I Want to Read It (53):



I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the one's I want to buy to the one's sitting on my TBR at home.




Theology and Sanity by Frank Sheed, September 1, 1993 (originally published 1946). Published by Ignatius Press. Source: Wishlist.
Vatican II issued an urgent call for the laity to take a more active role in the life of the Church. What should the life of the Christian believer be like? How are average lay Christians called to help save the world? How does theology fit into the picture?
One of Frank Sheed's most popular books, this ideal volume for the layman shows the practical aspects of theology in the life of a Christian believer. Logic, clarity, and simplicity permeate this eminently readable book. Drawing from his fifty years of street-corner preaching, as well as his long career as an author, lecturer and publisher, Sheed understands and communicates better than anyone the importance of theology and its relationship to living sanely in today's world. A brilliant synthesis of the Catholic view of life.

Why

I've been eye-balling this book from my mom's collection for months now! I keep contemplating reading it but have yet to find the time to fit it in. Right now, I'm really enjoying one of Frank Sheed's other books, A Map of Life, and am looking forward to delving further into his writing. Theology and Sanity sounds like a fascinating book; I'm really interested to see how he synthesizes theology and living in today's world (even though this was written way back in 1946)...
