On April 27-28, 2018, Lead U Discipleship hosted its second conference in our Lead U Conference Series. The conference, “For the Life of the World: Christianity and Cultural Engagement,” aimed to explore the way in which the universal Church, local churches, and individual Christians should engage the culture with the gospel. We hoped to provide helpful biblical, theological, and historical insight into the problem and potential solutions.
About the Session:
In Session #3 of the conference, “The Benedict Option,” Dr. Brad Pardue summarizes the work of Rod Dreher’s book of the same title and makes some suggestions for implementing some of Dreher’s ideas.
