  • Saving Secular Society offers a practical vision of the evangelising of culture. Building upon Dr Plunkett?s experience as an academic and sociologist and drawing on the writings of Pope John Paul II and the documents of the Pontifical Council for Culture, Saving Secular Society offers us a new vision of what it means to evangelise culture.

    We are living at an exciting yet complex time in human history. The advance of science and technology is equally matched by the advance of fundamentalism, the war on terror and secularism. However, our call to spread the ?good news? is as imperative as ever.

    Dr Plunkett shows us how followers of the gospel evangelise through their artistic, scientific, intellectual or professional work, their family and social life, and their charitable and spiritual activities.

    Fresh eyes, fresh hope, fresh vigour. These are the gifts the Churchs engagement with contemporary culture needs in order to concretise the pastoral approach to culture that I have long been mandated to promote as President of the Pontifical Council for Culture. This is the task Dr Plunkett has set himself as he echoes many of the riches of the Churchs ancient missionary tradition and draws particularly on the new evangelisation encouraged by Popes Paul VI, John Paul II and now Benedict XVI.
