    Book details

2016 Reprint of 1962 Edition.  Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software.  Sheed's concern with the Gospels is to come to know Christ as he actually lived among us and as he interacted with all the various people he encountered from his infancy to his passion and death.  Sheed attempted to show Jesus through his effect upon others--seeing how they saw him, trying to see why they saw him so. There is much about Mary and Joseph in their task of bringing up a Jesus; about John the Baptist; about Mary of Bethany and Mary Magdalen; about Nicodemus; about people we meet only for a moment, like the man born blind and the owners of the drowned swine; and why the Pharisees, not only the worst of them but some of the best, would not accept Christ.  Faith, doctrine, prayer, worship--all the content and consequences of Christian belief--rest on the person of Christ Jesus as recorded in the Gospels. In this classic study, Frank J. Sheed employs wide learning, theological sophistication, spiritual insight, and a lucid style to bring the reader to a personal encounter with the living Lord.  Sheed had a distinguished career as a publisher, lecturer, street-corner evangelist, and popular writer. He and his wife Maisie Ward were the founders of the publishing house Sheed & Ward.

Review Text

  • By Peter Eglington on 31 August 2015

    It is essential for any Christian to know more about the life, death and resurrection. The author of 'To Know Christ Jesus' describes and explains the foreground and background with especial regard for context and faith. Each and every man must decide whether they do things their way and follow their own path or whether they follow 'the way, and the truth, and the life', of Jesus Christ. What is at stake is not just beauty, depth and quality of real lives but the eternal destiny of every soul. Many of us grope our way forward in darkness until discovering a beam of light that affords a foothold onto and into faith, grace and eternal salvation in and through Our Lord Jesus Christ. By reading this book one can begin such a journey with greater confidence.
