Treasure in Clay provides a lifetime's worth of wisdom from one of the most beloved and influential religious figures of the 20th century. Billy Graham called Bishop Sheen the "Great Communicator" since Sheen pioneered religious programming on both radio and TV with his signature program Life is Worth Living. In 1952 Sheen received an Emmy Award for Most Outstanding Television Personality.
This autobiography includes childhood and seminary reflections, as well as Sheen's views on media stardom, pastoral work, international travels, conversions, Vatican II, Mary, and more. Listeners can expect to hear many of this saintly and sage communicator's famous phrases and inspiring stories. Treasure in Clay illuminates why Bishop Sheen is now called "Servant of God", a step towards possible canonization in the Catholic Church.

Must-Read for Modern Communicators
- Walter "Conservative Catholic Curmudgeon"
What a Wonderful Autobiography!
Listening in Bishop Sheen's own words the story of his life was the most enjoyable part of the experience for me.
Bishop Sheen is, of course, my favorite character in the book. I've been a devotee of his talks and books for many many years, since my Dad introduced me to him 25 years ago. I pray that he makes sainthood.
I wasn't pulled out of the story by his performance.
I certainly wanted to, but was unable to.
The only way this could have been made better would be if Bishop Sheen were reading this book himself. He is unparalleled for his story telling ability. I would have loved to hear his voice change as he read. Additionally, would love to listen to more of his books as audiobooks.
