Widely proclaimed a classic work of Christian faith, Life of Christ has been hailed as the most eloquent of Fulton J. Sheen's many books. The fruit of many years of reflection, prayer, and research, it is a dramatic and moving recounting of the birth, life, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Christ, and a passionate portrait of the God-Man, the teacher, the healer, and, most of all, the Savior, whose promise has sustained humanity for two millenia.
With his customary insight and reverence, Sheen interprets the Scripture and describes Christ not only in historical perspective but also in exciting and contemporary terms -- seeing in Christ's life both modern parallels and timeless lessons. His thoughtful, probing analysis provides new insight into well-known Gospel events.
An appealing blend of philosophy, history, and biblical exegesis, from the best-known and most-loved American Catholic leader of the twentieth century, Life of Christ has long been a source of inspiration and guidance. For those seeking to better understand the message of Jesus Christ, this vivid retelling of the greatest story ever lived is a must-read.
FULTON J. SHEEN (1895 – 1979) was one of the most prominent Catholic leaders in American history. He was bishop of Rochester, national director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, and television’s first religious broadcaster, hosting “Life is Worth Living” on the ABC network. Sheen’s cause for canonization is currently under consideration.

Each short chapter is like a sermonette, providing much to think and pray about. The Bishop's style is that of a gentle teacher, and his "Life of Christ" not only touches the heart but provides details about history, linguistics, religious practice, etc., to help us understand. (The only thing I didn't like - the cover picture is not that which is shown on the website. Instead there is a painting of the Baptism of the Lord - and the figure of Jesus is so small that the cover doesn't have the impact of the one shown above.)
