Synopsis

Christians are too often guilty of pledging their allegiance tothe influential principalities and powers of this age rather thanto Christ alone. In Holy Subversion, Trevin Wax challengessuch behavior by urging a return to the subversive lifestyle of theearliest Christians. Their proclamation and demonstration that"Jesus is Lord" directly opposed the Caesar worship of theirday.

Today, Christians in the West must choose between Jesus and our"Caesars": self, success, money, leisure, sex, power. What would itlook like, asks Wax, if today's church reclaimed the communal,subversive nature of the gospel, intentionally undermining allcontenders for our devotion? How would the message that "Jesus isLord" change our thinking about our jobs, our families, and ourchurch participation? Here this gifted pastor-theologian offershelp in taking our faith public, dethroning modern-day Caesars,honoring the Lordship of Christ, and understanding the church asthe ultimate counterculture-an embodiment of Christ's supremacyover all.
