Parochial and Plain Sermons, Vol. VII by John Henry Newman Summary
Book Excerpt: ...t and most awful revelation, which God has made to us about the future, that in that day, the books will be opened, "and another book opened, which is the book of life, and the dead judged out of those things which were written in the books according to their works!" What would a man give, any one of us, who has any real insight into his polluted and miserable state, what would he give to tear away some of the leaves there preserved! For how heinous are the sins therein written! Think of the multitude of sins done by us since we first knew the difference between right and wrong. We have forgotten them, but there we might read them clearly recorded. Well may holy David exclaim, "Remember not the sins of my youth nor my transgressions, according to Thy mercy remember Thou me." Conceive, too, the multitude of sins which have so grown into us as to become part of us, and in which we now live, not knowing, or but partially knowing, that they are sins, habits of pride, self-reliance, self-conceit, sullenness, im...
Realizations by John Henry Newman Summary
What is the secret of John Henry Newman's enduring appeal? It perhaps lies in the freshness, persuasiveness, and brilliance of his descriptions of Christianity. Newman, who is to be beatified by Pope Benedict XVI later this year, often uses the word realization" rather than "faith" or "belief" to describe the process of becoming a Christian. To him, a realization is a moment when "one opens one's heart to a truth." He continues to enthrall us because through him we come to recognize Christianity not as a languid assent to a series of propositions, but as a vivid encounter with concrete realities. This collection of his sermons-the ones Newman himself felt were his best-is the ideal introduction to one of the greatest writers in the Christian tradition. "If there is one comprehensive thing that can be said about Newman's writings, it is that he has a 'voice;' it is his own and no-one else's. To me, at least, it is a voice that never falls to start up, radioactive from the page, however musty the physical book." -From the foreword by Muriel Spark Vincent Ferrer Blehl, SJ, (1921-2001) was the Postulator of the cause of Newman's canonization, and the author of several books and articles about Newman's life and work. The novelist Muriel Spark (1918 - 2006) said that "it was by way of Newman that I turned Roman Catholic." She later remarked that "it wasn't until I became a Roman Catholic . . . that I was ale to see human existence as a whole, as a novelist needs to do.""

Parochial and Plain Sermons by Blessed John Henry Newman,Aeterna Press Summary
STRANGE as it may seem, multitudes called Christians go through life with no effort to obtain a correct knowledge of themselves. They are contented with general and vague impressions concerning their real state; and, if they have more than this, it is merely such accidental information about themselves as the events of life force upon them. But exact systematic knowledge they have none, and do not aim at it. Aeterna Press
The Conceptualisation of the Christian Life in John Henry Newman's Parochial and Plain Sermons by Marcin Kuczok Summary
This book analyses the conceptual mechanisms behind the notion of “The Christian Life” in the collection of sermons preached by John Henry Newman (1801–1890) and published in eight volumes as Parochial and Plain Sermons (1834–1843). The study utilises tools of cognitive semantics, such as the theory of conceptual metaphor and metonymy and the theory of conceptual integration. Cognitivism offers an integral perspective on language and is gaining in popularity among scholars in the whole world. The book identifies a number of metaphorical models of “The Christian Life” in Newman’s sermons, based on structural metaphors, such as “A Journey”, “A Race”, “A Trial” and “Family Life”, as well as some models based on ontological metaphors, such as animalisations (“The Sheepfold” metaphor), vegetalisations (the “Christ is a Plant” metaphor) and reifications (“The Gift” metaphor). Each of the models constitutes a coherent set of metaphors, metonymies and metaphtonymies, present throughout the whole of Newman’s Parochial and Plain Sermons. It is also shown that the conceptualisation of “The Christian Life” is based on conceptual blending between conventional metaphors functioning in everyday English and the transcendental conceptual domain of “Christianity”. The book will be of interest to linguists, particularly those interested in cognitive linguistics, as well as to theologians, especially those focused on the theory of preaching, and to everyone interested in the legacy of John Henry Newman.

Conscience in the Parochial and Plain Sermons of John Henry Newman by Fabio Attard Summary
A theme rightly associated with the personality of John Henry Newman is that of conscience. To the general reader, Newman's life story comes across as a witness of someone who followed the light of his conscience wherever it lead him. Yet, for those who decide to enter into a more familiar knowledge of the man, it will soon become clear that the meaning of conscience in his life goes much deeper than was originally thought. The main aim of this book is to discover what Newman understands by the term conscience in a particular period of his life, that which stretches from 1816 to 1843, his Anglican period. Within this particular period we find two sources that are intimately linked with one another. They are his sermons, the Parochial and Plain Sermons, and the varied biographical events as they come across to us through his Letters and Diaries. This book aims to find in these two sources the answers to the question: How is Newman's own understanding of conscience within the Parochial and Plain Sermons related to his personal life story? This question is dealt with from the standpoint of the biographical events and that of the written word. For this reason this volume is divided into two parts: The first examines the whole domain of the events, aiming to highlight the importance they hold for the theme of conscience. The second is directly concerned with Newman's writing on conscience within the Parochial and Plain Sermons. Contents: The discovery of Conscience 1816-1825; Advocacy of Conscience 1825-1832; Advocacy of Conscience 1833-1843; The reason behind the sermon; Analysis of the term Conscience; Conclusion.

