Nicholas King SJ

1 POSTS0 COMMENTS
Nicholas King SJ is a Jesuit priest, who taught for many years in South Africa, at Cedara in KZN, and at St John Vianney Seminary in Pretoria. He was there for the most interesting piece of the history of the country and had the privilege of being a District Observer for seven voting stations in the Natal Midlands on that never-to-be-forgotten day of our first democratic elections. Since then he has been teaching New Testament at Oxford University; he taught briefly also at Boston College and St Mary’s Twickenham, and finally at Heythrop College before it closed. Now he has returned to Oxford as Assistant Catholic Chaplain and is also the Delegate for Formation for the Jesuits in Britain. In recent years he has published a translation of the entire Bible from the Greek — and one or two other volumes.

Nick King, a British Jesuit priest and biblical scholar, who ministered in South Africa for many years and now lives and works in Oxford, delves into Newman’s life in search of what, perhaps, really makes him a saint.
