Two glowing reviews by Dr. Jeff Mirus (one / two)

Fr. Peter M. J. Stravinskas, in The Catholic Response (Vol. IX, No. 4, Jan / Feb 2013, p. 58):

Cardinal Newman does not admit of sound-bites but Dave Armstrong has done a creditable job of giving us easily digestible portions of Newman’s thoughts on a host of topics, conveniently arranged in alphabetical order with a precise citation following each entry. This is a wonderful addition to Newman scholarship.

Stratford Caldecott, Editor of Magnificat:

Dave Armstrong’s anthology of Newman is the best I have seen remarkable for the way it makes this monumental writer accessible to the modern reader.

Joseph Pearce, Writer-in-Residence, the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts:

John Henry Newman is one of the most important Catholic writers, theologians and philosophers of the past two centuries. The Quotable Newman provides highlights from his magnificent work in one easy-to-read volume. This is the perfect introduction to his thought.

Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman: “Father” of Vatican II (Links Page)

This was for many years the most extensive web page devoted to Cardinal Newman, besides Newman Reader, that contained his actual books. It was active from 1997 to 2016, when it was discontinued. At this link one can still see archived versions of the page, which show how very comprehensive it was: and many of the links are still functional even now.
