A Day of Reckoning for the American Empire — and for Its Christians

By Stan Guthrie

Is the American empire over? Os Guinness seems to think so.

“I have a daily passionate sense that we are rather like Augustine in a transition period,” Guinness tells Christianity Today’s Mark Galli. “He had the privilege and weighty responsibility to live at the end of 800 years of Roman dominance; he gave an analysis and a vision of the church that was a bridge into the Dark Ages. So we’re seeing the division and decline of the West. We’re seeing the relative or maybe absolute decline of American power. And we’re seeing the deep captivity of the church in the Western world.”
