5.0 out of 5 stars An Outstanding engagement with modern thought
Bishop Sheen has done an outstanding job of bringing Christian revelation to bear on modern problems and modern understandings of the psyche and the soul. Sheen shows that Christian revelation about the soul is the only true answer to man's neurosis. The book is wholly, and entirely, Orthodox and represents the best of modern Catholic thinking.

Not recommended. Why bother with this tosh when you can read the doctors of the Church, the saints, the Holy See, and other goodies?

5.0 out of 5 stars An Outstanding engagement with modern thought, 28 Jun. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Peace of Soul (Paperback)
Bishop Sheen has done an outstanding job of bringing Christian revelation to bear on modern problems and modern understandings of the psyche and the soul. Sheen shows that Christian revelation about the soul is the only true answer to man's neurosis. The book is wholly, and entirely, Orthodox and represents the best of modern Catholic thinking. THe Catholic tradition of thinking has always been involved in an engagement of Christian revelation with contemporary intellectual thinking. Not only was a harmonization of the best of secular thinking and Divine Revelation achieved by St. Thomas Aquinas in the 1200's, but it was also the achievement of the Fathers of the Church as well. Sheen stands in this tradition, addressing pastoral and moral concerns of contemporary man. Sheen will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the finest pastoral theologians of this century.

although a bit dated here and there, it is a very clear discussion on psychiatry and the make-up of the mind.
