 Our Description

Life Of Christ has been hailed as the most eloquent of Fulton Sheen's writings, the fruit of many years of dedication and research. Filled with compassion and brilliant scholarship, his recounting of the birth, life, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Christ is as dramatic and moving as the subject Himself. Here is a passionate portrait of the God-Man, the teacher, the healer, and most of all the Savior whose promise has sustained humanity for two millennia.

"It was not so much that His birth cast a shadow on His life, and led to His death," writes Sheen. "It was rather that the Cross was there from the beginning, and it cast its shadow backward to his birth." With his customary insight and reverence, the author interprets the scripture and describes Christ not only in historical perspective but in exciting and contemporary terms; he sees in Christ's life modern parallels and timeless lessons. Sheen probes the hearts of many prominent New Testament figures - Joseph and Mary, Peter and the disciples, Herod, Pilate, et al. - shedding new light on age-old events. The whole adds up to a masterful study: a faithful blending of philosophy, history, and biblical exegesis.

This book has been a revelation to countless readers, as well as a source of inspiration and guidance. Every Christian should read and own this vivid retelling of the greatest life ever lived.
