John Henry Newman is recognized as one of the greatest Christian thinkers of modern times and has been hailed as a great prophet of twentieth century Christianity. He was also a man of prayer and deep spirituality. To mark Newman's expected beatification later this year, A.N. Wilson has compiled this wide-ranging anthology of prayers, poems and meditations.Beginning with an engaging Introduction to Newman's life and thought, this anthology has been carefully arranged to provide daily readings over a six-month period. The readings cover the general themes of faith, prayer, the contemplation of Christ, discipleship, the meaning of holiness, and the hope of heaven.
A. N. Wilson is one of Britain's best known authors. He has written biographies of C. S. Lewis, Iris Murdoch, Tolstoy and John Betjeman and is the author of The Victorians and After the Victorians. He is also the author of numerous fiction titles, including My Name is Legion and, most recently, Winnie and Wolf.
