Map of Life by F. J. Sheed

2016 Reprint of 1933 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. This is a carefully made summary of the dogmatic teaching of the Catholic Church, making clear the content of Catholic doctrine. It provides the reader with an opportunity to get a firm hold on that body of truth-speculative and practical-that lies behind the steady spiritual development of the modern Catholic. Considered one of Frank Sheed's most accessible works, it is also considered as one of the best and most popular short summaries of the Catholic faith.

The problem of life's purpose -- The problem of life's laws -- Heaven -- The creation and fall -- The incarnation -- The mystical body -- Truth : (A.) the teaching church -- Truth : (B.) the mystery of the Trinity -- Law and sin -- Law and suffering -- The supernatural life : (A.) how it comes to the soul -- The supernatural life : (B.) how it works in the soul -- Hell -- Purgatory : Heaven.

Hard read at times but great book for theology.

Great information in this book. Very sound in explanations. Sometimes a little more explanation than I expected. But I learned alot. There are many typos that you need to just read around... but it does not affect the message.

A clear, concise, orthodox explanation of the Catholic Faith. Sheed is so good at articulating his message in a common sense down to earth manner. One of Sheed’s best. Recommended for people from all walks of life who desire a simple, no nonsense treatise of what Catholics believe and why. Highly recommend
