Lovely Day for a Guinness
Justin Taylor has a wonderful little interview of Os Guinness, where he peppers him with insightful questions regarding on old book, The Gravedigger File (in anticipation for his forthcoming book The Last Christian on Earth). For those not familiar with Guinness, he is the great-great-great grandson of Arthur Guinness, brewer and founder of Guinness beer. He is a keen analyzer of evangelicalism and a necessary read for developing both a Christian worldview and philosophy of ministry. He is well-travelled, well thought out, cogent, and prescient in his thinking. 1983’s Gravedigger put forth the idea that Christianity was the major force behind modernization and capitalism in the West and what Christianity created it also uncritically adopted, thereby undermining Christianity. Undoubtedly true.
