Have America's founding principles become culture war casualties? While the world watches, we're failing to live up to our own ideals. Calling both left and right to renounce ugly political polarization, Guinness makes an impassioned plea for a civil public square---one that neither privileges a particular faith nor excludes religion in the name of "tolerance." 224 pages, hardcover from HarperOne.

Date:April 5, 2008
Another fine book by Os Guinness.This is an excellent book that should be read by all the members of congress,legislators,public officials and of course all christians.Os Guinness offers us wise counsel for engaging the "public square". It is a good assessment of the current cultural climate. At a time when civil public discourse is at it's lowest point,Guinness offers a balanced approach for restoring virtue and civility in public discourse.He draws on our country's founding principles to present his arguments for civility.We will do well to heed this clarion call.
