Overview

When a defector crosses sides, he brings with him a report of a plot to undermine the Western Church. As the story unfolds, the memoranda intercepted from one spy to another reveal this plot to reduce the effectiveness of the Church by squeezing it into the mold of the modern world.

The Last Christian on Earth is an incisive and wide-ranging analysis of what has happened to bring about the decline of the Church in America and the West and an open and passionate plea for reformation and revival. Using the device of one spy writing memoranda to another on how to undermine the Church, Os Guinness helps us to see ourselves as others see us and to recognize what has really caused the damage. It is much more than a critique, and it does not finish pessimistically.

If you are saddened by the shallow and ineffectual state of the Church in America and the West and puzzled by what has caused such a sorry decline, you need to read this book slowly and on your knees. We are living in an urgent hour for all followers of Jesus in the West.

An excellent re-telling of the last days of Jesus' life on earth. The book is clearly written and moves at a pace that keeps the reader interested throughout. As an 84 year old I have read the stories of Jesus many times, but this one is vivid and accurate according to the New Testament accounts.
