Publisher's Summary

Hahn recounts the significant role Opus Dei played in his conversion from evangelical Christianity to Catholicism and explains why its teachings remain at the center of his life. Hahn relates personal stories to show how Opus Dei's spirituality enriches the meaning of daily work and transforms ordinary relationships. 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.
