Southern Baptist blogger Trevin Wax is now also author Trevin Wax.  His first book, Holy Subversion, has received a warm reception and a number of key endorsements.  Here are just a few examples.

From J. I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College:

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.

From Russell D. Moore, Dean, School of Theology; Senior Vice President for Academic Administration; Associate Professor of Theology and Ethics, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary:

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.

From Tullian Tchividjian, Pastor, New City Church; Author; Grandson of Billy Graham:

With Francis Schaeffer-like instincts and insight, Trevin Wax aptly identifies the idols of our time and compellingly calls Christians to live against the world, for the world. He blazes a trustworthy trail for those who yearn to make a long-lasting difference in the world by showing that Christians make a difference by being different; they don’t make a difference by being the same.

Pastor Jim at Ex Libris is giving away a copy of the book. Jump on over to this blog post for details.  Hurry, though.  The drawing will be held at 5PM EST, this Friday, March 5th.
