Rod Dreher: What is the Benedict Option?
Rod Dreher: What is the Benedict Option?
Written By Laurie Higgins   |   01.23.20

In Part 2 of Pastor Derek Buikema’s interview with author Rod Dreher, they discuss his book, The Benedict Option, which explores ways that Christians in our post-Christian societies can create communities in which a shared “basis for moral reasoning” can be fostered and in which Christians can “live out the faith” in ways that make it “resilient” and, thereby, help restore culture. Rod describes what the Benedict Option is and, equally important, what it isn’t. In such a time as this of radical and comprehensive moral, theological, and ideological chaos, Rod’s radical vision is both compelling and inspiring.
