Read This Is Our Time: Everyday Myths in Light of the Gospel Online Free - 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 twenty-first-century American Life in order to help Christians understand the times. By analyzing our common beliefs and practices (smartphone habits, entertainment intake, and our views 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.

This book is the most relevant for our time that I have read in quite a while. Our youth group has just finished participating in a Discipleship Now weekend, and all I could think about is how badly our youth need this book. Christians everywhere need this book. The Church needs this book! Trevin...

Fantastic read. Wax has his finger on the pulse of Western Evangelicalism, and those of us who find themselves there would do well to consider his work. This book is a must-read for believers who wish to better exegete the culture around them. Myths are all around us, and Wax tactfully reveals ho...

One objective for a catechism is to be a response to the challenges of the day. This book acts like a catechism in that way. It gives a thoughtful counter to the many facets of he narrative of secularism that whirls around us...this water that we swim in.

Great gospel saturated book. Wax examines crucial myths that Christians believe that are not biblical and are not in keeping with the gospel. His writing is crisp, thoughtful, deeply researched and very needed in our church today. Highest recommendation

Here's why experiencing God's love matters for the fortifying of Christian faith and witness in our day. If you fail to get this truth deep down into your heart, if you fail to recognize God's unfailing, unchanging love for you no matter your circumstances, you will not be able to represent Him w...

I requested to review this book after I heard the author speak on the radio about it. I was so impressed with the logic and applicability of the book, I wanted a chance to read it and make it more known.
Just like the book of Hebrews points out that this tradition or that tradition in Judaism was...

There are timeless books and there are timely books. This one is timely, meaning though there are principles that can be gleaned in the future, it is very much about our time now in the mid-2010s.
I love that the book gave me a vocabulary to talk about the things I see in our culture that just do...

I feel like I have conversations with high school students and other people often where they are making assumptions about the way the world is and should be. Wax does a great job speaking to several of those assumed cultural narratives and ways the gospel is a better answer than the world gives....
