Apologia Pro Vita Sua - John Henry Newman
Author: John Henry Newman
Publisher: Dover Publications
Pages: 480 PB
When John Henry Newman--a hugely influential figure in the Church of England--left his position as vicar of St. Mary's, Oxford, in 1843 to join the Roman Catholic Church, the Anglican community was stunned.
Perhaps no one took greater offense than Protestant clergyman Charles Kingsley. It was Kingsley's scathing attacks against Newman's faith and honor that inspired this brilliant response.
Apologia Pro Vita Sua explores the depths and nature of Christianity with flowing prose and a conversation style that has ensured its status as a classic work. Unabridged republication of the work as published by Longmans, Green and Company, London, 1908.
