'In another world it is otherwise, but here below to live is to change, and to be perfect is to have changed often.' From An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine (1903) Saint John Henry Newman was one of the most controversial and influential thinkers of his day, and his many writings have remained highly influential since his death in August 1890. He is also widely regarded as one of the finest prose stylists of modern times, as well as a popular poet and hymn-writer. Published to coincide with Newman's canonization by Pope Francis in October 2019, this engaging and judicious introduction to Newman' life and legacy will be welcomed by newcomers and seasoned enthusiasts alike.
