And when the centenary of Cardinal Newman's death was commemorated in an ecumenical service at St Paul's Cathedral, John was invited to preach. Now, in celebration of an active ministry that spanned thirty-five years before continuing well into retirement, international Methodist, Anglican and Roman Catholic scholars have contributed essays that reflect John Newton's varied interests: Methodist history, spirituality, ecumenism, Mariology, theological education, Newman, preaching and theology. The book also includes a biography of John Newton by Henry Rack.
