A True Guide to Spiritual Peace Jun 21, 2007
This book is easy to read and is applicable to everyone's life. Bishop Sheen analyzes the inner life of modern man and emphasizes spiritual growth as the key to happiness and peace. As relevant today as the day it was written.

Guaranteed to direct your spiritual focus. Jun 30, 1999
This book is easy to read and understand. For years I have gone to spiritual direction and this book has hit the nail on the head as far as getting you focused on the divine and not your own ego-wants. It's a step by step look at that process of spiritual growth that is so wanting and yet so difficult sometimes. Great book!! I've recommended it to everyone and want to carry it in my Catholic bookstore. Get it and grow spiritually!
Sheen's book leads to new affection for an examined life. Jul 27, 1998
I came to this book prepared to be unmoved by it's overly doctrinal approach to modernity and it's trappings - psychological and otherwise. I was surprised, however, when I found myself examining my life in new and profound ways. I say profound because Fulton's reflections go to the very heart of how we live. I find myself choosing my words more carefully, living more reflectively. And what more can I expect of a book...especially one picked up with such (initial) distaste?
