THEOLOGY FOR BEGINNERS,
by F. J. Sheed (Sheed & Ward,
(Reviewed by Cecilia L. Hines)
A young man came seeking in a
local Catholic library for a book
about the faith to impress his
neighbor. He was throughly con
vinced that laymen come in con
tact with persons who are spirit
ually starved, but he had sud
denly become aware that he was
not familiar enough with the
great dogmas of the Church to
impart the knowledge of them to
others and make sense. Hastily
muttering a “Deo Gratias,” the
librarian gave him Sheed’s The
ology for Beginners — for his own
This book fills a gap between
Sheed’s Map of Life, an intro
duction to the faith as a whole,
and the same author’s Theology
and Sanity, which is much more
advanced. In twenty brief essays,
which originally appeared in
serial form in the diocesan press,
Catholic doctrine is explained in
an enlightening and interesting
manner, quite understandable to
the average man.
After tersely presenting his
main point, that “truth is food
and truth is light,” the author
takes up a number of key ideas:
Spirit, Mystery, God’s infinity
and man’s creation from nothing.
His explanations are clear and
patienntt, showing that every new
thing learned about God is a new
reason for loving Him. He also
dwells on the importance of
reading Scripture as an accom
paniment to all theological books,
because it has “a wonderful power
to make truth come alive in the
The book concludes with a
speech on “The Layman in the
Church,” originally given in
Rome at the Lay Congress, in
which Mr. Sheed says that the
non-Catholic who wants to know
God’s revealed truth will have to
get it from his intelligent Cath
olic neighbor, living next door or
working by his side, and this is
an added incentive for the Cath
olic to study theology.

ODDFISH and BY WHAT
AUTHORITY, by Robert Hugh
Benson (Kenedy, $3.50 each).
(Reviewed by Rev.
John Schroder, S. J.)
These two Benson novels, in
new editions, were recently added
to the two reprinted last spring
by Kenedy, Come Rack, Come
Rope and The Kink's Achieve
Oddsfish is an exciting novel
of espionage and counter-espio
nage, set in Restoration England.
Entwined in this cloak-and-dag
ger thriller is the continued con
flict between the Protestant
majority and the remaining hand
ful of Catholics. Roger Mallock,
young English gentleman, dab
bling with a vacation in Rome, is
sent instead by the Holy Father
on a secret mission to Charles the
Second. How the young hero
saves the Stuart playboy from
physical and spiritual disaster,
and himself falls in love, forms as
interesting a story as this review
er has ever had the pleasure to
By What Authority is another
historical novel, a romance set
in Elizabethan England. Appar
ently a tragedy, with the hero
suffering martyrdom and the
heroine banishment, it is actually
a story of grace and the salvation
of two souls. With all the excite
ment of thrilling drama, it de
scribes how the Old Faith died in
England, not by the. reformers’
teachings, but at the point of the
sword. “Give up your faith or
your fortune and life” was the
challenge faced by every English
Catholic. Today when Churchill
and other historians speak long
and loudly about the Inquisition,
little is said about the other side
of the picture. This is given by
Benson in a love story with fair-
to-middlin’ characterization and
an interesting plot.
GOD AND THE WAYS OF
KNOWING, by Jean Danielou,
S. J. (Meridian, $3.75).
(Reviewed by Elizabelh Hester)
To contain so much, this is an
extraordinarily brief book divided
into just six chapters. First Father
Danielou discusses the degree to
which true God is identifiable in
cosmic religious (pagan intuition).
Secondly he covers the question
of how God may be known by
rationalizing philosophy. Thirdly
he treats of God Who through
revelation must ultimately be
known by faith alone. The fourth
chapter, called the God of Jesus
Christ, and a logical successor to
the third, is a shewing forth of
revelation in a superb dissertation
on the Trinity. The fifth chapter,
the God of the Church, is primari
ly Roman Catholic apologetics in
a cream-smooth gentlemanly tum
bling of Protestant theology. The
final chapter deals with the God
of the Mystics; here the author
builds slowly, laying a steady
reasonable groundwork, climax
ing in a quiet deeply convincing
analysis of the ecstatic unions of
the great mystics.
Father Danielou is a prince of
writers; one knows he would he
this no matter what he chose to
write about. Happily his choice
is nobler, even, than his beautiful
locution. God and the Ways of
Knowing touches topics both
intricate and fundamental to the
understanding of theology, but
such is the lucidity of the author’s
presentation that it all seems a
great deal simpler than it would
in less phenomenally gifted hands.
He is the kind of writer who
makes a reviewer rue the day

DAILY MISSAL OF THE MYS
TICAL BODY (Maryknoll Missal),
edited and arranged by the Mary
knoll Fathers, published by P. J.
Kenedy & Sons in various bind
ings at prices varying accordingly.
This beautiful, newly published
missal has a vital underlying
theme — to instill in its users an
awareness of the Mystical Body,
the oneness of the faithful with
each other in Christ. Since the
Mass belongs to the people, it was
the intention of the editors and
publishers who co-authored this
new missal to give the Mass to
the people in their own vital lan
guage — simple, appealing, yet
sacrificing none of the majesty
and essence of the Mass itself.
In his encyclical letter, Mystici
Corporis Christi, Pope Pius XII
declared that it is through an
understanding of the doctrine of
the Mystical Body that the faith
ful are best able to grasp the Mass
as an act of worship in which they
participate in a highly personal
manner. With this end in view,
the Maryknoll Fathers have, in
this missal, put the prayers of the
Mass into the modern idiom, writ
ten introductions to each Mass*
and to various prayers, embody
ing the concept of the Mystical
Body, and have given a complete
explanation of the liturgical cycle.
During the four years the edi
tors were engaged in their task,
the Holy Father approved the re
vised Ordo and the restored litur
gy of Holy Week. These impor
tant changes have been incorpo
rated in the missal, as well as the
new regulations concerning the
The publishers also contributed
to the project by conducting a
long search for art work which
would complement the text, final
ly discovering some religious art
masterpieces of great beauty and
simple dignity executed by the
Benedictine monks of the Beuron
Abbey in Hohenzollern, Germany.
Twenty-five of these are repro
duced in the missal, by exclusive
license, as full page, five-color
illustrations. Other illustrations
were prepared especially for the
missal by William Cladek, Amer
ica’s foremost liturgical artist.
A condensed version of the
Papal encyclical, Mediator Dei, is
among a number of added fea
tures contained in this beautiful
volume. Archbishop Amleto Gio
vanni Cicognani contributed a
foreword, in which he says: “The
Daily Missal of the Mystical Body
. . . has as its general purpose this
intelligent participation and fol
lowing of the Holy Sacrifice of the
Mass. Its ultimate aim, however,
is to instill into its users a vivid
and enlightening sense of the
