Visitors to both my websites should make a point of reading the two books I have now made available. Turmoil and Truth and the sequal, The Catholic Church and the Counter-Faith. These books give a very clear and accessible account of the various "streams of thought" operating both within and without the Catholic Church. It is sad that both of these books are now out of print.

Mark Alder has done a marvelous service to Catholics and serious Christians with his unique website It provides a veritable library of excellent resources in apologetics, theology, philosophy and literary criticism. Perusing it is a delight and I say this not primarily because he has graciously provided me a webpage. Indeed I am honored to find myself in such distinguished company. I hope that all of us represented on this site will continue to keep the faith ablaze during this era in which "ignorant armies clash by night" for we know that Jesus is the Eternal Sun and that His Mother reflects His light to us by God's design.

In Cordibus Jesu et Marić,
Msgr. Arthur B. Calkins

Edward Short is the author of several highly acclaimed studies of Saint John Henry Cardinal Newman, including Newman and his Contemporaries (2011), Newman and his Family (2013) and Newman and History (2017).

His recently published critical edition of Newman’s Anglican Difficulties (1850) garnered praise from Ian Ker and Stephen Bullivant.  

In addition to his studies of Newman, Mr. Short's books include Adventures in the Book Pages: Essays and Reviews (2015) and Culture and Abortion (2013), both of which are available from Gracewing.  

Currently, he is at work on Newman and his Critics, which Bloomsbury will publish in 2022.

Edward Short lives in New York with his wife and two young children.
