A short book that explores how Christians down through the ages have viewed work, and the newness of the spirit of Opus Dei, which is seen as rooted in the Old and the New Testaments, in the lives of the early Chirstians and in the teachings of the Church Fathers. Contrasts the religious vocation and the lay vocation to sanctity in the middle of the world. With numerous quotes from St. Josemaría, it helps the reader to better appreciate the Work’s historical importance, and fosters the desire to turn work into prayer, with God’s help. Written in an attractive style with theological precision. Useful for all.
