The key idea of the course is that a thorough formation of the Christian in the Church, is the great answer to the faith crisis affecting the Church today. John Henry Newman’s idea of the Church and on formation(education) is the central subject here. In this course, four dominant things about Newman and Church formation would be examined: Revelation, the reality of the Church, Newman’s preoccupation with Dogma and finally Education. The course shall take into serious consideration the epitaph Newman chose for himself: “From shadows and images into truth” and his coat of arms: “Heart Speaks to Heart”. It shall also explore formation of consciences in the light of John Henry Newman, and, in this case, it is formed most especially by the Church’s abiding teachings, and not merely the counsels of self-will.
