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 civilisations, building cathedrals and universities, proclaiming God's goodness, beauty and truth through art and literature, science and medicine. In this hopeful appeal for cultural transformation, Guinness shares opportunities for Christians, on both local and global levels, to win back the West and to contribute constructively to the human future.
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.
"Renaissance balances realism about our precarious cultural situation with a hope grounded in the continuing sovereignty of God and his promises."
