    Has anyone looked into Rod Dreher's book and idea. I think it is a great idea to form intentional Christian communities and to deepen our faith and faith life. It is not running for the hills but shoring up the foundations.

    Generally I favor intentional Christian communities as a concept, but I don't think that that's what Rod Dreher's book suggests in its fullness... The title itself suggests the fullness: namely to follow the example of Benedict of Norcia to retreat into the wilderness and cut off contact with the world

    But the book if you read that does not suggest that.
