Many of you know that I regularly attend the National Conference on Christian Apologetics (NCCA), held in (or nearby) Charlotte, North Carolina every year, in October.  Sponsored by Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES), founded by Norman Geisler and Richard Land (Christian apologists), the NCCA is the longest and best-attended conference of its kind in the United States.  I have a book's worth of notes from my past attendances there. The NCCA is a weapons-grade display of religious capitalistic mentality, supported by cognitive dissonance and magnified narcissism and self-deceit.  Motivational speaker Frank Turek (a Christian apologist) is always the emcee, and among the annual speakers, you'll find William Lane Craig, Os Guinness (grandson of the beer-maker), Hugh Ross (who heads "Reasons to Believe"), Gary Habermas (the "Shroud of Turin" apologist), Jason Lisle (from the Institute for Creation Research), Michael Behe, J.P. Moreland, and many others.  (Mike Licona has been there in the past, too.)  A ...

How's Your Day Looking? In Game Plan for Life, Os Guinness mentions this quote from a 90-year-old Winston Churchill: "Life has been a grand journey—well worth making once." Once. That's all we get. No dry runs. No do-overs. This day you're living now is not a dress rehearsal or a practice lap. You're on the stage. You're in the game. Start playing. What this kind of thinking does is rip the disguise off today, revealing it to be every bit as momentous as the first morning on a new job or the night before major surgery. There are things to be said. Today. There are people to take notice of. Today. There are ordinary decisions to take seriously. Today. As the Bible says, "Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom" (Psalm 90:12). The newspaper commits a page or two each morning to dozens of death notices—guys who once supervised a work crew at the auto plant, who once coached boys' baseball on Saturday afternoons, who once served on the school board or were once active in th ...
Reviews "For decades Os Guinness has been one of the most nuanced, realistic, yet hopeful voices calling Christians to engagement with culture. This latest volume from him should not be missed by anyone. Os summarizes some of the most helpful recent discussions, updates many of his own lifelong challenges to the church, and provides many fresh insights. Highly recommended." -Tim Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City "Drawing on his years of perceptive cultural analysis and his wide understanding of history, Os Guinness issues a penetrating call to the Christian Church to take up the battle against the deep inroads of secularization by refusing to be conformed to the spirit of the age. This book encourages us to learn from the past and avoid repeating its mistakes, to be aware of the oft-forgotten influence of Christianity on Western culture and to engage more deeply with the truths of Scripture. It rightly argues for a return to God, not to an era, and sees our only hope in a return to the . ...

Matt 13:9-17 is all about the worth and definition of our Lord’s parables. I see them as windows through which one can hear and see divine truth. And the world’s current ignorance of their transcendence is both, a warning and a curse. “Human life has traditionally been lived in a house with windows to other worlds. These windows may have sometimes become dirty, broken or boarded up, but they were always there. Only in the modern world do humans live in … ‘a world without windows.’ Shut off from transcendence, modern people are shut up to triviality.” – Os Guinness

Born September 30, 1941 (age 72) China Occupation Author and social critic Alma mater Oriel College, Oxford www.osguinness.com Os Guinness (born September 30, 1941) is an author and social critic.[1] BiographyEdit Born in China, he is the great-great-great-grandson of Arthur Guinness, the Dublin brewer. He was a witness to the climax of the Chinese revolution in 1949, and returned to England in 1951, where he went to school and college. He received a B.D. (honours) from University of London in 1966 and a D.Phil from Oriel College, Oxford in 1981.[1] Os Guinness speaking at the C.S. Lewis Foundation, 2011 Bill Edgar and Os Guinness at the CICCU main event 2013, St Andrew the Great, Cambridge In the late 1960s, he was a leader at L'Abri, and after Oxford a free lance reporter for the BBC.[2] In 1984 Guinness came to the United States, where he was first a Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center, and then a Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institution.

