The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation

In a radical new vision for the future of Christianity NYT bestselling author and conservative columnist Rod Dreher calls on American Christians to prepare for the coming Dark Age by embracing an ancient Christian way of life br br The light of the Christian faith is flickering out all over the West and only the willfully blind refuse to see it From the outside American churches are beset by challenges to religious liberty in a rapidly secularizing culture From the inside they are being hollowed out by the departure of young people and a watered down pseudo spirituality Political solutions have failed as the triumph of gay marriage and the self destruction of the Republican Party indicate and the future of religious freedom has never been in greater doubt The center is not holding The West cut off from its Christian roots is falling into a new Dark Age br br The bad news is that the roots of religious decline run deeper than most Americans realize The good news is that the blueprint for a time tested Christian response to this decline is older still In The Benedict Option Dreher calls on traditional Christians to learn from the example of St Benedict of Nursia a sixth century monk who turned from the chaos and decadence of the collapsing Roman Empire and found a new way to live out the faith in community For five difficult centuries Benedict s monks kept the faith alive through the Dark Ages and prepared the way for the rebirth of civilization What do ordinary st century Christians Catholic Protestant and Orthodox have to learn from the teaching and example of this great spiritual father That they must read the signs of the times abandon hope for a political solution to our civilization s problems and turn their attention to creating resilient spiritual centers that can survive the coming storm Whatever their Christian tradition they must draw on the secrets of Benedictine wisdom to build up the local church create countercultural schools based on the classical tradition rebuild family life thicken communal bonds and develop survival strategies for doctors teachers and others on the front lines of persecution br br Now is a time of testing when believers will learn the difference between shallow optimism and Christian hope However dark the shadow falling over the West the light of Christianity need not flicker out It will not be easy but Christians who are brave enough to face the religious decline reject trendy solutions and return to ancient traditions will find the strength not only to survive but to thrive joyfully in the post Christian West The Benedict Option shows believers how to build the resistance and resilience to face a hostile modern world with the confidence and fervor of the early church Christians face a time of choosing with the fate of Christianity in Western civilization hanging in the balance In this powerful challenge to the complacency of contemporary Christianity Dreher shows why those in all churches who fail to take the Benedict Option aren t going to make it

The Iliad

The i Iliad i is one of the two great epics of Homer and is typically described as one of the greatest war stories of all time but to say the i Iliad i is a war story does not begin to describe the emotional sweep of its action and characters Achilles Helen Hector and other heroes of Greek myth and history in the tenth and final year of the Greek siege of Troy br br Two primary objectives of Herb Jordan s translation of the Iliad have been line for line rendition and readability Most literary translators practicing today would doubt that such a thing could be achieved within the confines of the blank verse line that predominates in English but Jordan has made an Anglo American Iliad of remarkable immediacy and energy It nevertheless retains that slight flavor of cultural remoteness without which no translation of so ancient a text can be believed It is a splendid achievement Henry Taylor winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry is Professor Emeritus of Literature at American University His translation of Sophocles Electra appeared in the Penn Greek Drama series br br Jordan has produced a very readable Iliad that moves quickly and fluidly Without descending into the overly prosaic his rhythm establishes a fine pace for Homer s narrative The translation succeeds at both capturing what Matthew Arnold called the general effect of Homer and doing so in an accessible style Bruce S Thornton Professor of Classics and Humanities at California State University in Fresno is the author of numerous essays and reviews on Greek culture and seven books including A Student s Guide to Classics

The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation

In a radical new vision for the future of Christianity NYT bestselling author and conservative columnist Rod Dreher calls on American Christians to prepare for the coming Dark Age by embracing an ancient Christian way of life br br The light of the Christian faith is flickering out all over the West and only the willfully blind refuse to see it From the outside American churches are beset by challenges to religious liberty in a rapidly secularizing culture From the inside they are being hollowed out by the departure of young people and a watered down pseudo spirituality Political solutions have failed as the triumph of gay marriage and the self destruction of the Republican Party indicate and the future of religious freedom has never been in greater doubt The center is not holding The West cut off from its Christian roots is falling into a new Dark Age br br The bad news is that the roots of religious decline run deeper than most Americans realize The good news is that the blueprint for a time tested Christian response to this decline is older still In The Benedict Option Dreher calls on traditional Christians to learn from the example of St Benedict of Nursia a sixth century monk who turned from the chaos and decadence of the collapsing Roman Empire and found a new way to live out the faith in community For five difficult centuries Benedict s monks kept the faith alive through the Dark Ages and prepared the way for the rebirth of civilization What do ordinary st century Christians Catholic Protestant and Orthodox have to learn from the teaching and example of this great spiritual father That they must read the signs of the times abandon hope for a political solution to our civilization s problems and turn their attention to creating resilient spiritual centers that can survive the coming storm Whatever their Christian tradition they must draw on the secrets of Benedictine wisdom to build up the local church create countercultural schools based on the classical tradition rebuild family life thicken communal bonds and develop survival strategies for doctors teachers and others on the front lines of persecution br br Now is a time of testing when believers will learn the difference between shallow optimism and Christian hope However dark the shadow falling over the West the light of Christianity need not flicker out It will not be easy but Christians who are brave enough to face the religious decline reject trendy solutions and return to ancient traditions will find the strength not only to survive but to thrive joyfully in the post Christian West The Benedict Option shows believers how to build the resistance and resilience to face a hostile modern world with the confidence and fervor of the early church Christians face a time of choosing with the fate of Christianity in Western civilization hanging in the balance In this powerful challenge to the complacency of contemporary Christianity Dreher shows why those in all churches who fail to take the Benedict Option aren t going to make it
