Join the School of Public Policy for a captivating evening discussion with Rod Dreher as he discusses his vision for the future of Christian life and political engagement in an increasingly secularized America. Called "the most important religious book of the decade" by David Brooks in the New York Times, Dreher draws arguments from great Christian thinkers ranging from Benedict of Nursia in the sixth century to Alisdair MacIntyre to say that people of faith need to step back from involvement in national politics to focus more on local matters and personal faith commitments.

Dreher is a journalist and writer who focuses on the intersection of religion, culture, and politics. He is a senior editor at The American Conservative and the author of The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians
