Faith and Prejudice
Publisher: Assumption Press
Publication Date: December 28, 2013
Faith and Prejudice: Catholic Sermons of Bl. John Henry Newman is a collection of sermons from one of the most beloved figures in Catholic history. This impressive hardcover edition includes sermons that were unpublished during Newman’s lifetime, plus his final sermon delivered in the Church of England. Pope Benedict XVI praised Newman for “the warmth and humanity underlying his appreciation of the pastoral ministry," which are on full display within this book. Those seeking inspiration will find these unusually deep insights into faith, culture and human nature insightful and uplifting. In addition to his eloquent style, readers will be fascinated by how prophetically he identifies future societal challenges posed by the advance of secularism in society--issues still relevant today. A timeless classic with wit, intelligence, warmth and insight into faith: Faith and Prejudice should have its rightful place on every library shelf.
St. John Henry Newman (1801-1890) was a poet and theologian. One of the most beloved writers and saints of English Christianity, he was first an Anglican priest and founder of the Oxford Movement, and later became a Catholic priest and cardinal. His autobiography, Apologia Pro Vita Sua, is one of the great Christian classics.
