God and the world explained — by Bishop Sheen, the T.V. personality who captivated the nation and won countless converts.

In the 1950s, Fulton J. Sheen was one of the most popular television personalities in America, captivating millions of prime-time viewers weekly with enlightening talks on the essentials of Christianity and the moral life.

Relying on the same wise, lucid explanations that won the hearts of so many viewers, Archbishop Sheen here demonstrates that Christianity makes good sense — even to persons with no religious background.

Indeed, argues Sheen, Christianity alone is able to explain the goodness we encounter in the universe and the evil; it alone makes sense of our impulses to love and to sacrifice and our repeated failures to do so.

Along the way, Bishop Sheen shows you
(among countless other things):

  • How conscience proves the existence of God
  • Why sacrifice is the road to lasting happiness
  • Why there must be both a heaven and a hell, and
  • What you must do to find your proper place in God’s world.

  • If you’re not a Christian, you’ll come away with a sure sense of why so many good people are. If you’re already Christian, you’ll come to understand your faith better, learn to explain it to others, and grow in gratitude for God’s gift of this world and the glorious role He has called you to play in it.

    A Book Everyone Should Read!
    Fulton Sheen writes a very thorough book for those just getting their feet wet with Christianity, but there is also a lot of great stuff for those more advanced in their studies. Between his incredible breadth of knowledge and his passion, there is plenty for all to enjoy. He covers the basics: God and free will, good vs. evil, marriage, religious life, Heaven, Purgatory, Hell and losing one's life to find it.
    
    Though this isn't an apologetics book, there is a lot of information that will help anyone (even those not Catholic) further understand what they believe and be better able to explain it to others. Sheen has such a way with words, that you can't read this book and not feel a greater love for Jesus. Highly recommended!
