Lethargic IITian
Musings of a 20-something lethargic IITian on India and Catholicism.

Monday, December 02, 2002  

I've just started reading Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen's The Life of Christ (I borrowed the copy from my parish priest). The theme of the book is so simple yet dramatic (in some sense) - and I'm beginning to suspect that this feeling won't be much of a stranger to me once I read more of Archbishop Sheen's works.

So, what's the theme of the book?

Think of the life of Christ backwards. Christ came to mankind to die, not to teach. Everything He did, everything He taught, every incident of his life has the shadow of the Cross and Calvary on it.
