This is off topic but I thought some of you might enjoy reading this. Unless you're living a rock, you must be familiar with the "Benedict Option." This article was written by an Eastern Catholic professor and I think he makes right criticisms of Dreher's ideas. I think he touches on some of the things that were discussed on these threads.

 

 

The whole "Benedict option" smacks of just such a "transformation of life into lifestyle," and its uses and abuses of Benedict have turned that great saint into a commodity to be marketed to "anonymous and rootless [Christian] consumers," alas.

The authors includes a link to this article which looks interesting.
