Two defenses of the Benedict Option

Both Alan Jacobs and Carl Trueman recently sought to address some of the concerns of the critics of Rod Dreher’s Benedict Option.

Trueman links to Dreher’s FAQ on the Benedict Option, which seems to be a helpful introduction. I am familiar with Dreher’s idea, but I hope to read through these ideas to get a fuller understanding.

Brian Mattson wrote a perceptive criticism of the Benedict Option last year, and Dreher gave a brief response. I think that Trueman’s post above is partly directed at criticisms like Mattson’s.
