Pastor Chris writes, “We’re so very pleased to share this terrific news with you. Dreher’s books, The Benedict Option and Live Not By Lies, have had a big impact on our ministry in this last year. And, speaking of this last year, I am ever more convinced that Rod’s prophetic works are essential guides for how Christians must move forward in times like these. In my view, the books are some of the most important Christian resources of our time.”
