Rod Dreher’s “The Benedict Option” is one of the most anticipated and talked-about Christian books in recent memory. How do Christians carry on and live out the faith in this “new Dark Age,” as Dreher puts it? We’ve asked leading Christian writers and thinkers to share their thoughts on “The Benedict Option.”
I haven’t yet read Dreher’s book, but the opinions expressed in these reflections vary widely.
Update: Andy Crouch gives one of the clearest and most succinct summaries of “BenOp” and its controversy.
Another update: “Ten theses” on BenOp from Andrew Wilson.
