Free Stuff Fridays (InterVarsity Press)

Free Stuff Fridays

This week the blog and the giveaway has been sponsored by InterVarsity Press. They will be giving away five copies of the new book Carpe Diem Redeemed: Seizing the Day, Discerning the Times by Os Guinness.

How do we live with consequence in our modern world?

Life is short, and it can be as easily wasted as lived to the full. In the midst of our harried modern world, how do we make the most of life and the time we have?

In these fast and superficial times, Os Guinness calls us to consequential living in his new book Carpe Diem Redeemed. In the Judeo-Christian tradition, time and history are meaningful, and human beings have agency to live with freedom and consequence in partnership with God. Because of this, we can seek to serve God’s purpose for our generation, read the times, and discern our call for this moment in history. Our time on earth has significance. Live rightly, discern the times, and redeem the day.

What’s it all for? Is there meaning to anything that I do, since it will one day all be forgotten? What does it mean to live well in light of such realities?’ In characteristic fashion, Os Guinness not only explores these searching questions but offers satisfying, proven answers to them. If you are asking similar questions—or even if you’re not—I can’t recommend this book to you highly enough. —Scott Sauls, author of Befriend

Guinness calls us to faithful and fearless living, with a sense of humility as we walk before God and endeavor to serve his purposes in our generation. —Trevin Wax, author of This Is Our Time
