This rich anthology of John Henry Newman's writings on Mary introduces readers to the spiritual journey and personal devotion of one of the greatest churchmen of the last two hundred years in the English-speaking world. Drawing from the full range of Newman's work -- his letters and sermons, his spiritual and poetic writings, and his liturgical, pastoral, and theological texts -- this book is a clear guide to the progression of Newman's thought.Newman contemplates Mary's place and dignity in the ensemble of Catholic doctrine as consequent on the doctrine of the Incarnation. Grounded in Scripture and the writings of the Church Fathers, Newman's thinking is penetrating and balanced. He illuminates the teaching of the Catholic Church on Mary, and he draws an important distinction between immutable doctrine and devotion, which can take many and varying expressions. Likewise, Newman's writing serves as a bridge between Catholics and Protestants. His sensitivity in dealing with Marian themes owes much to his personal experience of the ingrained suspicion in the minds of non-Catholics toward the church's veneration of Mary, which, as a convert himself, he was well able to appreciate.

This rich anthology of John Henry Newman's writings on Mary introduces readers to the personal devotion of one of the greatest churchmen of the last two hundred years in the English-speaking world. Drawing from the full range of Newman's work -- his letters and sermons, his spiritual and poetic writings, and his liturgical, pastoral, and theological texts -- this book is a dear guide to the progression of Newman's thought on and spiritual response to the Virgin Mary.^These selected writings, together with a helpful introduction and notes by editor Philip Boyce, reveal how Newman contemplated Mary's place and dignity in the ensemble of Catholic doctrine. Grounded in Scripture and the thought of the Church Fathers, Newman's thinking illuminates the teaching of the Catholic Church on Mary while also drawing a distinction between immutable doctrine and devotion. Important too is the way that Newman's writing serves as a bridge between Catholics and Protestants.
