Acclaimed author and social critic Dr. Os Guinness was the special guest speaker at the Christian Union New York City Forum. (52:02)




Can we really change the world? In a culture increasingly secular, Christians alternate between passive pessimism and aggressive triumphalism. The 21st century church finds itself challenged with living faithfully and redemptively in a world increasingly at odds with faith. Os Guinness speaks eloquently on the compelling future and enduring power of faith.
