Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Archbishop Sheen was a gifted and well-loved writer, orator and early television personality whose weekly show, Life Is Worth Living, ran on ABC-TV and radio from 1951 to 1957, reaching an estimated 30 million viewers before it stopped and making Sheen one of the most popular personalities in mid-20th century America. Now, in honor of the centennial of his birth, the Archbishop's work is being commemorated by a compilation of selected materials from his published essays and television scripts. Divided into three categories (Mind, Heart, Spirit), these pieces cut deeply and honestly to the heart of the reader. This is a powerful selection. It should be savored not only by those who remember enjoying Sheen but also by all who would like simply to read something excellent. (Apr.)
Library Journal
Forty years ago, one of the most popular figures on television was a Roman Catholic bishop, Fulton J. Sheen. A prolific author and an inveterate popularizer of Catholic dogma, Sheen reached into the hearts and souls of millions with his messages of practical spiritual help. This collection draws upon Sheen's many works to offer up the bishop's advice to a new generation. Here we find guidance on, among other issues, practicing charity, understanding and engaging the depths of love, and finding lasting happiness. Sheen's sparkling wit and incisive intellect make these pieces treasures to be collected. For most large public libraries.
