September 24 issue, now online
If you’ve been enjoying Joseph A. Komonchak’s many “Newmania” posts here at dotCommonweal, consider them an appetizer course for the latest issue of the magazine. It’s online now, and you can all click here to read Fr. Komonchak’s survey of the writings and theology of newly beatified Cardinal John Henry Newman.
Also in this issue, Frank Oveis reviews the new biography Newman’s Unquiet Grave, by John Cornwell: ‘Credo in Newmanum’. And the Last Word essay by Mary Frances Coady reports on a visit to Newman’s rooms in Birmingham and reflects on his relationship with fellow convert Gerard Manley Hopkins: The Upstairs Room (subscriber log-in required).
Non-Newman highlights include Birth Rights, Eduardo Peñalver’s report on the campaign against the Fourteenth Amendment and “birthright citizenship,” and our editorial on the GOP’s enthusiasm for tax cuts, An Expensive Loyalty. And subscribers can log in to read a terrific essay by Jeffrey Stout, Liberty for All, on what is required of a republic committed to “liberty.”
