But the truth is that we made lesser gods of these good things - gods that can't give us what we really need. There is only one God who can wholly satisfy our cravings - and now is the perfect time to meet him again, or for the first time.
The Bible tells us that the human heart is an "idol-factory," taking good things and making them into idols that drive us. In Counterfeit Gods, Keller applies his trademark approach to show us how a proper understanding of the Bible reveals the unvarnished truth about societal ideals and our own hearts.
This powerful message will cement Keller's reputation as a critical thinker and pastor, and comes at a crucial time - for both the faithful and the skeptical.

This was the first book I have read by Timothy Keller, and I must say it was excellent. I have previously read and listened to books by C.S. Lewis, Ravi Zacharias, A.W. Tozer, and others and Keller matches both the theological consistency and excellent writing of all of them.
He tackles the topic of idols and counterfeit gods very well, and had me taking notes and writing down quotes quite often. It was an enjoyable book to listen to and would listen to it again.

Would you listen to Counterfeit Gods again? Why?
Absolutely. Tim Keller touches on so many truths that are so easily overlooked.
What other book might you compare Counterfeit Gods to and why?
I haven't read any other books on idolatry, but Tim Keller's other writings are equally as good.
What about Tom Parks’s performance did you like?
Easy to listen to
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When talking about how idols are not 'bad' things, and diving into what exactly idols are.
Any additional comments?
I wish I could make everyone listen or read to this book!!
