From Eastertide to Ecclesia: John Henry Newman, the Holy Spirit and the Church (Paperback)Donald Graham (author)
- We can order this
Donald Graham substantiates the claim made by many, but rarely demonstrated, that Newman anticipated concerns that preoccupy the Church today and supplied theological resources that allow us to address them in a fresh and intelligent manner. In this book Graham establishes that Newman was a pioneering thinker who must be exempted from the charge that nearly all modern theology is characterised by neglect or forgetfulness of the Holy Spirit. Grahams thoroughgoing and comprehensive exploration of Newmans ecclesial pneumatology is much more than an account of Newman s thought. It is an invitation to rethink, with Newman, the nature and mission of the sacramental community of the Church.
