Publisher Description

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.”

Quotes

  • “A refreshing dose of realism…definitely worth reading.”

    - Harold L. Myra, retired CEO and executive chair of Christianity Today
  • “Mingling puckish wit with probing judgements, [Muggeridge] goes to the heart of Western culture’s sickness. Always the graceful stylist, Muggeridge is informative, stimulating, and delightful to read.”

    - Paul Bechtel, Wheaton College

About the Author

Malcolm Muggeridge (1903–1990) was a world-renowned philosopher, humorist, newspaper editor, and university rector. He is best known to American audiences for his book Something Beautiful for God and for his frequent appearances on Firing Line. A tart-tongued agnostic, he was fascinated by the idea of faith and eventually converted to Catholicism. His enduring appeal is often compared to that of his compatriots G. K. Chesterton and C. S. Lewis.
