Archbishop Fulton J Sheen was one of the leading religious figures of the 20th century and the chief spokesman of American Catholicism. This work reflects his 16 years of service as national director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith and 26 years on radio and television. The only work where he describes his Christian philosophy, this work was begun in 1965 in the privacy of his New York City residence at the conclusion of the Second Vatican Council. It is his response to millions of letters he received from people around the world writing him in search of truth, salvation, and spiritual guidance and was also conceived to explain his mission to evangelise the world. This book provides Sheen's answers to life's most profound questions and presents the Christian philosophy of life.
