Holy Subversion: Allegiance to Christ in an Age of Rivals

Product Description

Details:

"Trevin Wax faithfully sounds the call for world-changing, Christ-exalting Christian practice. By unmasking contemporary 'Caesars,' he reveals real dangers and points to pitfalls of which many believers are completely unaware. This book serves as a helpful reminder and competent guide to draw out the implications of true allegiance to Jesus Christ." ―R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"How should God's American people put the lordship of Jesus Christ on display in their lives? Wax's searching answer is biblical, basic, businesslike, and blunt."―J. I. Packer, Late Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College

"Trevin Wax passionately tackles some of the most dangerous idols in our culture, and, unfortunately, in our own lives. Especially relevant now is his reminder to us of the way money can capture us and force us into submission. Not only in days of economic stress, but also in those of economic prosperity, we must be aware of money's alluring trap and learn how to turn this resource into something that may be used for the kingdom. With judicious insights and clear writing on a number of issues, Wax challenges us to live subversively against the powers of this world."―Johnny Hunt, Former President, The Southern Baptist Convention; Senior Vice President of Evangelism and Leadership, North American Mission Board

"Christianity is all about paradox. We lose our lives to gain them. We find life in crucifixion. We serve in order to reign. In his book, Holy Subversion, Trevin Wax takes up the question of how to be both a rebel―against the false authorities of this time―while simultaneously being submissive―to the divine authority of the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. This book is a helpful warning against both nihilism and cynicism."―Russell Moore, President, The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention

"Simple yet succinct, Holy Subversion exposes the idols of modernity and provides the biblical arsenal needed for their complete destruction. Trevin Wax provides medicine for the heart in this short, powerful study. Read it and be blessed."―Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Trevin Wax provides good advice on how to turn away from the idols of success, money, leisure, sex, and power."―Marvin Olasky, Editor in Chief, WORLD Magazine
