A Bit Out of Date
This wasn't the book I was looking for. It is a reprint of a book written in the late 80's and has not been updated except for a new introduction. Nothing is said about the beatification (1992) or the canonization (2002) of Josemaria Escriva, the man who started Opus Dei or any other recent developments. Also, Walsh keeps referring to the Constitutions of Opus Dei from 1950. These ceased to be effective in 1982 when Opus Dei became a personal prelature and they were replaced by a new set of statutes. Walsh is aware of this fact, so it is puzzling why he keeps referring to the 1950 Constitutions. Anyways, the book is almost entirely negative about Opus Dei and gave me little sense of what attracts people to it or how members of Opus Dei actually live.
