Publisher's Summary

Uncertain. Confused. Overwhelmed.

Many Christians feel bombarded by the messages they hear and the trends they see in our rapidly changing world.

How can we resist being conformed to the pattern of this world? What will faithfulness to Christ look like in these tumultuous times? How can we be true to the gospel in a world where myths and false visions of the world so often prevail?

In This is Our Time, Trevin Wax provides snapshots of 21st-century American life in order to help Christians understand the times. By analyzing our common beliefs and practices (smartphone habits, entertainment intake, our view of shopping, sex, marriage, politics, and life's purpose), Trevin helps us see through the myths of society to the hope of the gospel.

As faithful witnesses to Christ, Trevin writes, we must identify the longing behind society's most cherished myths (what is good, true, beautiful), expose the lie at the heart of these myths (what is false and damaging), and show how the gospel tells a better story - one that exposes the lie but satisfies the deeper longing.

One of the best books of this generation!

this book is so applicable in so helpful to contemporary Christians that I would recommend it to any and all who wants to know what it means to be a Christian in this generation.

Wax strikes and incredible balance between the polarizing views within the church and how we should keep our gaze straight ahead on Jesus.

Enjoyed the book

Enjoyed the new application ideas with the old Gospel message. Great perspectives on the myths in western philosophy that conflict with Christ centered living.

timely

I most grew personally for the beginning section on social media. the rest of the book did not say anything I hadn't read elsewhere, but did a nice job of bringing to together in a way that coherently deals with the word of my generation, that is, millennials.

Eye opening

some of these myths were known and accounted for however there were a few I was completely blind about. This book was well ordered and kept my attention throughout.
