The Work of God

Reviews of John Allen's new book on Opus Dei. I can't believe I haven't read it yet!

  • Fr. Richard John Neuhaus in First Things. (It's in his monthly Public Square column. Well, if one can call something that takes up a third of the print publication a column! Search for "Opus Dei" on the page.)

  • Fr. John Jay Hughes in the National Catholic Reporter. His "best work to date."

  • Renée LaReau in Busted Halo.

  • Christopher Howse in The Tablet. (Why the page says "Lead Book Reviews - May 2020" is beyond me. A prophesy?)

In case you haven't yet heard, Terry Gross' interview with John Allen will be on "Fresh Air" this Monday night (Nov 28.)

From a Link accessible from NPR.org (scroll down to the bottom of the NPR page):

November 28 · Opus Dei is a lay Catholic group founded in 1928; its core ideal is the sanctification of work. But critics and some former members have accused the group of cult-like practices and of promoting a right-wing agenda. We talk with John Allen, Vatican correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter, about his new book on Opus Dei.
