In The Church and the Modern Era (AD 1846–2005), Catholic author David Wagner explores how the Church met the challenges of the industrial revolution, world wars, and technological advancement in what became a period of dramatic change both within the Church and throughout the world. Wagner profiles some of the Church’s most powerful examples of virtue and faith in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries such as St. John Henry Newman, St. Thérèse  of Lisieux, St. Faustina, and St. Maximillian Kolbe, and corrects common myths about the Church many still accept as fact.
