Ian Ker is a leading Newman scholar. He is the author of several books about Newman.From Library Journal:
An excellent, very readable summary of Cardinal Newman's intellectual achievement and its meaning for contemporary Christians by Oxford's Catholic chaplain. In five chapters enlivened by copious quotations from Newman, Ker provides an analysis of Newman's contribution as an educator, philosopher, preacher, theologian, and writer. While each chapter offers significant insights, Ker's most original contribution lies in his attempt to credit Newman with an original theory of knowledge and enduring significance as a philosopher, in contrast to the view of Frederick Copleston. Anglican readers will find particular interest in Ker's depiction of Newman's anti-Anglican polemics. For all academic and seminary collections of Catholic thought.
