Newman: A Short Biography


Michael Collins

 “exceedingly accessible…functions as a wonderful introduction to the life of the newly canonized saint.”

“…an excellent introduction to Newman the man, his times and his faith journey…engaging page-turner…” Africa magazine

John Henry Newman was made a saint on 13th October 2019, the first English saint to be canonised since 1970. He was an important and controversial figure in the religious history of England in the 19th century.

An esteemed academic, prolific author and convert from the Church of England to Catholicism, Newman combined the best of both the Anglican and Catholic traditions.

Newman: A Short Biography, by Michael Collins is an essential, accessible biography of the new saint that opens a window into the heart and mind of a complex and conflicted individual, who above all sought the truth.
