  • No God But God: Breaking With the Idols of Our Age
There is one God. There is no god but God. And there is no rest for any people who rely on any god but God. The evangelical movement is in deep disarray. Many doubt it can be defined; some question whether it has a future. But the authors of this book forcefully declare otherwise. Beginning with a trumpet call for revival and reformation, they confront the heart of evangelical captivity - the idols in our churches and our hearts. Modern tools and insights taken to excess - from politics, psychology, marketing, and management - have become points of false reliance and substitutes for God. No God But God is an urgent reminder for all evangelicals who sorrow over our condition. Temptation to idolatry is everyone's problem, and often the worst temptations come from the best gifts. In order to let God be God, Christians must worship and love God alone.

  • Unspeakable: Facing up to Evil in an Age of Genocide and Terror
Author and speaker Os Guinness confronts our inability to understand evil – let alone respond to it effectively – by providing both a lexicon and a strategy for finding a way forward. Since 9/11, much public discussion has centered on the destructiveness of extremist religion. Guinness provocatively argues that this is far from an accurate picture and too easy an explanation. In this expansive exploration of both the causes of modern evil and solutions for the future, he faces our tragic recent past and our disturbing present with courageous honesty. In order to live an “examined life”, Guinness writes, we must come to terms with our beliefs regarding evil and ultimately join the fight against it.

Is our sense of individual uniqueness backed by a guarantee, or are we only dust in the wind? …Long Journey Home is written for those who are asking enduring questions like these.” – Os Guinness

  • Fit Bodies, Fat Minds: Why Evangelicals Don’t Think and What to do About It
Anti-intellectualism has become the scandal of evangelicalism. Over the course of two hundred years, it has gradually become part and parcel of our evangelical identity. Yet today the failure to love God with our minds as well as our hearts is not only sin – it’s a crippling cultural handicap in an age when ideas have greater consequences than ever. Os Guinness traces the retreat of the evangelical mind and the dumbing down of evangelicalism through popular culture. But this book goes beyond mere analysis. It is a strong call for reformation of yet another place where evangelicalism is not evangelical enough.

  • Steering Through Chaos: Vice and Virtue in an Age of Moral Confusion
What kind of person do you want to be? What kind of society do you want to live in? The past century has seen horrifying acts of evil – millions tortured and murdered – as well as astonishing deeds of courage and compassion. Examples of evil and good are all around us, yet many people wonder whether there are any ethical standards upon which we can build our lives. Is anything truly right or wrong? To answer this question, Os Guinness and the Trinity Forum reach back through the Western tradition to the seven deadly vices, as well as the seven virtues of Jesus’ Beatitudes. Steering Through Chaos offers reflections from some of the finest thinkers of the past 2,500 years on the deepest struggles of the human heart.

  • Prophetic Untimeliness: A Challenge to the Idol of Relevance

Never have Christians tried to be so relevant. But never have Christians ended up so irrelevant. How can this be? The problem, says Os Guinness, is that our views of relevance and our efforts to redefine ourselves are captive to the seductions and pressures of our modern clock culture. Ironically, we end up as neither relevant nor faithful. And in the process we are in danger of losing not only our identity but our authority, our significance, and even our very soul.
Prophetic Untimeliness is a hard-hitting critique written with deep love for the church. It offers constructive suggestions for living with integrity in the midst of modern pressures and explores how to be truly relevant without being trivial or trendy. Inspired by C. S. Lewis, Guinness outlines a creative approach-îresistance thinkingî-through which the pursuit of relevance is balanced by the disturbing truths of the gospel. Only by such prophetic untimeliness can we be faithful to Christ and speak with integrity and wisdom in a world that is hungry for some truly good news.
