  • For the first time, links the writings of a couple who worked to make the Catholic faith compelling and understandable in the modern world.

    Frank Sheed (d. 1981) and Maisie Ward (d. 1975) were a remarkable literary couple—founders of Sheed & Ward publishers, authors of innumerable books on Catholic history, theology, and spirituality, and pioneers in promoting the Catholic Revival of the mid-20th century. Frank Sheed was the best known Catholic apologist of the century while Maisie Ward won renown for her biographies and lives of the saints.

    An engaging and delightful read! This should begin to remedy the inexcusable neglect of two of the best Catholic thinkers of modern times.

     - Peter Kreeft, author, Before I Go: Letters to Our Children about What Really Matters

    The unlikely marriage of Frank Sheed and Maisie Ward catalyzed these two remarkable believers and created Sheed & Ward, a publishing house that advanced Catholic intellectual life. As writers, lecturers, and activists, Frank and Maisie combined a love of the Church with a generous, zealous, and courageous spirit. They believed that 'God mattered,' and that faith unlived was no faith at all. This collection of their spiritual writings will help cement their contribution.
