Item description for Newman and the Word Proceedings of the Second Oxford International Newman Conference (Louvain Theological & Pastoral Monographs) by Terrence Merrigan, Ian T. Ker & unive Oxford International Newman Conference 1998 Oriel College...
The "word" was at the heart of John Henry Newman's endeavors as a preacher and writer, and the "Word made flesh" was the primary object of his faith as a Christian. In this volume theologians, philosophers, historians, and literary scholars reflect on Newman's engagement with the word and relate his thought to contemporary developments in their respective disciplines.
The range of topics discussed include Newman's understanding of the nature of faith and the church, his standing as an ecumenist and a philosopher, and the significance of his literary and theological work in relation to postmodernism. Together these insightful essays constitute a thoroughgoing, critical analysis of Newman's reputation as a master of the word, both written and proclaimed, and of his status as a thinker of contemporary significance.
