In one of the world's great ironies, the Christian faith contributed decisively to the rise of the modern world, but has been undermined decisively by the modern world it helped to create. The Christian faith has become its own gravedigger. In the 25 years since philosopher and social critic Os Guinness first published The Gravedigger Files, much has happened: the fall of the Soviet Union, the rise of the computer age, the reemergence of China and India, the rise of Islamic terrorism, and the worldwide revitalization and politicization of religion.

Lays out the Christian's battle in the 21st century. All written in a series of communiques from the enemy "Directorate. It has the same feel of The Screwtape Letters, and a fascinating idea of the way of the "Third Fool" as being the way to break through the present-day irrelevance, bickering, factionalism, marketing, and paranoia that are strangling the lifeblood out of the Church in America.

Lays out the Christian's battle in the 21st century. Secularism being the newest arrow in our enemies quiver. The Lord will win the war. Hallelujah!

Nicely done survey of the impact of philosophy on the contemporary thinking of many post-modern theologians and the underpinning of many church bodies' departure from the orthodox "one, holy, catholic and apostolic" Christian faith.

I purchased this book for my father as he had one years ago and loaned it to someone who did not return it to him. Although my dad loves the book, I was very disappointed in the condition.

To my mind, Os Guinness's 1983 work, The Gravedigger File: Papers on the Subversion of the Modern Church, shows that the crisis of contemporary Christianity is actually much worse than deemed by most US evangelicals as it offers one of the best diagnoses of the self-inflicted "décadence" of Christian culture, esp. US evangelicalism. Nevertheless, I tend to disagree with his prognosis and proposed solutions --which are still too apologetic, conservative, and evangelical (in the American sense of the term --quite different from the Reformed or Lutheran in Europe), esp. in the way it tends to hastily dismiss Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, and Max Weber's excellent insights into the correlated problems of modernity, rationalization, and secularization. Still, a very helpful resource to make sense of what Francis Schaeffer dubbed "the great evangelical disaster" in America and subsequent emergence of a New Right among Republicans and neocons.

SARAND
Guinness here put me on guard as to how much my faith is modified by my culture rather than the other way around. Written somewhat like CS Lewis' The Screwtape Letters, Guinness gives us subversive letters and communiqués from the enemy Directorate. It is a great conspiracy story-and way too true to real life (the life of the church).

Os Guinness, in this work, presents the Church in America and the problems that beset it. All written in a series of communiques from the enemy "Directorate." It has the same feel of The Screwtape Letters, and a fascinating idea of the way of the "Third Fool" as being the way to break through the present-day irrelevance, bickering, factionalism, marketing, and paranoia that are strangling the lifeblood out of the Church in America. In light of the events of 9/11/01, these suggestions become even more vital, as the Church must get serious about proving and providing a steady, Rock-like foundation amidst the fear and doubt.
