Ian Ker has taught both English literature and theology at universities in both the United States and Britain, where he is currently a member of the University of Oxford theology faculty. He is the author and editor of more than twenty books on John Henry Newman, including the standard biography, reissued with additional material in 2009. His other books include The Catholic revival in English Literature, 1845-1961 and G. K. Chesterton: A Biography.

Ian Ker presents a major collection of Newman's writings, celebrating his full achievements as both a universally significant religious thinker, and a major Victorian writer. An unsystematic thinker, Newman's ideas are scattered throughout his works - most of which were 'occasional' in their origin. This anthology provides a rich and varied sampling from his voluminous works, drawing our attention to some of the very finest passages in Newman's writings whether selected from his well-known publications or from occasional texts that are difficult to find in print. The selection is divided into five sections, which focus on his life as an educator, a philosopher, a preacher, a theologian, and a writer.