"Idolatry is dominant n our personal lives, yet irrelevant n our mistaken estimations." (Os Guinness)
"You may say that many Christians are atheists unawares." Os Guinness [Your god is too safe]
"Now, the yearning for righteousness, Christlikeness, and a devout life is an admirable longing; indeed, it is an essential longing of discipleship. But the great mistake is to somehow embrace this as a call to individualism and self-obsession. It is not. As the French theologian Jacques Ellul said, “The yearning for holiness is not at odds with the desire for relevance. For while holiness sets us apart unto God, it is God who calls us into the world.” Christians are called to God and sent by God into the world. Os Guinness captures the necessary tension between our need to pursue holy lives as individuals and the desire to connect meaningfully with our culture and those around us. He speaks of “prophetic untimeliness” and the sense that the man or woman of God lives by the eternal in time. Likewise, Richard John Neuhaus, former editor of First Things magazine, suggested we are to be “in the world, not of the world, but for the world.” The danger for many of us is to live the extremes in eith ...
The American revolutions project was the real world. Nothing- absolutely nothing-in the entire American experiment is more daring than this, the conviction that a Free People can BECOME FREE, LIVE FREE, AND REMAIN FREE. They can then be free forever. But can freedom truly last forever? There are three tasks in establishing a free society that hopes to remain free- winning freedom, ordering freedom, and sustaining freedom- and each was a prominent consideration to the American founders.( Os Guinness- "A Free People's Suicide")
Os Guinness on the results of atheism: “The framers clearly granted freedom of conscience to atheists along with believers of all sorts. But they were far less sanguine, particularly John Adams, about the possibility of a republic of atheists, because atheism doesn’t have the inspiration for virtue. It doesn’t have the content to tell you what virtue is, and it doesn’t have the sanctions, such as *** if people are not virtuous.”
When I post here, I work hard at keeping an irenic spirit and blessing friends with very diverse views. May I please ask all of us - conservative and progressive, religious and secular, politically-active and those with antibodies to politics - to pray, think and work toward some sanity concerning the growing information totalitarianism that we are watching? The issue is well beyond demonizing or lionizing particular leaders. Liberty of conscience/religion is the "first freedom" (Os Guinness) with assemby, press and redress as the practical expressions. I am concerned with abuse of power. I am also concerned that we learn civil discourse and critical thinking skills that will forge a bestter future instead of the polemics that create idoelogical "armed camps." My progressive friends, the fact that I stand for life and marriage does not make me a bigoted oppressor. My conservative friends, every person in our land desrves access to health care (yes we can do it better) and we should in President Eisenhower ...

MY SUNDAY AT AN ATHEISTIC CHURCH!month I stumbled upon an article about an atheistic “church service” in London. I didn’t even read the whole thing before I decided I had to go. The Sunday Assembly, as the group is called, meets once a month at The Nave in North London for “anybody searching for a sense of community, to meet and ‘turn good intentions into action.’” It is, all things considered, an atheistic church. Yes. A church for atheists. This morning I woke up, sacrificed hearing Os Guinness speak at my own church, and ventured down to Islington with my wife who is used to being dragged to peculiar things like this by now. We showed up 40 minutes early, but weren’t the first ones there. In typical British fashion, we all politely “queued up” as we waited for the doors to open. The press was there catching interviews. (They also recorded the entire service along with the attendees to a point that it made it uncomfortable). In fact, I’ll probably end up in The Guardian or The Inde ...

From the founding of the early American colonies to contemporary trends in media and university life, Aikman offers an excellent introduction to a range of vital issues that have helped spawn today's culture wars."--Thomas S.

