Amazon.com description: Product Description: John Henry Cardinal Newman begins the 'Essay' with a definition of development, pointing out that the real problem is how to distinguish true developments from corruptions and decays. He then goes on to a sweeping consideration of the growth and development of doctrine in the Catholic Church, from the time of the Apostles to Newman's own era. He demonstrates that the basic ""rule"" under which Christianity proceeded through the centuries is to be found in the principle of development, and emphasized that throughout the entire life of the Church this law of development has been in effect and safeguards the faith from any real corruption.

About: One of the founders behind the Oxford Movement in England in the 1830's and early 1840's, Cardinal John Henry Newman's research into Church history troubled him because he did not realize how far the Church of England had drifted in essence and principles from those of the early Church.

About: The following pages were not in the first instance written to prove the divinity of the Catholic Religion, though ultimately they furnish a positive argument in its behalf, but to explain certain difficulties in its history, felt before now by the author himself, and commonly insisted on by Protestants in controversy, as serving to blunt the force of its primâ facie and general claims on our recognition.
