    My husband and I listened to this throughout our recent trip around the west It was an interesting combination sightseeing and listening to these old broadcasts Halfway through I remembered the book was downloaded to my kindle but when I tried to match up the text to the audio it didn t That was somewhat disappointing, because the Archbishop is so interesting it would have been nice to be able to find all of his quotes and reproduce them here for the review Mostly everything he said in the broadcasts is probably there in the book in some form or another just arranged differently However, you have to be creative in hunting and seeking It s worth it I included many of my favorite quotes below possibly too many On the negative side, the material is dated These shows predate Vatican II and there are references to concepts which the church has expanded and developed since the 1950s or dropped altogether And if you aren t used to the dramatic flair of those bygone days, which admittedly my husband and I weren t, it can be seem a bit overdone at times Although the overall recording quality was excellent considering they were made over 50 years ago, there were a few times we had trouble hearing what was said Still, we both agreed that we learned a lot, fo...

    This particular book is available in numerous editions from several publishers A few with shorter titles of The Life of all Living and Life Is Worth Living in researching this review I came across 24 different editions, and three different subtitles also The subtitle of this edition is, 50 Lessons to Deepen Your Faith , some of the others are The Christian Philosophy of Life and First and Second Series For this book is compiled from a series of audio recordings that ran over 21 hours on 25 vinyl records The book was composed to take those lessons and make them available in a different medium, as it had been available only on vinyl and cassette for over 20 years The sections in this book are Foreword By Robert BarronPreface To The 2001 EditionPart I God And Man1 The Philosophy Of Life2 Conscience3 Good And Evil4 The Divine Invasion5 Line Up The Claimants6 Revealed Truth7 Miracles8 New Testament RevelationPart II Christ And His Church9 Divinity Of Christ10 Humanity Of Christ11 The Blessed Trinity12 The Mother Of Jesus13 Christ In The Creed Birth14 Sufferings, Death, And Resurrection15 Ascension16 Holy Spirit17 Church ...

    Amazing book Not only does it talk about faith, it discusses culture and the ills of communism It s incredible how this book from 1954 has so many parallels to the modern day I highly encourage you to read this book

    This book has much emphasis on religion then does his series of television episodes Some of the things I found interesting He says science is not atheistic Basically science cannot be compared to religion any than apples to oranges God and religion are outside the scope of science One of the main differences between men and women is that men are concerned mainly with things and women are mainly concerned with persons Love for men is tied up with their intellect but with women love is its own reason Men may stand for the justice of God and women for the mercy of God.He has an interesting section on teenagers Babies cannot stand the interval between wanting and getting yet people grow up and can learn to wait He has a lot to say about tolerance As to education he says that every adult regrets that he did not study harder when in school That is one statement I disagree with I think some do but it seems the majority don t Look at how few people read books other than something...

    This book, a transcription of Ven Fulton Sheen s episodes, is divided into a number of small, disconnected, and very readable chapters They do not take long to finish, and include a good dose of humour Ven Sheen s TV show was a huge hit in its day, and I can see ...
