    As Chadwick explains, the controversy had both political and doctrinal causes, and in the matter of politics, the Roman See was far more powerful than the African. But of course the word heresy is never invoked. But whether the influences were Anglican or Roman Catholic, the effect on the course of his life is well known. Similarly, John Newton tells of his courtship and its effect upon his life only to satisy the queries of one of his patrons. For Newman, as for Augustine, the transition from death to life involves a recognition of error and a confession of Catholic truth. Bunyan's use of the Exodus had, in turn, a profound effect upon the tradition of spiritual autobiography that followed.

    Newman uses the same sort of argument implicitly throughout the Apologia to counter the prejudices of his anti-Catholic readers, on whom the allusions to Scott's autobiography and its principle of truth would not be lost. More important for the English aucobiographer, I think, is the choice of a hermeneutic mode. His description of the stages in the process—'conviction of sin, terror, despair, news of the free and full salvation, apprehension ofChrisc, sense of pardon, assurance of salvation, joy and peace, and so on to final perseverance"—reads like an outline for a classic spiritual autobiography. When he gave to us his Tract on Fasting, he put his initials to it.

    Perhaps no one took greater offense than Protestant clergyman Charles Kingsley, whose scathing attacks against Newman's faith and honor inspired this brilliant response. To The Force of Truth Scott had appended some "Observations Apologia pro vita sua book the Foregoing Narrative," in which he argued the validity of his conversion to evangelical Christianity on the grounds that, first, as a Socinian, he was "a most unlikely person to embrace this [evangelical] system of doctrine" and that, further, he had changed his religious beliefs "without any teaching from the persons, to whose sentiments I have now acceeded" 93, In the first two chapters of the Apologia, Newman makes his account almost exclusively a series of encounters with theological texts. PDF format. Newman's response was the flowing, almost poetic prose of the Apologia Pro Vita Sua, offering a spiritual autobiographical defense to Kingsley's accusations. More important, it represents an attempt to make the theological implications of narrative absolutely clear.
