THE LATEST FROM 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.

Os Guinness is the author of more than thirty books, including The Call,
Renaissance, Fool’s Talk, Impossible People, and Last Call for Liberty. He has been a visiting
fellow at the Brookings Institution and a senior fellow at the EastWest Institute.
A frequent speaker and prominent social critic, he has addressed audiences
worldwide. A passionate advocate of freedom of religion and conscience for people
of all faiths and none, he was the lead drafter for both the Williamsburg Charter
and the Global Charter of Conscience.

“Os Guinness offers up a splendid reflection on the nature and conception of time and its
importance in the self-understanding of a Christian seeking to be faithful in the present era.
Guinness calls us to faithful and fearless living, with a sense of humility as we walk

TIMELESS
MAPPING WISDOM FROM JOHN STOTT
HOLY GROUND

Who is Jesus Christ? While Jesus and his teach-


ing continue to hold appeal, many people question
the plausibility or relevance of the Christian faith.
Is it reasonable to believe that Jesus was truly
divine? If so, what does it mean for us?

John Stott’s accessible, classic book examines the


historical facts on which Christianity stands.
With pastoral guidance, Stott presents a biblical
portrait of Christ, then considers what it looks
like to become and live as a Christian.

For more than sixty years, Basic Christianity has


been a landmark resource that has helped
millions understand the gospel. With updated
language, study questions, and a new foreword by

and a Barthian theologian, helping us understand both the formation
and the ongoing significance of one of America’s great theologians.

THE VICTORY OF THE CROSS


James R. Payton Jr.
How can Christians claim that the death of Jesus Christ on the cross
is a victory? Eastern Orthodoxy has made its own contributions to
the belief in salvation through Christ, but its expressions sometimes
sound unfamiliar to Western branches of the church. James Payton
explores the Orthodox doctrine of salvation, helping Christians of
all traditions listen to Orthodox brothers and sisters.

SEEKING CHURCH
Missiological Engagements
Darren T. Duerksen and William A. Dyrness
New expressions of church, including so-called “insider” movements,
are proliferating among non-Christian religious communities world-
wide. Drawing on the growing social-scientific work on emergent
theory, Duerksen and Dyrness explore how all Christian movements
have been and are engaged in a “reverse hermeneutic,” where the gospel
is read and interpreted through existing cultural and religious norms.
