Episode 166: Revolutionary Faith and the Future of Freedom: Os Guinness

This week's Candid Conversation is with a man who is known as a quiet voice on behalf of faith, freedom, truth, reason, and civility.  Jonathan welcomes Os Guinness to the program. Os is an author, social critic, and great-great-great grandson of Arthur Guinness, the Dublin brewer. He has written or edited more than 30 books that offer valuable insight into the cultural, political, and social contexts in which we all live. 

Os Guinness  was born in China in World War II where his parents were medical missionaries. He witnessed the climax of the Chinese revolution in 1949 and was expelled with many other foreigners in 1951.  He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of London and his D.Phil in the social sciences from Oriel College, Oxford.  He now resides in the United States.

Together, Jonathan and Os discuss Scripture and Os' most recent book The Magna Carta of Humanity. Join them as they go around the globe and talk about what Os sees as an American crisis of polarization. Then, dive into the most recent change overseas, a new King in England and what “defender of the Faith” now means to the monarchy. Os also tells us a bit about his incredible family lineage from Christian brewers to pastors to a Christian author.
