Meet the Author

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979), one of the 20th century's best-known and loved Catholic prelates, was a lecturer, professor, philosopher, preacher, and writer. A radio and television personality, he is widely regarded as the original media luminary for the spiritual world. This former director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith leaves behind an enormous written and oral history. In addition to two weekly syndicated newspaper columns that ran for close to two decades, he authored scores of books.

    Not The Work of Sheen

    This book claims to be a compilation of essays written by the late Archbishop Fulton Sheen. It is not. Bishop Sheen was, without argument, one of the greatest homilists and apologists (i.e. defender) of the Catholic faith in the 20th century. He wrote several spectacular books that showed the defects in the arguments of the secular-humanists and modernists. The book 'In The Fullness of Time' contains one or more essays that were NOT written by Archbishop Sheen. In particular, one essay (Chapter 16 - 'Personality: Earth and Heaven') is an endorsement of the Jesuit freak Pierre Teilhard De Chardin. This essay was NOT written by Sheen, yet it is presented as if Sheen endorsed the erroneous arguments of De Chardin. Teilhard De Chardin was a Jesuit priest with a doctorate in Anthropology. In something that borders on the insane, he tried to re-invent Christianity in to some bizarre mix of anthropology, evolution, cosmology, and theology. He argued that humanity was evolving and progressing to some pan-theistic state of perfection ... a new-aged paganism ... and that Christianity was a part of this process. The Catholic Church, in 1948, refused to publish De Chardin's book 'Phenomenon of Man' because of the errors it contained. This was repeated in 1949 when the Church refused to publish his other book 'The Human Zoological Group'. De Chardin used other mechanisms to have his books published, so in 1962 Pope John XXIII issused a 'moristum' (i.e. warning) against the teachings and works of De Chardin because they contained serious errors. If you are in search of authentic writings by the late Archbishop Sheen, then you will NOT find it in this book. Rather, go to your local library and see if there are any books written by Sheen in the collection. If the copyright is earlier than 1979 (the year he died) then you can consider the book authentic. The book 'In the Fullness of Time' is best described as deceptive.
