"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
From the Inside Flap
In Knowing God (previously titled God and the Human Mind) the great Catholic writer, teacher, and publisher Frank Sheed helps readers to know that God exists, to think about who and what God is, and to know God personally. He clears away popular misunderstandings of God, often held by otherwise knowledgeable people. A masterful, lucid writer, Sheed is not timid about tackling the most challenging questions the human mind can pose about God, yet he does not reduce divine mystery to dry propositions or neglect the necessity of faith.
Sheed acknowledges the limits of human words and human minds when it comes to God. At the same time, he carefully explains the meaning of Spirit, the role of theology and revelation, including the place of the Bible in the Church, and the experience of God in mysticism. In the final section, Sheed goes into the heart of the mystery of God, exploring God as the Trinity and the difference the Trinity should make in understanding God and ourselves.

This was one of the clearest explanations of fundamental Catholic theology that I have ever read. Doctrines are explained clearly and beautifully.Published 19 months ago by Steven Obiajulu
