Overview

Vatican II issued an urgent call for the laity to take a more active role in the life of the Church. What should the life of the Christian believer be like? How are average lay Christians called to help save the world? How does theology fit into the picture?

One of Frank Sheed's most popular books, this ideal volume for the layman shows the practical aspects of theology in the life of a Christian believer. Logic, clarity, and simplicity permeate this eminently readable book. Drawing from his fifty years of street-corner preaching, as well as his long career as an author, lecturer and publisher, Sheed understands and communicates better than anyone the importance of theology and its relationship to living sanely in today's world. A brilliant synthesis of the Catholic view of life.

This is my second time through and I am loving and learning once again. This was the first book my spiritual director gave me to read, and i would also recommend this to you.

Aside from the Holy Bible, 'Theology and Sanity' is the most important book I've ever read. Sheed sheds so much light on the subject of God and the Church that one cannot come away from this work with the same perspective as before. Sheed is immensely instrumental in helping the Christian see God and His universe through the eyes of the Holy Catholic Church, what the author refers to as acquiring a Catholic intellect.
