Summary
"Throughout much of the nineteenth century, both secular and Catholic leaders assumed that the Church and the modern world were locked in a battle to the death. The triumph of modernity would not only finish the Church as a consequential player in world history; it would also lead to the death of religious conviction. But today, the Catholic Church is far more vital and consequential than it was 200 years ago. Ironically, in its sometimes-bruising encounter with modernity Catholicism rediscovered its evangelical essence and developed intellectual tools capable of rescuing the imperiled modern project."--
