 Our Description

“I want a laity, not arrogant, not rash in speech, not disputatious, but men who know their religion, who enter into it, who know just where they stand, who know what they hold and what they do not, and who know their creed so well that they can give an account of it.” John Henry Newman

To raise up Catholics who “know their creed so well that they can give an account of it,” John Henry Newman—the 19th century British Cardinal recently pronounced “Blessed” by Pope Benedict XVI—preached thousands of sermons, wrote scores of books, and published countless articles explaining our Catholic faith, with particular attention to the relationship between faith and reason.

So prodigious was Cardinal Newman’s output that only a few souls have read all he wrote.

Yet so keen was his intellect—and so profound his love for our Lord — that even those who’ve read just a few pages have profited greatly, growing quickly in knowledge, understanding, and renewed faith in God.

Now comes Dave Armstrong, himself drawn forth from Protestantism by the power of Cardinal Newman’s words. Eager to share Newman’s wisdom with others, Armstrong has mined from over forty of Cardinal Newman’s works to produce substantive passages on more than 100 topics ranging from Angels, Absolution, and the Bible, through Confession, the Eucharist, Infallibility, and the Inquisition, and reaching all the way to the Sacraments, the Saints, Transubstantiation, and the Trinity.

Armstrong selected these particular passages for their beauty, to be sure, but even more for the clarity and persuasiveness with which they present and defend so many key theological positions of our Catholic Church.

Whether you are a catechist, an apologist, a Catholic layman, or just a searcher after truth, you will find in these hundreds of passages a lucid consideration of most any Catholic teaching of serious concern to you.

Indeed, this book covers so many topics that it actually constitutes a complete education in the doctrines of the Catholic Faith.

 

"Dave Armstrong's anthology of Newman is the best I have seen – remarkable for the way it makes this monumental writer accessible to the modern reader." 
Stratford Caldecott,
Editor of Magnificat

 

"John Henry Newman is one of the most important Catholic writers, theologians and philosophers of the past two centuries. The Quotable Newman provides highlights from his magnificent work in one easy-to-read volume. This is the perfect introduction to his thought." 
Joseph Pearce,
Writer-in-Residence, the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts

 

"Cardinal Newman does not admit of sound-bites, but Dave Armstrong has done a creditable job of giving us easily digestible portions of Newman's thoughts on a host of topics, conveniently arranged in alphabetical order with a precise citation following each entry. This is a wonderful addition to Newman scholarship." 
Fr. Peter M. J. Stravinskas
