On the Road to Emmaus
The Catholic Dialogue with America and Modernity
Olsen defines the current challenge for religious persons as how to be "in" but not "of" the world. Addressing some aspects of being in the world, he traces the historical roots of the idea of Catholic incarnational humanism and analyzes the problems specific to Christian faith existing within a larger society of nonbelievers. Olsen suggests that how we address such issues affects the religious and nonreligious alike, especially in a country of diverse religions.
