  • This is a highly readable popular level book that explores how the Christian Church, while a pillar of progress and culture in the West, has ultimately been undermined by the modernity it initially created the gravedigger hypothesis Os Guinness devotes particular attention to the sociology of knowledge, a field of thought and analysis often neglected by evangelicals it seems ink is spilled on Christianity s relationship with hard science, rather than social science Guinness is liberal with the [...]


  • It took me a while to figure out if the concept behind this book is clever or just cheesy In the forward Guinness credits John le Carr s depictions of the grey world of intelligence as his inspiration and being a fan of le Carr myself, I took a sympathetic position It does make for an interesting way of presenting a mountain of otherwise pure sociological facts and theories Having grown up in a Christian family in a secular world I m familiar with the lamenting of decreasing influence of Christi [...]


  • I began reading this book, and then switched to skim it As much as I enjoy Mr Guinness work, this particular writing style was uncomfortable for me to read.


  • The reason I gave this three stars is that the language of the author and the sentence structuring is too complicated What complicates further is the third person character through whose voice the author sometimes speaks.The subject matter is quite important and the author is very qualified I ve heard his messages much clearer and this book did cut through for me.


  • This was a very good book although the format will turn some readers off It really ought to be read far than it is, especially by pastors and Christian educators I hope to summarize review it in the future




  • This is a book that is filled with useful and though provoking ideas and statements While I really like, and respect the author, this book was not pleasant reading The very nature of the book was a series of warnings and was rightly so, highly negative in tone Such a tone was completely justified, given the insight provided However, the book did relatively little to provide help or encouragement regarding how we can make a difference, and not get sucked into the dangers portrayed My favourite pa [...]


  • The Last Christian is a new 2010 version of the earlier The Gravedigger Files 1983 The book is written in a manner which will remind some of Lewis s The Screwtape Letters This works to allow the presentation of the author s thesis while avoiding what might otherwise amount to didactic overload This was a good move on the author s part and serves well his intent to identify and explain various aspects of the cultural subversion of the Church in the West I found most of the presentation to be spot [...]


  • This is a very thought provoking book Its layout is similar to The Screwtape Laters in that it consists of a series of memos written from an anti Christian perspective, and thus is designed to give Christians a glimpse into Satan s strategies I took a ton of notes from this book The first chapter states the book s basic premise that as the church has embraced the modern world, it has destroyed itself Following chapters analyze the processes of rationalization, secularization, privitization, plur [...]


  • Not surprised that I loved this one, since the earlier version of the work The Gravedigger Files was also an old favorite It s written along the style lines of C.S Lewis The Screwtape Letters but Guinness looks at big picture issues as well as issues on the level of the individual and he deals with believers and non believers alike of all stripes If you enjoy L Abri lectures or if you like to look at the consequences of ideas and their varied applications to real world situations in contemporary [...]


  • This book was a somewhat difficult read for me The complexity of writing from the viewpoint of the enemies of Christianity as well as some unfamiliar terminology that I had to learn as I went slowed down the reading The book, though, was worthwhile as the process opened up new perspectives on the state of the church and the pitfalls that threaten her.


  • Finding this hard to read.Quite abstract and a bit too hard to hold it all together I m sure there is a message in here but I m getting lost in the double negative delivery being the methods the enemy is using to destroy the church.Will persist to see if I can get through it.


  • This is written in the tradition of the Screwtape letters by CS Lewis Very perceptive and dark look at the state of the current western church Was challenged to rethink my understanding of what it means as a Christian to engage in the world while not succumbing to worldliness.




  • An interesting way to speak on a higher level, rather than specific critiques, about the church in America.



  • Really thought provoking I think this is a healthy critique for most aspects of modern Christianity and witness.
