Widely 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.… (more)

Definitely written during the rise of Freudian psychoanalysis, and all of Sheen's contempt for the same. Other than the distaste for the practice of clinical psychology that's really, I suspect, intended as a critique of Freud specifically, this was a truly excellent work of theology and exegesis. ( )

A very incisive, inspirational and equally scholarly work by Bishop Fulton Sheen on the life of Jesus as it is presented in the Gospels and through socio-historical studies made on gospel tradition. ( )
