Mr. Sheed is one of those rare men who has an immense knowledge, yet can explain it in a way that makes it not only a pleasure to read but understandable as well. He brings to light the three most important concepts in life and theology: spirit, infinite and eternal. When reading Mr. Sheeds explanations of these concepts your view of life will likely be irrevocably changed.
If you want to know God, if you think you already know God, if you want to love God, if you already profess to love God, PLEASE read this book. Whatever God-laden yeast you bring to this book it will rise 100 fold into a baker's loaf!
Even if you doubt God exists, or think His existence can't be arrived at logically or by reason, read this book because you have a surprise waiting for you.
Forgive my exhuberance but I LOVE THIS BOOK - you will to. :)
P.S. Also read another book of Mr. Sheed's entitled "Theology and Sanity".
I am now reading Sheed's "Theology and Sanity", which is a deeper study of the subjects found in "Theology for Beginners".
"Theology for Beginners" is a MUST READ for anyone who wants to know God better.
It starts out with the basics such as why one should even desire to study theology and how to understand what exactly is meant by "spirit". It also includes The Trinity, Creation, The Fall, Redemption, Moral Virtues, The Sacraments, The Eucharist, The Mass, and others. Sheed concludes with Death and the End of the World. He goes through each topic thoroughly, building logical explanations that take you on a the journey of the Church teachings. The sections are broken up in small parts that can easily be referred back to and be read in short sessions. Sheed repeatedly encourages the reader of the importance that all theological books should be accompanied by the reading of Scripture.
This book has helped me learn about Church teaching but more importantly- it has helped me to come to understand Church teaching.
This Angelico Press reprint is beautiful. I like the layout: the size and style of the font, the page breaks, and the size of the book.
Lastly, it has a beautiful cover image that my children and I really appreciate!
I have enjoyed the conversations that have emerged from my children's questions and comments of the cover artwork.
This is a great addition to my library.
