Os Guinness comes from a legendary Irish family which has historically been very strong in the Christian faith. Not only are they the family of the Guinness Brewery, one of the Guinness daughters married the missionary Hudson Taylor.
Mark Dever provides a fascinating interview Os Guinness about his life and work. Guinness talks about his years with Francis Schaeffer at L’Abri, and why Guinness never took a pastorate, even though one congregation asked him to. Os, who wrote a book titled, The Calling, explains why he never believed he was called to be a pastor, but rather was called to do what he does today which doesn’t have an easy job description. His work keeps him in the secular world, and his work is on a more popular level where he prefers it to remain.
Dever and Guinness also talk about the current state of the church, the decline of western society, and a great many other topics of interest.
