Trevin Wax is a regular Gospel Coalition columnist and a founding editor of The Gospel Project. He is also the the author of The Multi-Directional Leader, Rethink Your Self, This Is Our Time, and Gospel-Centered Teaching. Trevin is vice president of research and resource development at the North American Mission Board and a visiting professor at Cedarville University. He shared insights and answered questions about his most recent book, “The Thrill of Orthodoxy: Rediscovering the Adventure of Christian Faith.”
In The Thrill of Orthodoxy, Trevin turns the tables on those who believe Christian teaching is narrow and outdated. Returning to the church’s creeds, he explains what orthodoxy is, why we can have proper confidence in it, and lays out common ways we can stray from it.
By showing how heresies are always 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.
