First published in 1935, The Mystical Body of Christ is a groundbreaking contribution to ecclesiology--the study of the Church--from one of the most beloved evangelists of the modern world.

In a culture where an increasing number of people identify as "spiritual but not religious," The Mystical Body remains as timely as ever. With the typical wit and insight that made him a household name, Fulton J. Sheen draws believers into a deeper understanding of their own role in the great communion of saints.

Addressing topics such as the Eucharist, the Incarnation, social justice, and priestly scandals, Sheen artfully guides readers through the Scriptures and the rich Catholic theological tradition to demonstrate the inseparability of Christ and his Church. The Church is not a roadblock to encountering Christ, Sheen argues, but rather the living Body of Christ himself.
