Item description for Newman (Outstanding Christian Thinkers (Paperback Continuum)) by Sj Avery Dulles...
Newman may be considered the most outstandingly original and creative English religious thinker of the nineteenth century. Here is by far the clearest and most concise introduction to his life and thought ever written. Avery Dulles is himself one of the most important living Roman Catholic theologians. The combination of this author and this subject is in itself a matter for celebration. Newman has countless admirers. Since the publication of Geoffrey Faber's Oxford Apostles many have also attempted to debunk him. But here is an account of Newman that is truly balanced and shows him to be as much a prophet for our times as he was for his own. Though unsuccessful in most of his undertakings in the Catholic Church during his life time, his genius has come to be more and more recognized after his death, and his influence can hardly be exaggerated. While writing this study of Cardinal Newman, Avery Dulles was himself created a Cardinal.

Very good Newman Summary Jan 28, 2003
This book did exactly what Cardinal Dulles said it would, give a concise overview of Newman's theology as well as give adequate background on Newman's life and what significance his writings have for contemporary theology. I found this book to be a fine introduction to Newman's thought; readable for a beginner and yet thorough enough to be kept as an on-hand reference.
