Select Works of Os Guinness (2 vols.)



With the rise of secularism and forces antithetical to the Christian faith, believers are faced with the question of how to follow Christ in the modern world. Os Guinness, Christian philosopher and social critic, has spent his writing career seeking to help Christians understand how they can both be faithful to Jesus and engage with the culture. In these works, Guinness critiques both the church growth movement and the rise of postmodern secularism. Those who want to confront the issues will find no better guide than Guinness.

In one of the world’s great ironies, the Christian faith contributed decisively to the rise of the modern world, but has been undermined decisively by the modern world it helped to create. The Christian faith has become its own gravedigger. In the 25 years since philosopher and social critic Os Guinness first published The Gravedigger Files, much has happened: the fall of the Soviet Union, the rise of the computer age, the reemergence of China and India, the rise of Islamic terrorism, and the worldwide revitalization and politicization of religion. The central mystery of Dr. Guinness’ spy novel inspired by his affection for John le Carré thrillers remains unsolved: Can Christians regain the full integrity of faith in Christ while fully and properly engaged in the advanced modern world? This new edition of The Last Christian on Earth, which includes previously unpublished top-secret memos, is Dr. Guinness’s parable about the future of the Christian church in the West. Written in the grand tradition of le Carré, Fleming, and Clancy, this thriller pays homage to the genre while transcending it—because the real-life ending has yet to be written!

Dining with the Devil: The Megachurch Movement Flirts with Modernity

  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1993
  • Pages: 116

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

What shapes the message of the church? The Bible and Spirit or society and culture? Os Guinness points out perils of compromise in the church growth movement. Critiquing the worst excesses of the movement while desiring for the growth of God’s kingdom, this work provides a much needed antidote for the idea that God cares only about the size of an individual church.
