Lead Kindly Light, The Life of John Henry Newman By Michael Davies. The author refutes the myth of Cardinal Newman’s Liberalism and supports what Newman himself said “For thirty, forty, fifty years I have resisted to the best of my powers the spirit of Liberalism in religion.” St. Pius X came to Newman’s defense against those accusing Newman of Liberalism and said “. . . they should follow Newman the author faithfully by studying his books . . . let them understand his pure and whole principles, his lessons and inspiration. . . .” Pope Pius XII described him as “the pride of Britain and the Universal Church.” The reason that Newman can be so easily misrepresented is because relatively few Catholics are familiar with his writing. The object of this book is not simply to recount the life of England’s greatest convert but to provide the reader with sufficient selections of Newman’s writing to make it clear that St. Pius X was fully justified in exonerating him from the charge of Modernism. John Henry Newman was declared venerable on January 22, 1991. Fully illustrated, 60 lb. cream paper, smyth-sewn signatures, 240 pages, gold embossed hardcover with full color applique.
