Life of Christ

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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 millennia.

With his customary insight and reverance, 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.

Life Of Christ

In my opinion, of the sixty-six books written by Sheen, LIFE OF CHRIST is the Venerable Archbishop’s finest. It was required reading for every one of the courses on Catholicism that I gave in New York City (1995-2005).

This is a great and moving book. The book inspired and educated me and I recommend this book to every one


I decided to read this during Lent, as part of my preparation for Easter. It was a providential decision. Bishop Sheen's profound ability to clearly and accurately express the boundless depths of Christ's life, and the meaning of His cross, is superb.

Reading this book, one realizes that it is much more than an academic work; it is a book of meditation and a companion on our journeys toward knowing Christ intimately in love.

Don't hesitate to read this scholarly work because Bishop Sheen is able to present Christ in a way that can easily be understood by all readers. It is a book for Priests, scholars, and lay people. It penetrates, like a spear, directly into the heart.
