How can Christians best respond to a situation in which historic Christian belief and practice is increasingly marginalized socially, culturally, and politically? On July 12, 2017, I participated in a panel discussion of this question at the National Press Club in Washington, D. C. The discussion was hosted by the Institute on Religion & Democracy and moderated by its President, Mark Tooley. I and four other panelists responded to Rod Dreher’s The Benedict Option and provided constructive suggestions of our own. I offered what I call–playfully–“An Abrahamic Alternative to the Benedict Option.”
Each panelists spoke for 15 minutes (I spoke last). After all of the panelists had spoken, we fielded questions from the press and the audience for about 30 minutes.
