The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation
The Trinity Forum hosted an Evening Conversation with Rod Dreher on his newly released book “The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation,” on March 15, 2017. In this fascinating discussion, Dreher presents a radical vision for the future of Christian life, and calls on American Christians to embrace an ancient way of life modeled by St. Benedict, a sixth century monk who built enduring and separatist Christian communities focused on prayer, hospitality, and spiritual practice. Such self-imposed exile from mainstream culture, combined with the construction of a resilient and creative counterculture, is, Dreher argues, a vital means of addressing challenging cultural and political issues.
