You only live once-if then. 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 strong contrast to both Eastern and secularist views of time, he reorients our very notion of history, not as cyclical nor as meaningless, but as linear and purposeful. 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. Thus 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.

"As a man in midlife, I am often reminded that like a piece of fruit or a loaf of bread, I, too, have an expiration date. With this awareness comes searching questions such as, '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.

"Most of us feel instinctively that we should seize the day but is the day worth seizing and should it be grabbed so unreservedly? Os Guinness is a wise and thorough guide to the deep issues surrounding this ancient maxim and helps us gain a clearer perspective on what it means to live life to the fullest." - Steve Turner, journalist, author, and poet.

"As an artist, I'm perpetually seeking inspiration to fuel my desire to make a difference in the world. Few thinkers fire me up in that regard more than Os Guinness. Carpe Diem Redeemed is no exception." - Max McLean, actor and theater director.

"Oozing wisdom, this is a book that I suspect will get deep under the skin of readers, inspiring them for years. Os Guinness helps us amid our busy-bored culture to think hard about the time we have. If we do that, he shows the rewards are immense: we can live meaningfully and with unassailable hope." - Michael Reeves, president, Union School of Theology, UK.

"In Carpe Diem Redeemed, Os Guinness offers up a splendid reflection on the nature and conception of time and its importance in the self-understanding of a Christian seeking to be faithful in the present era. 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.
