Synopsis: The present work analyzes John Henry Newman's (1801-90) notion of first principles. This notion plays a key role in his solution to the problem: why do some people accept the Christian message, while others do not? A survey of Newman's works shows that this notion covers four different types of principles. The thesis offers a fundamental theological analysis of the chain of first principles, which - according to Newman - are required for faith in God and in Christ. It also indicates that Newman's theory can only be fruitful in a theistic environment.

About the Author: The Author: Rik Achten was born in Belgium in 1958. He received a doctorate in theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University (Rome, 1993). He is currently serving as Roman Catholic parish priest in Elsloo (Netherlands) and also teaches fundamental theology at the major Seminary Rolduc, Kerkrade.
