The perfect gift to enrich any Catholic’s bookshelf, The Fulton Sheen Signature Set brings to you five of Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s works, written at various points of his life on a myriad of topics. This set is hardcover.
These works have stood the test of time because they are still applicable to the most pertinent issues of our present age. To match the perennial wisdom enclosed, each volume is adorned with Archbishop Sheen’s signature and is beautifully designed with a classic cover featuring a photograph of the archbishop from the time period when he wrote the book.
The five works composing this set are:
- Way to Happiness
- Communism and the Conscience of the West
- Thinking Life Through
- Philosophies at War
- Preface to Religion
In the Way to Happiness, Fulton Sheen reflects on the most fundamental aspects of our lives. He treats the topics of love, politics, motherhood, work, teens, forgiveness, rest, and meditation, along with many other important themes that affect our everyday lives.
Communism and the Conscience of the West details the problems with society stemming from socialism and communism, which continue to infect universities and political discourse today.
Archbishop Sheen’s Thinking Life Through seeks to answer the critical question asked by so many today: “Has Christianity failed?” The conclusions offered are far-reaching and touch upon subjects as diverse as the truth and meaning of human sexuality, the purpose of life, parenting, discordant marriages, angels, alcoholism, the vocation of the soldier, materialism, and even the question of spanking children.
The American people are addressed by Philosophies at War on the themes of government and politics from the lens not only of a bishop but also of a conscientious citizen. Archbishop Sheen writes of war and revolution; the need of an absolute (God); the roots of democracy, patriotism, and peace; and that the culture war is not merely political and economic but also theological.
Finally, written amidst the backdrop of World War II, the great Fulton Sheen wrote Preface to Religion, his first book published after the war ended. As the world was recovering from death, destruction, and despair, Sheen’s timely work tackles the most salient questions pertaining to happiness and sanity.
Adding the Fulton Sheen Signature Set to your home library will give you a wealth of knowledge, beautiful books to display, and hours of fruitful reading for years to come!

I have been eye-balling this collection for a few months and am so glad I was able to grab it while on sale.
Sound Thinking or Prophecy
The depth of his understanding of history, philosophy and theology makes his clear distinctions among the totalitarian ideologies highly relevant to our current world situation. His remedy is also both relevant and absolutely necessary, the revival of the Catholic order. Since his writing is generally based on principles and sound reasoning, it will always apply, wouldn’t you agree? (This is based mainly on “Philosophies at War,” the first of the set I finished.)
Series by Ven. Bishop Fulton J. Sheen
Absolutely Fantastic.... How he is not a Saint by now is a mystery and Thank God for his for his Good work.
Ab. Fulton Sheen was a prophet!
The Archbishop was quite prophetic in his writings. Hard to believe that post World War II, he predicted our current times in "Communism and the Conscience of the West." The whole set of books is beautiful.
A Must Read !
These are a great resource that are of timeless value. The Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen touches on many issues of his day and ours. They are a great collection.
Great writings from a very holy and learned man.
I am greatly pleased to be able to own a set of writings from the venerable Bishop Fulton J Sheen. The man was a very brilliant and wise clergyman who guided many people to find a path to Jesus. We need more clergymen with his character, He wasnt afraid to speak his mind on various subjects no matter how controversial or unpopular they may be.
Abp Sheen¶ What can you say about a brilliant man who was a saint in my time. I remember watching his TV show, Life Is Worth Living, in the mid 50s. It was the #1 rated show on the tube for two years. Can you imagine??!! His topics are ageless and his views on our culture are spot on almost 50 years after his death. A suggestion! DVR his show on EWTN and watch at your leisure. This book set also is a great value.
Excellent! A great set of
