Website Review: New Oxford Review

A review based on: http://www.newoxfordreview.org

Description

The New Oxford Review is an orthodox Catholic magazine that explores ideas concerning faith and culture. The New Oxford Review was founded in 1977 as an Anglo-Catholic magazine in the Anglican tradition, taking its name from the 19th-century Oxford Movement. Like the Movement’s leading luminary, John Henry Newman, the NOR converted to Roman Catholicism in 1983, inspired by the dynamic, thoughtful papacy of John Paul II. The New Oxford Review has earned a reputation for addressing head-on the full range of issues confronting Holy Mother Church, and doing so with unswerving loyalty to her Pope and Magisterium. Over the years some of the leading Christian thinkers of our times have contributed to our effort to shine the light of faith in an increasingly hostile secular world, including Walker Percy, Sheldon Vanauken, Thomas Howard, Msgr. George A. Kelly, Bobby Jindal, Fr. Stanley L. Jaki, Peter Kreeft, Avery Cardinal Dulles, Germain Grisez, Fr. James V. Schall, John Lukacs, and many others. The NOR continues to present the brightest minds in Catholic journalism today. Each issue is packed with intellectual vibrancy and zeal for Christ.

In the past, CatholicCulture.org has been critical of NOR and its website because, although not guilty of doctrinal error, the publication often lacked both charity and prudence, resulting in insufficiently substantiated criticisms that were even vituperative and mocking. Too often, other Catholics were painted as enemies on the basis of inessential disagreements or judgments of motives. The editorial direction now appears to be thoroughly sound, so the only caveat is that, of course, the older material is necessarily also available on the site.
