If you have been wondering what you should do with the extra $10 in your wallet, I can tell you exactly how to spend it: Pre-order Trevin Wax’s Holy Subversion: Allegiance to Christ in an Age of Rivals to be released by Crossway in January 2010.
Trevin’s book is an exposition of the supremacy of Christ in the face of the many idols of our time, and comes highly recommended by Danny Akin, Al Mohler, Johnny Hunt, David Dockery, and others. In Danny Akin’s words, “Simple and 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.”
A final thought: Come January, when the book has been published, and everybody is raving about it and you haven’t read it, don’t blame me or the guys at BtT. You’ve been put on notice.
