About the book:

Treasure in Clay provides a lifetimes worth of wisdom from one of the most beloved and influential religious figures of the twentieth century. Billy Graham called him the Great Communicator and he pioneered religious programming on both radio and TV, with his signature program, Life Is Worth Living. In 1946, Time magazine called him the golden-voiced Msgr. Fulton J. Sheen, U.S. Catholicisms famed proselytizer and reported that his radio broadcast drew between three and six thousand letters a week from listeners. In the 1950s, the TV program drew an average of 30 million viewers a week. In 1952, he received an Emmy Award for Most Outstanding Television Personality.

This autobiography (one of 73 published books by Bishop Sheen) includes many of this saintly and sage communicators famous phrases and inspiring stories. Here in Sheen's own words are reflections from his childhood, his years in seminary, his academic career, his media stardom, his pastoral work, his extensive travels, and much more. Listeners already familiar with Sheen--as well as those coming to him for the first time--will find a fascinating glimpse into the Catholic world Sheen inhabited, and will find inspiration in Sheen's heartfelt recollections.This life story illuminates why Bishop Sheen is now called Servant of God, a step towards possible canonization.
