Opus Dei: An Investigation into the Powerful Secretive Society within the Catholic Church

Customer Reviews:

Balanced and informative

By Felipe D. Salazar - August 7, 2007

Bottom line the book was very informative, which is what I was looking for. The writer takes a critical look at Opus Dei, and does a good job covering the history of the organization and the founder as well as describing current activities. If you are looking to learn about Opus Dei from an outsider's point of view, I highly recommend this book.

a fine, balanced overview of a Catholic sect

By Sick of Spin - July 14, 2005

It is easy to recognize that some or all of the negative

reviews for this book here on Amazon were written by Opus Dei members. Contrary to what they claim, Walsh has written a well researched history of the movement, reporting accurately and fairly on some of the controversy surrounding its founder and his legacy. This is a balanced work well worth the read.

A good expose

By William A. Llano "belmarduk" - October 1, 2010

As one who was invited to join Opus Dei and did not, I must say that the book is fairly accurate. I do not mind their goal, which is personal holiness, but I do disagree with some of their views and attitudes. I found them cliqueish(one should only go to confession to a priest that belongs to the order)and distrustful of many other Catholic groups(especially the Charismatic(Pentecostal) movement in the Church). I also have a problem with their founder's(Escriva) anti-semitism.
