Selling Catholicism : Bishop Sheen and the power of television by Christopher Owen Lynch( )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 2,348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sheen provided his viewers with a sense of stability by sentimentalizing the medieval world and holding it out as a model for contemporary society. Offering clear-cut moral direction in order to eliminate the anxiety of cultural change, he discussed topics ranging from the role of women to the perils of Communism. Sheen's rhetoric united both Protestant and Catholic audiences, relflecting and forming a vision of mainstream, postwar America". -- Jacket
