back to somebody like George

that's got nothing to do with you?”
"How do you figure'* asked Joe.

_______________________________ ___
An enthusiastic and attentive
audience warmly received Frank
J. Sheed's review of the book “This
I Believe” last week in the Little
Theater of the Columbus Gallery
of Fine Arts. It was the first of
the 1953 Critics Forum Series spon
sored by the International Federa
tion of Catholic Alumnae.
Mr. Sheed's sharp arwlysis of the
book a series ol personal be
liefs written by “prominent” lay
men and his easy-to-take wit.
got the series off to a wonderful
start.
The noted writer and publisher
made it dear at the outset that
the word "belief” as used by the
contributors to the book, has an
entirely different meaning than
that given to the word by Catho
lics According to Mr. Sheed.
whereas we are certain our be
liefs on moral matters as taught
by the'church are facts, the writ
ers concerned could just as well
have used the words, “I have a
hunch that thus and so is true
or they feel certain that thus
and so is true.”
Mr. Sheed pointed out too that
the great majority of the writers
had no reason lor these so-called
“beliefs”, but rather applied a lot
of wishful thinking to the state
ment of their creeds.

Sheed stressed the authors’ lack
of a realistic approach. He was
quick to assure his audience that
he believed in many of the things
contained in the book. However,
as Mr. Sheed asked. “Who doesn't
believe in most of these proverbs?
Halt of the writers mention
God, he continued, but only 33
believe in a personal God. But
this personal God to them is only
a support, a staff "not a Judge
imposing His will and demanding
that we live up to His Command
ments. as we believe.”
Christ is mentioned by ten of
the writers, he said, but eight of
them mention Him only in passing,
without conviction or belief. Only
two mention Christ as the Redeem
er and only one of these "makes
anything of it.”
This from 100 “outstanding lay
men.”
Only four or five mention life
after death he asserted.
Mr. Sheed chose the book, cer
tainly not because of its value, hut
rather because of the “fuss being
mrde over it.” It's heard by 39.
000.000 people on the radio twice
a day, read in newspapers and
281.000 copies of the book have
been sold. The State Department
has offered it to 90 countries for
radio use.

The popularity of the book indi
cates to Mr. Sheed that the people
are hungry for something to be
lieve in. "But”, he said, “there is
nothing in this book but milk.
There is nothing solid. It is too
horribly unrealistic and contains
no meat. You'll never find the
answer to the ills of the world
here.”
Perhaps the unrealistic approach
can be blamed on the fact that
those who contributed to the book
are persons who have been success
ful and are well adjusted to their
station in life. Mr. Sheed added,
as only he can. “Perhaps they feel
its their duty to help those less
fortunate.”
According to Mr. Sheed, the most
obvious omission in the collection
of creeds is any mention of the
word “love”. And why isn’t love
mentioned? Mr. Sheed answered
his own question “Because God
isn’t mentioned.”
He summed up his feelings
about the book by reciting a little
poem written by Adams Lindsay
Gordon
“Life is mostly froth and bubble,
“Two things stand like stone,
“Kindness in another's troubles,
“Courage In your own.”
Then, he added dryly, “Mr. Gor
don died a suicide.”

Foilowing the review, an open
forum was conducted by the chair
man, Edmund Doyle. One of his
questioners asked Mr. Sheed for an
antidote to “This I Believe.” The
speaker assured his questioner that
the book wasn't poison but he did
recommend several books by Cath
olic writers that would point to
ward a solution of some of the
world's problems.
His suggestions included any of
the works of Cardinal Newman,
“The Confessions of St. Augustine”
and Chesterton's “The Everlasting
Man.”
During the entire talk and for
um, Mr. Sheed demonstrated his
remarkable ability to put his aud
ience at ease. It was apparent
from the moment he stepped to the
rostrum. Doubtless this faculty has
been developed through his many
years of “street corner” talks. A
member of the Westminster Catho
lic Evidence Guild, he has been
teaching Catholic doctrine and ex
plaining the Catholic point of view
on street corners in New York and
London for many years.
