The Immortal “I”
Eugene B. Shea
“... perhaps the most fascinating and enlightening book that I have ever read. ...
I am going through it for the third time.”
Fr. George Karnik, Archdiocese of Dubuque
Co-Founder, Christian Experience Weekend
This seminal book, appraised as an ‘astonishing contribution,’ acclaimed by renowned priests and scholars, presents Christ's words in modern terms. Reveals the profound 21st century life-transforming Wisdom inherent in his 'simple' words; and shows that current discoveries in the social sciences are beginning to validate and amplify what Christ said 2,000 years ago.
Identifies for the first time our spiritual nemesis—the 'autopilot' in the brain which competes with the Soul for the management of our lives, exposing the genesis of our motiva-tions and behavior--why we do what we do―and resolving the mind/brain/behavior enigma.
Reveals the ‘secret of the saints:’ the meaning and dual purposes hidden in their seem-ingly interminable, often arcane spiritual practices. Stripped to their essentials, they pro-vide a clear avocational path of ever-growing spiritual growth, and psychological and social well-being.

“Still carrying the pain and anger of an abusive childhood in my fifties, I was unhappy and estranged. ... Our priest gave us the book and it was like going from deep darkness into bright sunlight! ... I felt like a tsunami had washed over me. My heart bloomed with HOPE for the first time, and it was so beautiful! ... I read the book 4 or 5 times... The Gift of each day now has meaning and purpose. ... I look in the mirror and see someone I never really knew. I praise God for holding me close and bringing me to TODAY.”
