An Evening Conversation
with Rod Dreher
How Dante Can Save Your Life
The Trinity Forum, Montgomery Bell Academy, and St. Paul Christian Academy are delighted to invite you to an Evening Conversation with best-selling author Rod Dreher on "How Dante Can Save Your Life."
Considered one of the greatest works of literature, The Divine Comedy plunges the reader into a deeper understanding of the dark recesses of one's own heart and the dangers to one's soul. During this Evening Conversation, Dreher will explore the ways in which this epic poem is particularly relevant to our time, drawing from his book How Dante Can Save Your Life: The Life-Changing Wisdom of History's Greatest Poem, which examines how Dante's epic brings readers "from misery into happiness."
Rod Dreher is a journalist and writer who focuses on the intersection of religion, culture, and politics. He is a senior editor at The American Conservative and the author of Crunchy Cons, The Little Way of Ruthie Leming, as well as the best-selling book The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation. His work has appeared in numerous publications including the National Review, First Things, and The Wall Street Journal, and broadcast on NPR’s All Things Considered and BBC Radio.
