Event Details

Join the School of Public Policy Learning for a captivating evening discussion with Rod Dreher as he discusses his vision for the future of Christian life and political engagement in an increasingly secularized America. 

David Brooks of the New York Times, called Dreher's best-selling novel, The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation, "the most important religious book of the decade." Dreher draws arguments from great Christian thinkers ranging from Benedict of Nursia in the sixth century to Alisdair MacIntyre to say that people of faith need to step back from involvement in national politics to focus more on local matters and personal faith commitments.

Respondents to Dreher's remarks will be Rankin Wilbourne, Senior Pastor of Pacific Crossroads Church, and Dale Sieverding, Director of Worship at St. Monica's Catholic Community. Pete Peterson, Dean of Pepperdine's School of Public Policy will be the evening's moderator.

Organizer

Pepperdine, School of Public Policy

Today's public leaders not only need to possess the tools of effective policy analysis, but they must understand how these policies will be accepted and sustained by a public. Pepperdine offers students that distinctively comprehensive curriculum, which contemplates that there is, indeed, a "public" in public policy – one that must be both involved and informed to form sustainable solutions.
