About This Book
THE NIGHT IS GONE: Why Pope Francis Canonizes Cardinal Newman is ‘a keynote address’ to the world on the coming canonization of one of the greatest Christian thinkers of our times, John Henry Newman, - a theologian who had the most robust power on the Second Vatican Council. As we hold our breathe to hear him declared Doctor of the Church, the book offers a vital key to appreciating the timelessness of his scholarship, his moral emotional susceptibilities, and the spiritual energies of one of our most dazzling saints and scholars, widely admired for holiness of life, the clarity of his theological style, an outcome of his challenging, disciplined and measured life. Topics range from John Henry Newman’s relevance today to the primacy of mercy; from new evangelization and the Pontificate of Francis to the enlargement of the mind and African theology. Combining the best of Newman’s thought provoking theological strokes and literary elegance in a securely woven and delicate discourse, this book addresses not only Saint Newman’s importance today, but how he will continue to be important in a future, uncertain world. In this way, THE NIGHT IS GONE: Why Pope Francis Canonizes Cardinal Newman burnishes Gerald Jumbam Nyuykongmo’s credentials as a brilliant living Newman scholar.
