Upcoming Talk: The Life and Work of Frank Sheed

Tragically, many today do not know who Frank Sheed was.

Frank Sheed was a vigorous combination of elements. An Australian-born layman who jetted between London and New York, one who trained in law but became a jovial and engaging public theologian.

With his wife Maisie Ward, Frank established the remarkably successful house of Sheed and Ward. Sheed was above all a remarkable communicator. His articles and books brought theological mysteries such as the Blessed Trinity "out of the muddle" in which many homilies languish and into the light. His book Theology and Sanity is rarely out of print.

Our speaker, John Young, who writes and teaches philosophy, knew Frank Sheed and his work with the Catholic Evidence Guild.

Time: 1-2pm, Wednesday 11 March 2015
