World on Neuhaus
Mindy Belz provides some nice biographical info on Neuhaus in World...
Richard John Neuhaus, 72, editor in chief of First Things, president of the Institute on Religion and Public Life, and author of numerous books, died Jan. 8 in New York City....Neuhaus began his ecclesiastical career in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and led an African-American congregation in Brooklyn, where he became a civil-rights advocate, marching in Selma, Ala., alongside Martin Luther King Jr. He became a national figure when he broke with the conservative Protestant denomination to join the Roman Catholic Church....in 1990.
Belz then quotes Richard N. Ostling:
"He was skeptical of the right wing of his denomination but also of the National Council of Churches and mainline denominations. As a Roman Catholic, he became a real leader of the conservative, pro-Vatican, traditionalist flank of the Catholic Church....a powerful voice in the pro-life movement..."
