America's churches are beset by challenges in a rapidly secularising culture. They're being hollowed out by the departure of young people and a watered-down spirituality. Frightened Christians wonder what went wrong and what they can do about these trends. The Benedict Option is a guide for Christians under siege today. Politics won't save them, and neither will the courts. In this visionary book, Dreher urges today's faithful to be new St. Benedicts. Christians must build up their local churches, create new schools, and take up practices that can help them face today's world with confidence.
