The Eternal Galilean

By Fulton Sheen
“Being found in human form he humbled himself,” states St. Paul on the mystery of the Incarnation. This divine humility is the inspiration for Fulton J. Sheen’s telling of the story of Christ’s life in The Eternal Galilean, not as a mere exercise in biography or history, but as an essay in meaning. To address what it means that “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,” Sheen plumbs the uniquely profound import of Christ’s preaching and miracles, his passion, death, and resurrection, and his threefold character of priest, prophet, and king. The result is not just an instructive account of the life of Jesus Christ, but also a potent antidote to the malignancies of the modern age.
Written in the vital spirit of childlike humility, The Eternal Galilean is a passionate, at times poetic, meditation on the mystery of the Son of God, who came “to seek and to save that which was lost.”
