To Know Christ Jesus
Publisher: Angelico Press
Publication Date: January 15, 2013
Here we meet Christ in his obedience, his compassion, his tears, his joy, his relation to Mary and the disciples, and in his unequalled and unsparing words that mined the depths of reality, and of real lives. We come to know Christ as he touched the lives of each person among the multitudes that followed him, and we realize that he is with us likewise--in each moment of our own lives.
Francis Joseph "Frank" Sheed (March 20, 1897 in Sydney - November 20, 1982 in Jersey City), an Australian-born lawyer, was a Catholic writer, publisher, and speaker. He and his wife Maisie Ward were famous in their day as the names behind the imprint Sheed & Ward and as forceful public lecturers in the Catholic Evidence Guild, though their fame dimmed somewhat in subsequent decades.
