The Pastors Forum for Hawaii Pacific Baptist Lead Pastors is back. Join us on Wednesday, March 8, 2023 at noon Hawaii time via Zoom. Trevin Wax is our next guest. He will share insights from his new book, The Thrill of Orthodoxy: Rediscovering the Adventure of Christian Faith (Intervarsity Press, 2022).
In The Thrill of Orthodoxy, Trevin Wax turns the tables on those who believe Christian teaching is narrow and outdated. Returning to the church’s creeds, he explains what orthodoxy is and why we can have proper confidence in it and lays out common ways we can stray from it. By showing how heresies are always actually narrower than orthodoxy—taking one aspect of the truth and wielding it as a weapon against others—Wax beckons us away from the broad road that ultimately proves bland and boring, and toward the straight and narrow path, where true adventure can be found.

“I hope to reawaken in you an appreciation for biblical and historic Christianity, so that you will be steady and fruitful in the turbulent times to come. This is the adventure: to bind our hearts to something ancient and enduring, with faith that the faith will outlast all fads and fashions. We’re not digging in, but digging down to the bedrock of our faith, so we can stand. The church marches on, not because we are faithful in every respect—we haven’t been, and we won’t be—but because Jesus himself is faithful. He promised to build his church, and the gates of hell will not prevail. And so, shaking off our spiritual slumber, we join hands with millions of others across space and time, saying with boldness and confidence, ‘This I believe.'” – Trevin Wax
