Few Catholic thinkers have left as deep and permanent a mark on the intellectual, cultural, and pastoral life of the church as John Cardinal Newman. His writings on faith, An Essay in Aid of a Grammar of Assent, and his own conversion, Apologia pro Vita Sua, as well as his countless letters on papal infallibility and the sanctity of Mary remain profoundly influential for our times. World-renowned Newman scholar Roderick Strange sheds new light in Newman 101 on the controversies and achievements that defined the life and brilliance of this great mind.

“An engaging introduction.”
“This short book, written in a reader-friendly style by an expert on the famous British intellectual, Cardinal John Henry Newman, provides an engaging introduction to Newman that should be of interest both to people who are interested in getting acquainted with his life and thought, as well as to people already familiar with his biography and writings.”

“Insightful and surprising.”
“Roderick Strange's book on Newman is both insightful and surprising. It should appeal to Newman novices like me, but also to anyone who seeks an intellectual and spiritual portrait of a challenging man.”
