Publisher's Summary

This three-book volume by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen includes Preface to Religion (1946), The Life of Christ (1958), and The Priest Is Not His Own (1963). These three works seek to educate both the new follower of Christ and the lifelong devotee on their place in the world and their responsibilities to God and their fellow human beings.

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (b. 1895 - d. 1979) was a Catholic priest, writer, and presenter of several radio and television programs throughout the mid-20th century. This highly educated man of faith held two bachelor's degrees, a master's degree, a PhD in philosophy, and a doctor of sacred theology. With such a thorough background in faith and philosophy, Archbishop Sheen was uniquely qualified to be an educator, both in universities and to the general public. To this end, he spent many years teaching at the Catholic University of America. He also shared what he'd learned with millions of Americans through his radio program, The Catholic Hour, and later through the popular television program, Life Is Worth Living.

He also wrote prolifically, sharing many books and articles with the world. Three of those books are included in this collection. Preface to Religion could be considered an introductory work, intended to guide those on the periphery of religion closer to God. The Life of Christ explores the life, temptations, passion, death, and resurrection of Christ-the founder of the Catholic Church. And The Priest Is Not His Own is a unique work for the priest or seminary student to help them be a better shepherd and closer adherent to the example set by Jesus Christ.

While Preface and Priest were written for different audiences, when taken together with The Life of Christ, they illustrate the depth of a life of faith. From the exploration of human nature and the causes of discontent to the responsibilities of the priest who has devoted his life to the Church, these three books help to illustrate the challenges of life as both
