Fulton Sheen’s “Life of Christ” Book Giveaway!


“Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others.” – St. Augustine

Since I’ve built up a large collection of extra books and resources, every week I give some away absolutely free, no strings attached. Each giveaway lasts seven days with a new one beginning every Friday. You can enter any time during the week. Check out my past giveaways here.

With Lent just underway, Image Books has given me TEN giveaway copies of one of my favorite Lenten books, Life of Christ by Fulton Sheen.

Life of Christ

by Fulton Sheen
Image Books, 476 pages, paperback

Life-3DsingleWidely proclaimed a classic work of Christian faith, Life of Christ has been hailed as the most eloquent of Fulton J. Sheen’s many books. The fruit of many years of reflection, prayer, and research, it is a dramatic and moving recounting of the birth, life, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Christ, and a passionate portrait of the God-Man, the teacher, the healer, and, most of all, the Savior, whose promise has sustained humanity for two millenia.

With his customary insight and reverence, Sheen interprets the Scripture and describes Christ not only in historical perspective but also in exciting and contemporary terms—seeing in Christ’s life both modern parallels and timeless lessons. His thoughtful, probing analysis provides new insight into well-known Gospel events.

An appealing blend of philosophy, history, and biblical exegesis, from the best-known and most-loved American Catholic leader of the twentieth century, Life of Christ has long been a source of inspiration and guidance. For those seeking to better understand the message of Jesus Christ, this vivid retelling of the greatest story ever lived is a must-read.

    “For those seeking to better understand the message of Jesus Christ” – that describes me. As James Spiegel has written, “human beings are also ‘cognitively fallen’ due to sin,” and so I need all the help I can get to better understand the message and the Messenger. This book seems like it would help in those efforts! 🙂
