Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is vintage Sheed: clear, commonsensical, and convincing. This is the Sheed of the two masterpieces of apologetics Theology and Sanity and Society and Sanity. But this is also a new Sheed: older and wiser, more practical and human--the post-Vatican II Sheed. I mean this in all the good senses, the John Paul II senses: he is sensitive to the dangers of "the good old days": verbalism, "dead orthodoxy," rationalism, deism, what Sheed calls "theometry" instead of theology: an abstract, formal theological geometry that only wants to define terms and win debating points. Instead, this book is a kind of theological midrash, a deepening, a spelunking in the caves of the deepest mysteries with the clear light of honest words--honest with heart as well as head. It unites dogmatic theology with lived religion. It is precisely the breath of fresh air that Pope John XXIII opened the windows for, and in terms the layman can clearly grasp. --- Peter Kreeft, Author, Because God is Real

"No human activity is more important than knowing God, and few human beings have explained how to go about it better than Frank Sheed did in Knowing God. If you really want to love God, you must know Him. And if you really want to know Him, you must read this book." ---Patrick Madrid, Author, Envoy for Christ: 25 Years as a Catholic Apologist

Fr James Schall said somewhere that Frank Sheed has not written an unclear sentence in his life. Like everything Frank Sheed has written, I suspect you will find yourselves reading this again and again for his characteristic depth of insight and the clarity with which he expresses it.

I have "known" Sheed's work since college, over 60 years ago. The revival of his work is a boon to Christian thought, experience and hope. Look for all his works!

This was one of the clearest explanations of fundamental Catholic theology that I have ever read. Doctrines are explained clearly and beautifully.
