William Brownlow: Convert, Scholar and Bishop by Dr Giles Mercer KSG

Bishop Brownlow  was born the son of an Anglican clergyman.  He was influenced by evangelical preaching and then was drawn towards Catholicism.  He corresponded with ECHA Podcast Artwork v2John Henry Newman, and wrote numerous books and pamphlets on the Catholic faith after his conversion.  As a priest in the diocese of Plymouth, and as Bishop of Clifton he preached and worked tirelessly for the spreading of the Gospel.  This is a fascinating introduction to this Victorian Catholic gentleman and priest who deserves to be better known.  Dr Giles Mercer KSG is  a trustee of the Clifton Diocese, and a former Headmaster of Stonyhurst and Prior Park. His full biography of Bishop Brownlow will appear in 2014.
