Above, a photo I just took of the books from my library that I have set aside for reading to inform me in the book I plan to write about the Benedict Option. I don’t believe this is an exhaustive list — I need to read Morris Berman, for example — but it is where I stand right now. A survey of these titles should make it clear that this is a theological and cultural project, not primarily a political one.

UPDATE: I forgot to mention that I have Hauerwas on order.
