Product Description

This autobiography of the eloquent spokesman for Catholicism, completed shortly before his death, has enjoyed widespread sales and tremendous critical ovations in its hardcover edition. Now in paperback, many more readers will welcome the only first person account of Fulton J. Sheen: extraordinary priest, author of some sixty books, pastor of a radio and televison congregation numbering thirty million, and surely the most loved and celebrated Catholic prelate of this century. Here, in Sheen's own words, are reflections from his childhood, his years in seminary, his academic career, his extensive travels, his media stardom, and more. A wealth of anecdotes enriches this wide-ranging memoir -- stories from his experiences as orator and preacher, from his papal audiences, from Vatican Council II. The text is enhanced by a wonderful assortment of photographs that capture the flavor and spirit of Sheen's extraordinary life. There is also a complete chronology as well as a bibliography of the vast canon of Fulton J. Sheen's work.

Publisher's Description

Treasure in Clay provides a lifetime’s worth of wisdom from one of the most beloved and influential figures in twentieth-century Catholicism.

Completed shortly before his death in 1979, Treasure in Clay is the autobiography of Fulton J. Sheen, the preeminent teacher, preacher, and pastor of American Catholicism.

Called “the Great Communicator” by Billy Graham and “a prophet of the times” by Pope Pius XII, Sheen was the voice of American Catholicism for nearly fifty years. In addition to his prolific writings, Sheen dominated the airwaves, first in radio, and later television, with his signature program “Life is Worth Living,” drawing an average of 30 million viewers a week in the 1950s. Sheen had the ears of everyone from presidents to the common men, women, and children in the pews, and his uplifting message of faith, hope, and love shaped generations of Catholics.

Here in Sheen’s own words are reflections from his childhood, his years in seminary, his academic career, his media stardom, his pastoral work, his extensive travels, and much more. Readers already familiar with Sheen and as well as those coming to him for the first time will find a fascinating glimpse into the Catholic world Sheen inhabited, and will find inspiration in Sheen’s heartfelt recollections. Treasure in Clay is a classic book and a lasting testament to a life that was worth living.

Author Bio

Fulton 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, a participant in the Second Vatican council, and television’s first religious broadcaster. He is author of numerous books, including Life of Christ, and his cause for canonization is currently under consideration.

PRAISE FOR TREASURE IN CLAY
