Lead Kindly Light
Essays for Ian Ker
Seventeen distinguished scholars have contributed to this festschrift published in honour of Fr Ian Ker, the greatest living Newman scholar. Their highly original contributions offer novel insights into the life and thought of St John Henry Newman and, in one case, of G. K. Chesterton, too. Intended for the general reader as well as the specialist, these lucid and compelling essays explore key facets of the man of letters, preacher, theologian, educator and social critic that Newman was, as well as his rich personality. They add weight to the growing body of evidence that Newman should one day be declared a Doctor of the Church.
