More About Fulton J. Sheen & Patricia A. Kossmann
Fulton John Sheen (born Peter John Sheen, May 8, 1895 – December 9, 1979) was an American archbishop of the Roman Catholic Church known for his preaching and especially his work on television and radio. His cause for canonization for sainthood was officially opened in 2002. In June 2012, Pope Benedict XVI officially recognized a decree from the Congregation for the Causes of Saints stating that he lived a life of "heroic virtues" – a major step towards beatification – so he is now referred to as "Venerable".
Ordained a priest of the Diocese of Peoria in 1919, Sheen quickly became a renowned theologian, earning the Cardinal Mercier Prize for International Philosophy in 1923. He went on to teach theology and philosophy as well as acting as a parish priest before being appointed Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of New York in 1951. He held this position until 1966 when he was made the Bishop of Rochester from October 21, 1966 to October 6, 1969, when he resigned and was made the Archbishop of the Titular See of Newport, Wales.
For 20 years he hosted the night-time radio program The Catholic Hour (1930–1950) before moving to television and presenting Life Is Worth Living (1951–1957). Sheen's final presenting role was on the syndicated The Fulton Sheen Program (1961–1968) with a format very similar to that of the earlier Life is Worth Living show. For this work, Sheen twice won an Emmy Award for Most Outstanding Television Personality, the only personality appearing on the DuMont Network ever to win a major Emmy award.[clarification needed] Starting in 2009, his shows were being re-broadcast on the EWTN and the Trinity Broadcasting Network's Church Channel cable networks. Due to his contribution to televised preaching Sheen is often referred to as one of the first televangelists.
Fulton J. Sheen was born in 1895 and died in 1979.

Not the Work of Sheen May 17, 2003
This book claims to be a compilation of essays written by the late Archbishop Fulton Sheen. It is not. Bishop Sheen was, without argument, one of the greatest homilists and apologist (i.e. defender) of the Catholic faith in the 20th century. He wrote several spectacular books that showed the defects in the arguments of the secular-humanists and modernists.
The book "In The Fullness of Time" contains one or more essays that were NOT written by Archbishop Sheen. In particular, one essay (Chapter 16 - "Personality: Earth and Heaven") is an endorsement of the Jesuit freak Pierre Teilhard De Chardin. This essay was NOT written by Sheen, yet it is presented as if Sheen endorsed the erroneous arguments of De Chardin.
Teilhard De Chardin was a Jesuit priest with a doctorate in Anthropology. In something that borders on the insane, he tried to re-invent Christianity in to some bizarre mix of anthropology, evolution, cosmology, and theology. He argued that humanity was evolving and progressing to some pan-theistic state of perfection ... a new-aged paganism ... and that Christianity was a part of this process.
The Catholic Church, in 1948, refused to publish De Chardin's book "Phenomenon of Man" because of the errors it contained. This was repeated in 1949 when the Church refused to publish his other book "The Human Zoological Group". De Chardin used other mechanisms to have his books published, so in 1962 Pope John XXIII issused a "moristum" (i.e. warning) against the teachings and works of De Chardin because they contained serious errors.
If you are in search of authentic writings by the late Archbishop Sheen, then you will NOT find it in this book. Rather, go to your local library and see if there are any books written by Sheen in the collection. If the copyright is earlier than 1979 (the year he died) then you can consider the book authentic.
The book "In the Fullness of Time" is best described as deceptive.
