This week, we share the second half of a talk from Bishop Barron on John Henry Newman’s book The Grammar of Assent. We shared the first half last week, so be sure to listen to that first.
The Grammar of Assent concerns question about how we come to believe in God, and is widely considered Newman’s most important text.
Also, it’s a timely topic, since John Henry Newman will be canonized in just a couple weeks, on October 13. Bishop Barron will be attending the canonization, then a few days later will deliver a talk at Oxford University on “John Henry Newman and the New Evangelization.” That talk, which we’re planning to livestream, will focus primarily on The Grammar of Assent.
