About "Newman and Truth (#39 in Louvain Theological & Pastoral Monographs Series)"
John Henry Newman (1801-1890) chose as his epitaph the words, 'Ex umbris et imaginibus in veritaten' ('Out of shadows and images into the truth'). These words are more than the expression of Newman's hope for the future. They summarize his lifelong quest to penetrate ever more deeply into the mystery of God's relationship to humankind and the ways in which men and women are able to gain insight into that relationship. This collection of papers reflects on Newman's understanding of the nature of truth's survival in the contemporary world. At the same time, it provides a critical reflection on the continuing significance of Newman's thought. The collection includes contributions by Colin Barr, Michael J. Buckley, Brian Daley, Paul J. Griffiths, Keith Hanley, Ian Ker, Terrence Merrigan, and John Milbank.
