In this timely and challenging book, New York pastor Timothy Keller looks at the issue of idolatry throughout the Bible - from the worship of actual idols in the Old Testament, to the idolatry of money by the rich young ruler when he was challenged by Jesus to give up all his wealth.
Using classic stories from the Bible Keller cuts through our dependence on the glittering false idols of money, sex and power to uncover the path towards trust in the real ultimate - God. Today's idols may look different from those of the Old Testament, but Keller argues that they are no less damaging.
Culturally transforming as well as biblically based, Counterfeit Gods is a powerful look at the temptation to worship what can only disappoint, and is a vital message in today's current climate of financial and social difficulty.

Essential listening for everyone
I will listen & relisten to this book until the truth of its warnings and insights stick. I was reminded to make my life's focus God's unparalleled act of love through Jesus' death, and to root out anything else in my life that matters to me more than that. A wonderful lifelong challenge which will only be possible through God's daily grace & mercy.

Identifying the idols in our lives is critical to understanding our suffering and disappointments as well as highlighting our relationship with God and our world. An excellent book
