Society and sanity by F. J Sheed( Book )
28 editions published between 1953 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 616 libraries worldwide
As the title suggests, this book is a companion to the author's "Theology and sanity", the distinction being that whereas the earlier book was upon man's relation to God, the present one is upon man's relation to man. The first part discusses man as the Christian knows him to be, what he is, what the purpose of his existence is, and what principles should guide beings of that sort or that goal in their dealings with one another. The second part applies these principles to marriage and the family, the third part to society and the state

What difference does Jesus make? by F. J Sheed( Book )
13 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 435 libraries worldwide
The author has studied the Jesus of the Gospels to see what light he can bring to our present religious, moral, social and political confusions. His concern is with the Christ who has changed men's lives for nineteen centuries, not the Christ of the statues and the hymns, not the Christ of the theologians, not the Christ that's left when the Scripture scholars have put away their knives, but the Christ of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the carpenter of Nazareth, "the fruit of David's loins". Once he is known, vast light can be got from the scholars; the reader who does not know the Gospel Jesus is at their mercy
