“A beautifully written life of Christ and one that might almost be called a modern version, comes from the prolific pen of Fulton J. Sheen. It is entirely different in its treatment and yet the author knows well how to present his subject in a language easily understandable to the world of today. Here is a volume that may well serve as an inspiration to many readers who find Sheen’s works especially penetrating and enlightening.” Boston Post

“In this book Bishop Sheen tells the story of the Son of God. But he does more than relate history; he portrays some of the characteristics of the Eternal Galilean—that Divine Person made Man in Nazareth. The doings and the teachings of Our Lord are told in language nicely adapted to the nuances of the author’s thought. An occasional play on words, a well-turned sentence, an excellent choice of words throughout, combine to make this learned work a pleasant, and almost poetic, piece of soteriological literature.” Catholic Historical Review

About the Author: Bishop Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979) was one of the most famous and best-loved religious leaders of modern times. As head of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, he did much to promote the foreign missions of the Church; as a radio and television personality, he had a faithful following of millions; as an author, he wrote over 30 best sellers. A man of deep intellect and profound spirituality, he was blessed with the happy facility of being able to present the sublime mysteries of the Christian Gospel in a language that the modern age understands. The Eternal Galilean — a fresh and vigorous retelling of the life of Christ — is one of the most inspiring of his works, which have won a cherished place in the hearts and minds of people of all faiths.
