Frank Turner on John Henry Newman and Development
An Example of Eisegesis

The late Frank M. Turner’s revisionist biography, John Henry Newman: The Challenge to Evangelical Religion has caused controversy. This essay considers one of Turner’s controversial contentions, namely, that Newman’s Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine (1845) is a naturalistic account of the history of the Christian church—an account devoid of the presence of Providence.
