Frank Sheed (d. 1981) and Maisie Ward (d. 1975) were a remarkable couplefounders of Sheed & Ward publishers, authors of innumerable books on Catholic history, theology, and spirituality, and pioneers in promoting the Catholic Revival of the 20th century. Frank Sheed was the best known Catholic apologist of the century (perhaps second overall to C.S. Lewis), while Maisie Ward won renown for her biographies and lives of the saints. By linking the lives of a married couple this work presents a husband and wife who gave themselves to the promotion and justification of the Christian life, who aimed to invigorate the Catholic mind, and whose life-work helped bring the Church to a new level of maturity and respectability.
