Select Works of Os Guinness (2 vols.)
by Os Guinness
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.
Crossway Studies on Justification and Salvation (11 vols.)
by Brian Vickers, Gary L. W. Johnson, Os Guinness, . . .
This collection of theological works on justification and salvation clarifies nuanced theological positions about the nature of salvation, defends penal substitutionary theories of the atonement, and shows why Christians can have full confidence in the perseverance of the salvation Christ bought for for them. Notable authors—including R.C. Sproul, John Piper, Sam Storms, and Jerry Bridges–join others to provide a wealth of pastoral experience and theological acumen on the perennially critical discussion of “justification by grace through faith.” Authors examine key biblical texts, engage historical theology, illuminate complex theology, and draw out the implications of justification in the life of the believer with skill and clarity. These varied and relevant volumes lead readers on an educational journey regarding justification and salvation, explaining these central, but often misunderstood doctrines.

Renaissance: The Power of the Gospel However Dark the Times
by Os Guinness
We live in dark times. Christians wonder: Are the best days of the Christian faith behind us? Has modernity made Christian thought irrelevant and impotent? Is society beyond all hope of redemption and renewal? In Renaissance, Os Guinness declares no. Throughout history, the Christian faith has transformed entire cultures and civilizations, building cathedrals and universities, proclaiming God’s goodness, beauty and truth through art and literature, science and medicine. The Christian faith may similarly change the world again today. The church can be revived to become a renewing power in our society—if we answer the call to a new Christian renaissance that challenges darkness with the hope of Christian faith.

Fool’s Talk: Recovering the Art of Christian Persuasion
by Os Guinness
In our post-Christian context, public life has become markedly more secular and private life infinitely more diverse. Yet many Christians still rely on cookie-cutter approaches to evangelism and apologetics. Most of these methods assume that people are open, interested and needy for spiritual insight when increasingly most people are not. Our urgent need, then, is the capacity to persuade—to make a convincing case for the gospel to people who are not interested in it. In his magnum opus, Os Guinness offers a comprehensive presentation of the art and power of creative persuasion. Christians have often relied on proclaiming and preaching, protesting and picketing. But we are strikingly weak in persuasion—the ability to talk to people who are closed to what we are saying. Actual persuasion requires more than a one-size-fits-all approach. Guinness notes, “Jesus never spoke to two people the same way, and neither should we.”

The Global Public Square: Religious Freedom and the Making of a World Safe for Diversity
by Os Guinness
How do we live with our deepest differences? In a world torn by religious conflict, the threats to human dignity are terrifyingly real. Some societies face harsh government repression and brutal sectarian violence, while others are divided by bitter conflicts over religion’s place in public life. Is there any hope for living together peacefully? Os Guinness argues that the way forward for the world lies in promoting freedom of religion and belief for people of all faiths and none. He sets out a vision of a civil and cosmopolitan global public square, and how it can be established by championing the freedom of the soul—the inviolable freedom of thought, conscience and religion. In particular he calls for leadership that has the courage to act on behalf of the common good.

Last Call for Liberty: How America’s Genius for Freedom Has Become Its Greatest Threat
by Os Guinness
The hour is critical. The American republic is suffering its gravest crisis since the Civil War. Conflicts, hostility, and incivility now threaten to tear the country apart. Competing visions have led to a dangerous moment of cultural self-destruction. This is no longer politics as usual, but an era of political warfare where our enemies are not foreign adversaries, but our fellow citizens. Yet the roots of the crisis are deeper than many realize. Os Guinness argues that we face a fundamental crisis of freedom, as America’s genius for freedom has become her Achilles’ heel. Our society's conflicts are rooted in two rival views of freedom, one embodied in “1776” and the ideals of the American Revolution, and the other in “1789” and the ideals of the French Revolution. Once again America has become a house divided, and Americans must make up their minds as to which freedom to follow. Will the constitutional republic be restored or replaced?

Carpe Diem Redeemed: Seizing the Day, Discerning the Times
by Os Guinness
You only live once—if then. Life is short, and it can be as easily wasted as lived to the full. In the midst of our harried modern world, how do we make the most of life and the time we have? In these fast and superficial times, Os Guinness calls us to consequential living. In strong contrast to both Eastern and secularist views of time, he reorients our very notion of history, not as cyclical nor as meaningless, but as linear and purposeful. In the Judeo-Christian tradition, time and history are meaningful, and human beings have agency to live with freedom and consequence in partnership with God. Thus we can seek to serve God's purpose for our generation, read the times, and discern our call for this moment in history. Our time on earth has significance. Live rightly, discern the times, and redeem the day.

Impossible People: Christian Courage and the Struggle for the Soul of Civilization
by Os Guinness
The church in the West is at a critical moment. While the gospel is exploding throughout the global south, Western civilization faces militant assaults from aggressive secularism and radical Islam. Will the church resist the seductive shaping power of advanced modernity? More than ever, Christians must resist the negative cultural forces of our day with fortitude and winsomeness. What is needed is followers of Christ who are willing to face reality without flinching and respond with a faithfulness that is unwavering. Os Guinness describes these Christians as “impossible people,” those who have “hearts that can melt with compassion, but with faces like flint and backbones of steel who are unmanipulable, unbribable, undeterrable and unclubbable, without ever losing the gentleness, the mercy, the grace and the compassion of our Lord.”

A Free People’s Suicide: Sustainable Freedom and the American Future
by Os Guinness
Nothing is more daring in the American experiment than the founders’ belief that the American republic could remain free forever. But how was this to be done, and are Americans doing it today? It is not enough for freedom to be won. It must also be sustained. Cultural observer Os Guinness argues that the American experiment in freedom is at risk. Summoning historical evidence on how democracies evolve, Guinness shows that contemporary views of freedom—most typically, a negative freedom from constraint—are unsustainable because they undermine the conditions necessary for freedom to thrive. He calls us to reconsider the audacity of sustainable freedom and what it would take to restore it.

Dining with the Devil: The Megachurch Movement Flirts with Modernity
by Os Guinness
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.
The Last Christian on Earth: Uncover the Enemy’s Plot to Undermine the Church
by Os 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 wo...
