We all agree that modern society needs change: from the economy, to public morality, to laws protecting marriage and the unborn. But what will the new society look like, exactly? The opponents of Christianity often conjure dark images (mostly mythical) of theocracies, complete with witch-hunts, conversions-at-the-sword, and forced morality. But this is obviously not the change that the Church seeks. On the other hand, how can there be a re-Christianization of society in an age of tolerance and plurality?

Renowned theologian Martin Rhonheimer tackles these questions head-on as he explains the message of Opus Dei, placing it in a historical context that illuminates its radical implications for modern Christians. He relates this message to broader developments within the Catholic Church, particularly since Vatican II, that will have vital importance for the future: the relationship of Church and State, the importance of religious liberty as a basic human right, and the role of the laity in the evangelization of culture. These insights, sometimes surprising, will help all Christians to bring Christ to the public forum transforming the world from within.
