Apologia pro vita sua by John Henry Newman( Book )
362 editions published between 1864 and 2012 in 14 languages and held by 3,880 libraries worldwide
A passionate defense of the author's own intellectual and spiritual integrity by a man who had been under continuous attack for many years. Charles Kingsley had written: "Truth, for its own sake, had never been a virtue with the Roman clergy. Father Newman informs us that it need not, and on the whole ought not to be." Newman felt this to be an attack on his own honesty, as well as that of the Roman Catholic Church. To defend himself he felt it necessary to give the entire history of his spiritual progress over the years. This superb and moving book was the result. Its magnificent clarity as well as its beautiful prose, won the hearts as well as the minds of his countrymen and have assured the book a high place among the spiritual classics

Loss and gain : the story of a convert by John Henry Newman( Book )
109 editions published between 1848 and 2014 in English and held by 1,098 libraries worldwide
This is Newman's first novel: the story of a young man's search for faith and certainty amid the competing loyalties of early Victorian Oxford. It is remarkable as a vivid period piece and fascinating for what it reveals about Newman himself. Light-hearted and genial in spirit, and rich in comic scenes and characters, the novel challenged the easygoing values of the time, and it can still stir readers today to confront their own assumptions and priorities. It is, above all, a moving human story
The Arians of the fourth century by John Henry Newman( Book )

Cardinal Newman's study outlines the history of Arianism--a belief system asserting that Christ is not a divine but a created being--between the first and second general councils (325-381 AD). It then describes the events surrounding the resolution of the divisions caused by the teachings of Arius, a priest in fourth century AD Alexandria. Lastly, the work details how the Catholics defeated the theological challenge of Arius's doctrine

Two essays on Biblical and on ecclesiastical miracles by John Henry Newman( Book )
92 editions published between 1873 and 2012 in English and held by 814 libraries worldwide
"The essays in this volume were written when John Henry Newman was a Fellow of Oriel College, Oxford. He wrote the first, on biblical miracles "The Miracles of Scripture," in 1825-26, as a relatively young man; the other, "The Miracles of Early Ecclesiastical History," was written in 1842-43. A comparison of the two essays displays a shift in Newman's theological stances. In the earlier essay, Newman argues in accordance with the theology of evidence of his time, maintaining that the age of miracles was limited to those recorded in the Old Testament scriptures and in the Gospels and Acts. He asserts that biblical miracles served to demonstrate the divine inspiration of biblical revelation and to attest to the divinity of Christ. However, with the end of the apostolic age, the age of miracles came to an end; miracles reported from the early ages of the Church Newman dismissed as suspicious and possibly fraudulent. With this view, Newman entered into an ongoing debate between the skepticism of Hume and Paine and its continuation in the utilitarianism of Bentham, on the one hand, and the views of Christian apologists rebutting Hume's arguments, on the other. In "The Miracles of Early Ecclesiastical History," Newman can be seen as coming closer to accepting the doctrines of the Catholic Church. He rejects the stance he took in "The Miracles of Scripture," now arguing for a continuity of sacred history between the biblical and ecclesiastical periods. He had clearly abandoned the position of "evidence theologians" that miracles ended after the time of the Apostles. Newman's movement between the writing of the two essays is essentially a growing into a deeper awareness of the Church as a divine society in whose life miracles and supernatural gifts were to be expected."--Publisher's description

80 editions published between 1872 and 2011 in English and held by 751 libraries worldwide
"Discussions and Arguments on Various Subjects, volume VII in The Works of Cardinal Newman: Birmingham Oratory Millennium Edition series, is a collection of six articles, which were written between 1835, after the publication of The Arians of the Fourth Century, and 1866, when, as a Roman Catholic, Newman contributed a review to the Jesuit periodical The Month. Two of these articles appeared as Tracts for the Times; two are a series of letters to a newspaper. The letters discuss the nature of scientific knowledge as a quasi-substitute for faith, and the nature of the balance between executive power and democratic constraints. The opening essay, in the imaginary setting of the Roman forum, is a discussion between three friends of the nature of the via media, its shortcomings, and how it can be made to work. This book has been unavailable for many years and contains some of Newman's best and most amusing writing, scattered throughout with historical and literary references, which have been extensively researched for the modern reader in this edition." -- Publisher's description
