8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By M. A. Ramos on 7 Oct. 2007
Format: Paperback
This book contains thirty-six talks from the first two seasons of the television series. They offer inspiration and guidance on problems with fear, suffering, prayer, work, friendship, and marriage. This volume has universal appeal to all people regardless of religious persuasion or walk of life. This book goal is to offer a tender of hope to people's ongoing struggles to achieve the fullness of life. His easy manner and natural style makes you want to continue reading. His talks on TV were much better because of his easy speaking manner. But what a wonderful way to read what you missed or remind you of his loving words.

Delightfully Understated 12 July 2001
By "citizen613" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen was perhaps the greatest orator of the twentieth century in the matters of morality and the like. His writings displayed a great inner creativity and understanding of the human mind. Archbishop Sheen never lowered himself to the heathen practices of finger-pointing, and profanity. Instead, he reinforced his beliefs with Biblical texts and comedic anecdotes of his own life. His ninety-one books and innumberable radio and televsion broadcasts allowed us a glance into his mind. The Pope John Pual II declared him "a devoted son of the Church." Very few reviews carry as much weight as that comment. I highly recommend this text to anyone of whom finds morality to be the highlight of life.

A Wonderful Book 8 April 2001
By D. Knight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Although this book is nothing more than the scripts from a number of the most popular "Life is Worth Living" shows, it is an excellent read.
Bishop Sheen has a way of saying the most profound things with an easy-going, conversational style in most of his books, but especially so in this one--probably because he was talking to the television audience.
I haven't seen most of the episodes that are in this book, but I still enjoyed reading the chapters of even the few episodes that I had seen. It gave me a chance to capture the nuggets of wisdom sprinkled throughout the episodes.

Life is Worth Living 23 Jun. 2008
By K. Benway - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The ultimate self-improvement book. Ideally suited for reading in short runs. In our too-complex, Paris Hilton world, this book provides solid moral grounding today, just as it did in the 50s and 60s. Read, heed, and then fire your psychologist.

Orated from memory? 23 Dec. 2009
By M. Hoover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Archbishop Sheen has recently been distinguished by Pope Benedict XVI for canonization to Sainthood. The marketing "zing" that the product proclaims - "every Catholic household should own a copy" - is very accurate. Fulton Sheen was born in 1895 and went to God Our Father in 1979. Substitute the cold war examples of his day with current day visual images of oppression/violence that we still suffer here in the 21st century and the presentations still awe you today as they most probably did on radio, and television when the program was in its peak.
"Awe, you say?" Yes AWE. At this fact and this fact alone. Bishop Sheen orated the 24 disks from memory?!?!?! without reference to any notes!! When you hear him say that (disk 1) and listen attentively to what is said per disk/per topic of faith, one can only be left in awe in what was clearly a man blessed with the gifts of Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding and Piety. The ways in which the articles of faith, and the teachings of the Church are presented are timeless and in total accord with the Will of God, the Tradition of the Church and the teachings of the Church Fathers.
The original media format change to compact disk is clear on 23 of 24 cd's. The final disk, the clarity is not as sound and crisp - most probably due to the fact that the talk seems to have been re-recorded from a different source - ie., from a live talk on a certain location as opposed to a studio. In any event....
To ANY Catholic_____ who desires to obtain a more full and deeper understanding of the Faith - to know what you believe and why you believe it________ (or protestant brother/sister in Christ who is near conversion or in the process thereof) I STRONGLY recommend this product. The value and wisdom one obtains... far surpasses the dollar amount of price.