Pilgrim Journey John Henry Newman 1801 by Vincent Ferrer Blehl Summary
This new study of Newman's religious development, from his childhood to his conversion to Roman Catholicism, explores Newman's growth in holiness and truth, i.e. religious truth, and the mutual influence of one upon the other. The former, the author states, 'is the more difficult to explore, since it involves not only a study of words and actions but of his inner life and motivation, which are often hidden.' This exploration is undertaken here with the aid of materials not hitherto fully exploited: verses, sermons, prayers and letters both by and to Newman. The detailed treatment of Newman's inner life as revealed in his private journals - not intended for publication - shows the continuity and change involved in his growth in holiness in their proper perspective, and how his early rigorous self-examination, meditation and assiduous study of the whole of the Scriptures produced the flowering of 'realizations of the Christian mysteries, full of psychological insights and abounding in quotations from Scripture', of the Parochial and Plain Sermons.
The Dream of Gerontius by Cardinal John Henry Newman,Maurice Egan Summary
The Dream of Gerontius, first published in 1865, is Cardinal Newman's epic poem describing the descent of Gerontius, an Everyman character, into death and Purgatory.The poem opens with the old man's realization that his time has come. And once he has died, the story follows his soul through an encounter with angels and demons as he approaches the judgment of God.Dramatists will find this an interesting interpretation of the Christian vision of life after death.British theologian JOHN HENRY CARDINAL NEWMAN (1801-1890), a leading figure in both the Church of England and, after his conversion, the Roman Catholic Church, was known as "The Father of the Second Vatican Council." His Parochial and Plain Sermons (1834-42) is considered the best collection of sermons in the English language. He is also the author of A Grammar of Assent (1870).
The Modern Age, 1789-1889 by Hughes Oliphant Old Summary
This sixth volume of Hughes Oliphant Old's monumental, acclaimed study of preaching throughout history, The Modern Age, tells the story of preaching and worship from the French Revolution to the fall of the Berlin Wall (1789-1989). During this period preaching continued to support the historic Christian faith while the church undertook to resist secularization, come to grips with biblical criticism, and initiate bold overseas missions. Opening with the revived Catholic Order of Preachers, continental Protestants such as Abraham Kuyper, and the self-consciously modern preaching of Friedrich Schleiermacher, Old moves on to consider Victorian figures such as John Henry Newman and Charles Haddon Spurgeon. He carefully lays out the tensions between Old and New School Calvinism as well as the beginnings of black preaching and the great American tradition of Charles Finney, Dwight L. Moody, Harry Emerson Fosdick, and many more. In the twentieth century Old's focus falls on the crises of the two world wars, especially the courageous ministries of German, Dutch, and Hungarian preachers during the Third Reich.
The Anglican Spirit by Michael Ramsey Summary
"Of such figures in the twentieth century, there is no doubt at all that Michael Ramsey is among the most eminent and among the most deeply loved. This book is a treasure, a digest of some of his most significant academic work that can be read by anyone at all who is seeking to know and love God more. At a time of struggle and uncertainly for the Anglican Communion, his is a voice urgently needed, and it is a delight to see this new edition."--Rowan Williams Archbishop Michael Ramsey was one of the church's most remarkable twentieth-century saints--wise and humble, humorous and compassionate. These introductory lectures on Anglicanism reveal the breadth of Ramsey's theological understanding, his ecumenism, and his vision of the church and the Christian life. Informal and conversational in style, the lectures offer an overview of Anglican theology, spirituality, and history. Ramsey begins with Anglicanism's enduring characteristics, including its dependence on Scripture, tradition--the ancient writers of the church who guide us in interpreting the Bible--and reason, our God-given capacity for divine revelation. Next Ramsey explores its teachings on theology and the sacraments, Tractarianism and the Oxford Movement, the renaissance of Anglican religious communities, and the evolving doctrines of creation, incarnation, and the Holy Spirit. The final section presents Ramsey's theology of the church and Anglicanism's relationship to Rome and the Orthodox churches.

John Henry Newman by Peter C. Wilcox Summary
John Henry Newman (1801-1890) was a man who sought to integrate life and holiness. He believed that the spiritual life needed to be lived in an active and dynamic way, touching a person's fundamental attitudes and actions. Although Newman rejected the title of spiritual director as such, it is obvious from his correspondence that directing others through various facets of the Christian life was one of his dominant concerns. Surprisingly, comparatively little has been written about Newman's idea of spiritual direction. This book investigates Newman's understanding of spiritual direction during his life as a Roman Catholic, 1845-1890. It examines the major areas in which Newman gave spiritual direction through an analysis of the correspondence from his Catholic years. It also explicates those principles of Newman's own spiritual life that found expression in his direction of others. Newman had a mammoth "apostolate of correspondence." His Letters and Diaries have been edited and published in a series of thirty-two volumes, embracing more than twenty thousand letters. The first ten volumes deal with Newman's Anglican period; the remaining twenty-two volumes cover his Catholic period and are the primary source for this book. These volumes have been studied chronologically in order to determine and extract the major areas in which Newman gave spiritual direction to others, and to investigate the stages of development in his spiritual advice.

Newman the Oratorian by John Henry Newman Summary
The unpublished Oratory Papers of Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman edited with an Introductory Study on the Continuity between his Anglican and his Catholic Ministry. These are Newman's Chapter Addresses and other writings on the purpose and characteristics of Oratorian life. As Superior, Newman wanted his community to consist of responsible persons bound together by tact and discretion, obeying an unwritten law of love. He exercised endless patience in his desire to preserve this 'weaponless state' of the Oratory in spite of tensions, dissensions, opposition and even separation. Each paper has been transcribed from the original manuscripts in the Birmingham Oratory Archives, and has been provided with a succinct introduction and notes. The editor has, moreover, furnished a full-length introductory study on Newman's spirituality as a priest against the background of the Anglican Ministry (1824-45), since it is true to say that Newman learned to live as a priest while still an Anglican. Four major areas of his Anglican ministry - the Care of Souls, Preaching, the Eucharistic Ministry and Prayer - have been closely examined both in themselves and in their renewed appearance in Newman's life as a Catholic priest. The editor, Fr Placid Murray, is a Benedictine monk of Glenstal Abbey, Ireland.
