Life Of Christ
In my opinion, of the sixty-six books written by Sheen, LIFE OF CHRIST is the Venerable Archbishop’s finest. It was required reading for every one of the courses on Catholicism that I gave in New York City (1995-2005).

This is a great and moving book. The book inspired and educated me and I recommend this book to every one
I decided to read this during Lent, as part of my preparation for Easter. It was a providential decision. Bishop Sheen's profound ability to clearly and accurately express the boundless depths of Christ's life, and the meaning of His cross, is superb.
Reading this book, one realizes that it is much more than an academic work; it is a book of meditation and a companion on our journeys toward knowing Christ intimately in love.
Don't hesitate to read this scholarly work because Bishop Sheen is able to present Christ in a way that can easily be understood by all readers. It is a book for Priests, scholars, and lay people. It penetrates, like a spear, directly into the heart.
More relevant today than ever before!
Fulton Sheen has a way of making the life of Christ easier to understand and I think needs to be read once a year.
