This book makes the distinction between lay ministry and lay apostolate. It gives a surprising, provocative answer to the question it asks. It encourages men and women of Faith to commit wholeheartedly to the vocation of the laity as defined by Vatican Council II: "To make the Church present and fruitful in those places and circumstances where it is only through them that she can become the salt of the earth."

While lay participation is a good thing, Russell Shaw argues that we've forgotten the crucial distinction between ministry (what we do inside the Church) and apostolate (what we do in the secular world). We've almost completely neglected the lay apostolate, he says, and that serious, dangerous mistake has gravely handicapped the Church in its work of evangelizing culture.
