Peace of Soul Author:Fulton J. Sheen Bishop Fulton J. Sheen of the leading exponents of Catholic doctrine in America today, offers in his powerful new book a way for man to bring peace to his soul in these turbulent times. He asks us to stop blaming our subconscious for all our ills and to examine instead our conscience; to turn away from the psychoanalyst and turn to God, who will... more » forgive us for our sins if we have the honesty to recognize them. He shows us that peace of soul cannot come from man himself but must come through Divine help.
To those who are beset by mental conflict and bodily frustrations, Bishop Sheen points the way to salvation through transferring their anxieties to the realm of the soul, their desires to the immortal life. He defines Freudianism as a revolution against the restraining influences of society. He tears the masks from what he considers to be the false gods of rationalized self-indulgence and misguided social reform, and explains spiritual discipline and Divine authority as a means to greater freedom for the soul.
PEACE OF SOUL is a book that will fill a great human need. The troubled soul of today must find a way out of its dilemma, since there can be no peace among nations while the human spirit wars with itself. Out of the wealth of his great understanding, Bishop Sheen has prepared a significant message of inspiration. A fitting sequel to his PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION, PEACE OF SOUL is a book that every one of Bishop Sheen's tremendous following will want to own.« less
