I once wrote in John Henry Newman: 1801-1890, that: “The increasing reception to Newman’s religious thought within the sphere of the Church draws the attention again to the events and drama of the life which holds the key to adequately interpreting his thinking.Newman’s doctrine is intensely autobiographical, and the author never hides behind his ideas or words.”

In John Henry Newman: Passion for Truth, Father Juan R. Vélez has managed to sketch well the first half of Venerable Newman’s fruitful and active life, and to present the main doctrinal ideas, which Newman followed in his unflagging pursuit of Religious Truth. I think that many will read this book with interest.
