Rod Dreher’s The Benedict Option is being released tomorrow. Collin Hansen reviews it here.
My main fear with Dreher’s book is that the people who need it most won’t read it. How do you convince Americans that replacing fast food and cable news with fasting and hard labor will be good for their souls?
Overwhelming evangelical support for Trump suggests not many conservative Christians would agree with Dreher that “losing political power might just be the thing that saves the church’s soul.” Rather, they seem to believe the American Empire needs our partisan politics in service of God’s kingdom.
Dreher will have many interviews this week. This one with Russell Moore is bound to be one of the better ones.
