He offers insights for reconciling spiritual and material goals, discussing such topics as ambition, workaholism, friendship, sex and the place of prayer and sacrifice in living a Christian life. Engaging and enlightening, Ordinary Work, Extraordinary Grace is both a moving personal story and an inspiring work of contemporary spirituality.

Absolutely. I got this book because I was curious about Opus Dei--what do the members do? How do people join? What is the point? This book answered all those questions and more.
This is a fantastic Introduction to Opus Dei. Highly recommended.
