R. Heber Newton
Richard Heber Newton (31 October 1840 – 19 December 1914) was a prominent American Episcopalian priest and writer. He was rector of All Souls' Protestant Episcopal Church in New York City from 1869–1902. He was a leader in the Social Gospel movement, a supporter of Higher Criticism of the Bible, and sought to unify Christian churches in the United States.
In 1883 he was accused of heresy for a series of sermons later published in a book, The Right and Wrong Uses of the Bible. He was again accused in 1884 and 1891 but the bishop, Henry Codman Potter, refused to go forward.
