ABSTRACT
This article critically appraises the book "John Henry Newman: A Biography," by Ian Ker. Ker examines Newman's writings with a theologian's precision. If a reader is not interested in a particular aspect of Newman's theology, it is easy to skip that section without losing the flow of the biography. This book will be particularly enjoyed by those who already have some knowledge of the Oxford Movement and the Victorian Church. By presenting us with so many quotations from Newman's letters and his lesser known works, his biographer reminds us of the Cardinal's gift for the short aphorism such as `Human nature is not republlcan.
