We’re in a season right now where some people give words like “doctrine” and “theology” a bad name because of an inability to differentiate between what’s essential and what Christians have historically disagreed on. At the same time, some people downplay doctrine altogether, wanting us just to focus on what we do or how we live as Christians. They think we need to adapt and accommodate Christianity to better fit the times.

My new book The Thrill of Orthodoxy (available October 25) turns the tables on those who believe Christian teaching is narrow and outdated. We’re going back to the historic creeds. We’re looking at what orthodoxy is and why it matters, and why we should have confidence in it. We’re looking at heresies and errors that are not broad and inclusive but narrow and boring.

Christian theology is an adventure, and I want to reawaken your sense of wonder!

Why Join the Launch Team?

Loyal readers, you can make a big difference in how this book launches.

By joining the launch team, you get access to a digital version of the book a month before anyone else does, giving you the chance to read it ahead of time. You also get access to a private Facebook group where you can interact with me and other team members, discussing (maybe even debating!) some of the concepts in the book. You’ll also be invited to a Zoom call in October, where I’ll be hosting a conversation about the book.

Here’s what launch team members agree to: you preorder the book and agree to leave a review during the book’s launch. That’s it.

Here’s why that matters.

By preordering the book, you help retailers take note of the demand for this book, and this increases the likelihood that they’ll push and promote it more visibly, so that others discover it too.

By agreeing to leave a review on Amazon or other retailer sites within the first 10 days of the book’s launch, you help others discover the book and make them more likely to give it a try. These reviews are vitally important for a book launching well.

I hope you sign up to join us and enjoy being part of the team!
