The main idea is that society and even the church has gone too far astray to be counted on. The writer suggests that we look to Monastic life and try to implement many of those ways of life into our own.

I'm a bit divided on some of the ideas in the book, but the main idea is something we talk about a lot here. Things are really bad. Even priests and the church cant be counted on to be conservative.

The writer suggest we might need to find our own little communities and hunker down for a while.
Overall a good book, at least for thinking and listening to while walking the dog.
