ABOUT THE SHOW
Every week, The Van Maren Show will try to get a handle on what is really going on in our culture today. It can be difficult to find news sources and storytellers that accurately reflect a Christian, socially conservative, pro-life, pro-family worldview. Join me on Wednesdays as we head to the front lines of the culture war.

In This Episode
Os Guinness joins Jonathon Van Maren on this week’s episode of The Van Maren Show. Guinness is an author and commentator who has written over 30 books that have had a profound impact on the American political conversation. And yes, he is the great, great, great grandson of Arthur Guinness, the famous Dublin Brewer.
Van Maren and Guinness begin their discussion with talking about the notion of freedom, specifically in America. Guinness outlines the three challenges that freedom has, stating that the American Founders knew full-well these challenges. The first is winning freedom (The Revolution in 1776). The second is ordering it or giving it political framework (The Constitution in 1787). Finally, the third is sustaining it… Which has been the challenge of centuries. Guinness says the best way to achieve sustainable freedom is through, what he calls, the Golden Triangle of Freedom. This states that Freedom requires Virtue, Virtue requires Faith, and Faith then requires Freedom.
Van Maren’s conversation with Os Guinness is an uplifting one while dealing with the current state of American politics, freedom, and culture. Guinness has wisdom from the decades of writing, research, and experience that needs to be shared far and wide. Be sure to listen to the episode and share with your friends and family.
