Item description for Newman and Faith (Louvain Theological & Pastoral Monographs) by Ian T. Ker, Terrence Merrigan, Oxford International Newman Conference 2 & Ian T. Ker...
The life and work of John Henry Newman were dominated by questions concerning the nature of Christian faith and the way in which it comes to expression in history. In this collection of essays, eight leading scholars examine the theological, philosophical, historical, literary and spiritual dimensions of Newman's understanding of faith, and reflect on the way in which his thought relates to contemporary concerns and interests in their disciplines. The themes discussed include the relationship between faith and reason, Newman and postmodernity, the rights and limitations of conscience, the place of doctrine in Christian life, the believer in the church, and the autobiographical significance of Newman's treatment of faith in his novels. Like its predecessor, Newman and the Word, this collection aims to provide a critical reflection on the relevance of Newman's thought for today.
