Kevin Belmonte

The book is called "Fool's Talk," written by the Oxford-educated cultural scholar and author, Os Guinness. And if Twain and Chesterton were writers who marshaled wit and paradox in commending wisdom, Guinness richly mines many a classic vein of wisdom, and wit, to help Christians in our time discern what it means to be winsome, and compelling, in commending faith.
