Os Guinness speaking at Global Faith Forum. After the “American century” there are some pressing questions for us at the verge of another century:

2. Which faith will replace Marxism in China?
3. Will the West recover its roots?

Most twittered Os quote at #ggf2010 – “The right to believe anything doesn’t mean that anything people believe is right”.
