In his new book, PROGRESSIVE ILLUMINATION: A JOURNEY WITH CARDINAL JOHN HENRY NEWMAN, Edward J. Ondrako, a Conventual Franciscan priest, offers a modern take on the philosophy of John Henry Newman, from inter-faith solidarity, to the need of theology in liberal arts education, to papal infallibility. Ondrako dusts off the teachings of Newman, and applies them to questions of doctrine, philosophy, and current events, presenting a scholarly perspective based in years of rigorous research and personal growth. Ondrako himself has taught and served in campus ministry at such star universities as Cornell, Columbia, Syracuse, and Princeton. Whether you are a believer or non-believer, Newman’s writings are especially relevant in today’s global, post 9/11 society, and help to shed new light on the problems of a turbulent modern world, while offering real solutions.

Edward Ondrako s Progressive Illumination is a remarkable reflection on the convergence of thought between Cardinal Newman s Idea of a University and the Japanese translation of Mill s On Liberty by Nakamura Masanao. Ondrako views each drawing independently on his mature cultural traditions to suggest a common basis for a liberal education responsive to the challenge of what some call the inevitable clash of civilizations. --Wm. Theodore de Bary, Columbia University John Mitchell Mason Professor and Provost Emeritus
Written in a pastoral voice as university chaplain and focusing on the primacy of conscience, Fr. Ondrako blends his Franciscan intellectual tradition, Vatican II the thought of Cardinal Newman with the writing of John Paul II and Benedict XVI. The essays are chock full of insights that will appeal to university students and to any student of Cardinal Newman. --Mary K. Tillman, Professor Emeritus at University of Notre Dame
Fr. Ondrako s reflection on Newman s lifelong struggle to square authority with truth are both learned and winsome. The essays demonstrate the spirit of Vatican II as alive and well in Roman Catholic circles. For non-Catholic observers, these essays offer insight into the positive interplay of obedience and intellectual honesty in Catholic circles today. --Rev. Dr. Thomas Breidenthal, Anglican, University Chaplain at Princeton
