Like Rod Dreher’s Benedict Option, released earlier this year,
Gehrz and Pattie invite the church into a timely new way of being…
The four instincts that are at the heart of The Pietist Option:
- We EXPERIENCE life with God. Christian faith is primarily relational.
- Christians are BETTER TOGETHER than apart. We lament the divisions in Christ’s body
- Christianity is LESS complex than we often make it, but also MORE encompassing and significant than we make it.
- No matter how bad things get, Christians have HOPE for better times.
