Written in the wake of publicity about the beatification of John Henry Newman (1801–1890), Cornwell's highly acclaimed biography focuses not on arguments for and against sainthood, but on Newman's character and importance as a writer. The study includes chapters devoted to each of his major works – Idea of a University, the Apologia, The Dream of Gerontius and The Grammar of Assent – and aims to reveal Newman's 'genius for creating new ways of imagining and writing about religion'.
