"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

"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."--Dana Greene, author, The Living of Maisie Ward

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.

David Meconi, a Jesuit priest, teaches theology at St. Louis University. He is the editor of Catherine de Hueck Doherty in the Modern Spiritual Masters Series.

"The residue of what is positive, good, and true is happily restored and preserved by Father Meconi's collection. . . Both Sheed and Ward were cognizant of the transient nature of epochs and their own fleeting impact on them. They saw change less as something to be feared and more as an opportunity to exercise the mind God supplies."
