About this Book:

Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen was an influential figure in the Catholic Church throughout the 1950s and 60s, particularly because of his television shows and use of media to spread God's message. The man was more than just his television persona. Bishop Sheen wrote 73 books in his lifetime and imparted wisdom to the masses from his prominent platform with joy and warmth.

This book captures his wisdom in a concise volume. The lively writings included in this book demonstrate Sheen's signature clarity in teaching spirituality. Organized by theme, the book introduces readers to the bishop's thoughts on God's fire, human freedom, Divine love, sin, and knowing Jesus. The writings were carefully selected and compiled by Alexis Walkenstein, an advocate for the cause of Fulton J. Sheen and a notable Catholic media figure. Her love of this holy man helps communicate his vigor for life, his affection for all people, and his encouraging ideas about the faith and God's love for us.

Sheen's words speak for themselves in providing a vital lifeline of clarity to the Catholic faith. This volume brings together his most powerful thoughts and presents them to even the most unfamiliar reader. Whether readers have known Bishop Sheen since his days on TV or they are just meeting him now, this book gives a valuable sense of his important spiritual ideas.

Katherine Bogner says...
I was super excited for this book to arrive in my mailbox- Fulton Sheen is one of my very favorite writers and teachers. This author has pulled together some favorite, powerfully themed writings from several of Sheens books and then organized them topically in this compact 120 page book. If youve never read Sheen, this would be a great place to start. With the smaller chunks of writing, you can choose a topic (in any order) and read the 2-3 page chapter. If you love it, the chapters are organized by themes, so you can read the section. And if that really speaks to you, you can find the original sources of Sheens writings and dive into one of his full length books. If you have read Sheen, this little book is a nice companion. Sometimes he packs so much content and thought into his text that a meaningful passage can get lost in a 400 page book. Here, you wont miss the message and can reread as your heart desires. Ive been carrying this book around in my purse during Lent. When I need to fill five minutes here and there I can pull it out have found it easy to pick up and put down while still gathering great spiritual fruit. ***Pauline Books & Media provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
