Walker Percy And The Benedict Option: Confronting The Culture Of Death

In his prophetic mode, Percy said we are living through the birth of a post-Christian order that worships technology and the will to power, and that thus devalues life's sacredness. Drawing on Percy's scorching estimate of contemporary American life—in his novels and essays as well as his involvement in the Civil Rights struggle—Wood explains why Percy’s diagnosis may find its healing remedy in Rod Dreher's Benedict Option. For Percy and BenOppers alike, we need new countercultural movements to defend and preserve what is uniquely human.                   Presented by Ralph Wood
