John Henry Newman, often called 'the Father of Vatican II', is increasingly seen as the most important and influential of modern Catholic theologians. Ker claims that his potential significance for the ecumenical movement is still underestimated.This book, based on the prestigious 1992 Fisher Lectures in Cambridge, illustrates how Newman's richly varied theological education, combined with his criticisms of the defects of pre-Vatican II Catholicism, makes him a unique guide for the interpretation and further development of Vatican II.The author brings out Newman's relevance for ecumenism and evangelization, and show how his personal journey to the heart of Christianity leads the way towards unity among Christians and a full renewal of the Church.
