Rod Dreher


Rod Dreher is a columnist for The American Conservative and the author of several books, most recently The Benedict Option. On this episode of Cultivated, we talk about the precarious place Christians hold in contemporary American society, about the Benedict Option – a strategy for navigating that society, and about the crucial importance of beauty and goodness for the Church’s witness. It’s a conversation that ranges from A Confederacy of Dunces to Dante to Terrence Malick.
