This is our time: everyday myths in light of the gospel
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.

|display_description||Kane leads a double life. By day, he pumps iron, running a fitness center, where jocks and Cougar flock for the burn and the 'tude. By night, it's something else entirely that gets pumped, as Kane swaps sweats for Armani to cater to an exclusive clientele, willing to pay well to indulge their special interests and tastes. His double life isn't a problem until his conniving ex tightens the financial screws. Finding and retaining suitable companions for his after-dark clients isn't easy. David Black's pole dancing performance at a friend's club hints that he might hit all the bullet points on Kane's list of requirements, in a way that could mean something other than "just business." David is out of work and out of options, so when he's offered the choice of starvation or performing both on and off the stage, it's a no-brainer. Kane's offer of a position with the escort service is as attractive as the man himself, and David agrees to a trial period involving certain conditions. He quickly finds that he's out of his depth. Confronted with unanticipated roadblocks, one thing is clear... neither man is taking no for an answer.|
