In the three works collected here, An Essay on the Development of Doctrine, Letter to the Duke of Norfolk, and Essay on Consulting the Faithful in Matters of Doctrine, Cardinal Newman debunks Catholic myths and speaks to the religious crises of our times.
Review of this book from the Library Journal"The extensive writings of John Henry Newman (1801-90) remain important in our time. Newman, who has been advanced for canonization, was an English Catholic theologian and controversialist, poet, and musician whose rapier pen wrought devastation on his enemies. This collection of four essays includes three shorter works, The Theory of Developments in Religious Doctrine (1843), On Consulting the Faithful in Matters of Doctrine (1859), and two chapters of A Letter Addressed to His Grace the Duke of Norfolk (1874). The classic An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine (1845), which led Newman from Anglicanism to the Roman Church, is included. Compiler Gaffney provides clear commentaries on the selections he calls "revolutionary," which are useful for studies in developmental theology. This is recommended for religious collections and informed lay readers."
