Sheen brilliantly examines the vast differences between the benefits of psychotherapy and true confession that leads to conversion. While one may help the patient gain some peace of mind, the Christian gains something far greater through the grace of confession: peace of soul.
Bishop Sheen asks us to stop blaming our subconscious for our ills and examine instead our conscience; to turn away from the psychoanalyst and turn to God. He shows us that peace of soul cannot come from humankind, but must come through Divine help.
“Sheen has…analyze[d] the inner troubles of frustrated post-war man…to make religion up-to-date, attractive, and necessary to the unhappy, God-repelling souls of the present.” —Library Journal (Publisher’s description)Available at Christian Book