The secret of seeking is not our human ascent to God, but in God's decent to us. We start out searching, but we end up being discovered. We think we are looking for something; we realize we are found by Someone. What brings us home is not our discovery of the way home but the call of the Father who has been waiting there for us all along, whose presence makes home home - Os Guinness
Os Guinness correctly sees America sinking into "soft despotism," but his proposals for restoring its civic health don't go deep enough.
"We are rapidly reaching the point in Western consumer societies where people confuse freedom with choice, as they are dazzled daily by an ever-expanding array of external choices in consumer goods and lifestyle options. But the pursuit of freedom has led to a surfeit of choices and a scarcity of meaning and value—a point at which choice itself, rather than the content of any choice, has become the heart of freedom. The result is that modern people value choice rather than good choice." - Os Guinness 'A Free People's Suicide' I highly recommend this book to those engaged and concerned with our culture, politics and institutions. A must read for those who want to know what was ingenious in our founding and how we have struggled to sustain the freedom that is at the core of who we are as Americans.

"Evangelicalism today in America is basking in the sunlight of ominously hollow success. Evangelical industries of television and radio and publishing and music recordings, as well as hundreds of growing megachurches and some public figures and political movements, give outward impressions of vitality and strength. But David Wells and Os Guinness and others have warned of the hollowing out of evangelicalism from within." - John Piper, A tribute to Jonathan Edwards

Os Guinness, author of The Call, describes the great artist Picasso, who fell into this trap. "'When a man knows how to do something,' Pablo Picasso told a friend, 'he ceases being a man when he stops doing it.' The result was a driven man. Picasso's gift, once idolized, held him in thrall. Every empty canvass was an affront to his creativity. Like an addict, he made work his source of satisfaction only to find himself dissatisfied. 'I have only one thought: work,' Picasso said toward the end of his life, when neither his family nor his friends could help him relax." [Os Guiness, The Call (Nashville, Tennessee: Word Publishing, 1998), 242.]
Os Guinness (InterVarsity, 224 pp., paperback)At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, a woman asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” To which Franklin replied: “A Republic, if you can keep it.”1That question and Franklin’s reply cut to the ...

thanks Matt Allen-i liked this so much, i stole it from your wall:) i had something interesting/encouraging to read from both you and your wife Adrienne Brand Allen today... "Freedom requires Virtue. Virtue requires Faith. Faith requires Freedom... Real human freedom, as Pope JPII said, is not the license to do as you like, but rather the ability to become what you ought to be." - Os Guinness

Dr. Os Guinness explains that Truth is at the heart of Christianity, freedom & humanity.
Thanks for coverage of our Evening Conversation! read it here:
Election day is on the horizon. There are millions (a little hyperbole) of opinions floating around, but which one is true. However, the postmodern thinker says, there is no truth. I will not “worry about those.” For those who believe there is truth, but unsure about which opinion is true, I recall the various opinions at Mt. Carmel. “So Ahab sent for all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together on Mount Carmel. And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word” (1 Kings 18:21). The people did not know who to believe. Such is the dilemma in our country today. I would like to share a couple of paragraphs from chapter 9 “Stealthy Deception” in my book Creeping Conspiracies. In early Greek philosophy, sophism was a specious argument used to deceive someone. Sophism was the basis for deception; stealth was the practice of soph ...

Thank you to all who joined us at the last night for our Evening Conversation with Os Guinness!
A call to be ‘knights of faith’. and human beings ablaze with a desire for God! Long yes, but well worth the read. Excerpt out of ‘The Call’. Os Guinness. Chapter 10.Our utmost for His Highest Still. Human beings consume and are consumed by many things- food, drink, possessions, ambition love, to name a few. Many of these things only shrink & debase us. But in the great person and with the great cause, the consuming force may become a magnificent obsession & heroic destiny. Winston Churchill himself was consumed by an extraordinary sense of providence & personal destiny.-leading a nation & championing the cause of freedom against a vile tyranny at overwhelming odds. He made a statement “I felt as if I were walking with destiny, and that all my past life had been but a preparation for this hour and for this trial.” We know the outcome! For some people the grand passion is art, music, or literature; for yet others the love of a man or a woman. But search as you will, there is no higher of more u ...
