This compendium, published on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Sheen's death, is more than anything, a celebration of life: our life in Christ and our destiny in faith. The words of Fulton J. Sheen ring as clear and true for the next century as they did for the twentieth.A fierce defender of the Christian faith, a gifted communicator who touched the minds and souls of millions, a man of deep prayer, and, above all, a wise and knowledgeable teacher, Sheen wrote and spoke prolifically of the oneness of all in the Body of Christ. He addressed our interconnectedness both with others and with God; the challenges that accompany us in our walk in faith; the hurts and questions that plague our spiritual life; the continuum from birth to death to new life; our realization that we do not suffer alone; our love, forgiveness, and patience; our steadfastness, devotion, and sacrifice; and the sharing of our faith to spread our gifts among the global human family.These are the themes of this book, drawn largely from Sheen's radio talks, retreat conferences, and other sources. And, in his inimitable style, he elucidates their common denominator in both our individual life as well as our communal life. The center, or core, is the saving Christ. If there is one overarching theme to Sheen's preaching and teaching, it is that Christ is our foundation, our center, our one and only link to a life of fullness -- indeed, a life without end. In The Fullness of Time renews our understanding and appreciation of the Christian life and the promise of faith.
