God’s World and Our Place in It

About this item

God and the world explained - by Bishop Sheen, the T.V. personality who captivated the nation and won countless converts.

In the 1950s, Fulton J. Sheen was one of the most popular television personalities in America, captivating millions of prime-time viewers weekly with enlightening talks on the essentials of Christianity and the moral life.

Relying on the same wise, lucid explanations that won the hearts of so many viewers, Archbishop Sheen here demonstrates that Christianity makes good sense - even to persons with no religious background.

Indeed, argues Sheen, Christianity alone is able to explain the goodness we encounter in the universe and the evil; it alone makes sense of our impulses to love and to sacrifice and our repeated failures to do so.

Along the way, Bishop Sheen shows you:

  • How conscience proves the existence of God
  • Why sacrifice is the road to lasting happiness
  • Why there must be both a heaven and a hell, and
  • What you must do to find your proper place in God's world.

If you're not a Christian, you'll come away with a sure sense of why so many good people are. If you're already Christian, you'll come to understand your faith better, learn to explain it to others, and grow in gratitude for God's gift of this world and the glorious role He has called you to play in it.

It's good to rediscover Fulton!
I remember watching Fulton Sheen on TV when I was young and being impressed with his presence and simplicity. When I read "God's World," I realized he also had wisdom and the ability to pull great truths together, and present them in such a way that all hearts could assimilate the goodness of the ages. It's helpful to rediscover the writings of this talented, saintly man.

Fulton Sheen at his BEST!
The center section on Marriage and Family is worth the price of the book. Written decades ago, yet still spot on for today. If you read only one book by Bishop Fulton Sheen this year, make it this one!
