Newman and the Interpretation of Inspired Scripture

[The author argues that the relative neglect in recent biblical scholarship regarding Newman’s understanding of Scripture during his Anglican years in favor of his late, controversial works has led to broad, sweeping statements of his thought during that period. Tracing a short history of recent scholarship and, drawing from two key works of Newman published in 1838, the author illustrates how a close textual reading, one sensitive to historical methodology, offers a more accurate portrait of Newman’s lifelong engagement with Scripture and the doctrine of inspiration.]
