Responding to the Benedict Option

IRD hosted a robust conversation at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on responding to the “Benedict Option”. Following the decline of nominal Christian culture in the United States, how ought American Christians engage in the public square with a culture that is ambivalent or hostile to their historic beliefs?

Speakers at the event include Bruce Ashford, Professor of Theology and Culture at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary; Joseph Capizzi of The Institute for Human Ecology and Professor of Moral Theology at the Catholic University of America; Cherie Harder, President of The Trinity Forum; Joseph Hartman, Attorney and Adjunct Assistant Professor at Georgetown University Department of Government; and Alison Howard is the Director of Alliance Relations at Alliance Defending Freedom.
