About this Event

How can we partner with God to “seize the day”?

Nine out of 10 young people in a recent survey claimed that life is meaningless. English author and cultural critic Os Guinness understands the struggles facing our culture headed down a path of disillusionment, nihilism, and despair.

In this webinar, Os talks about his new book Carpe Diem Redeemed: Seizing the Day, Discerning the Times and reminds us that the antidote to the cultural malaise wreaking havoc on our mental health isn’t “more happiness,” it’s more purpose.

Bio:

Os Guinness (DPhil, Oxford) is the author or editor of more than thirty books, including Impossible People, Fool's Talk, Renaissance, The Global Public Square, and A Free People's Suicide. A frequent speaker and prominent social critic, he has addressed audiences worldwide from the British House of Commons to the U.S. Congress to the St. Petersburg Parliament. He is a senior fellow at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics and was the founder of the Trinity Forum.

Born in China to missionary parents, he is the great-great-great-grandson of Arthur Guinness, the Dublin brewer. In 1951 he returned to England where he was educated and served as a freelance reporter with the BBC. Since coming to the U.S. in 1984, he has been a guest scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Studies and a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution. He was the lead drafter of the Williamsburg Charter, celebrating the First Amendment, and has also been senior fellow at the EastWest Institute in New York, where he drafted the Charter for Religious Freedom.

Guinness has had a lifelong passion to make sense of our extraordinary modern world and to stand between the worlds of scholarship and ordinary life, helping each to understand the other—particularly when advanced modern life touches on the profound issues of faith. He lives with his wife, Jenny, in McLean, Virginia, near Washington, D.C.
