative, interesting, theologically astute and clear, encouraging, inspiring, riveting, heart-wrenching, challenging -- all the things I expect from a good biography about a saint.
