With insights from Pascal, Dostoevsky, and Solzhenitsyn, Malcolm Muggeridge offers reason to rejoice despite the crumbling of the world around us.
Malcolm Muggeridge contends that Christendom is quite different from Christianity. Christ said that his kingdom is not of this world; Christendom, on the other hand, is of this world and, like every other human creation, is subject to decay and eventual desolation. In this fiery book, Muggeridge explores the prevailing downfall of Christendom, indicating some of the contributing factors to its collapse. However, contrary to our natural impulse to mourn this, Muggeridge makes a cogent and convincing argument that now is a time to rejoice, “for it is precisely when every earthly hope has been explored and found wanting…that Christ’s hand reaches out sure and firm.”
