Publisher's Summary

In Gods at War, Kyle Idleman, best-selling author of Not a Fan, helps every believer recognize that there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives. What keeps us from truly following Jesus is that our hearts are pursuing something or someone else. While these pursuits may not be the “graven images” of old, they are in fact modern day idols. Behind the sin you’re struggling with, the discouragement you’re dealing with, the lack of purpose you’re living with is a false god that is winning the war for your heart.
According to Idleman, idolatry isn’t an issue - it is the issue.
By asking insightful questions, Idleman reveals which false gods each of us are allowing on the throne of our lives. What do you sacrifice for? What makes you mad? What do you worry about? Whose applause do you long for? We’re all wired for worship, but we often end up valuing and honoring the idols of money, sex, food, romance, success, and many others that keep us from the intimate relationship with God that we desire.
Using true, powerful and honest testimonies of those who have struggled in each area, Gods at War illustrates a clear path away from the heartache of our 21st century idolatry back to the heart of God - enabling us to truly be completely committed followers of Jesus.

One of the Best Books I have ever read ..

If you could sum up Gods at War in three words, what would they be?

If you want Jesus dead center if your life, this is a very important book. If you feel that things are out of control, this book has some very good advice. If you are a long time believer in Jesus, but things have got a bit stale, this book will show you some good reasons why.<br/><br/>The writing is clear (not too many big words :), the narration is excellent, easy on the ear. <br/><br/>No one book on our relationship with the Lord can stand by it self, except the Bible, but this book should be in your literary tool chest. .

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gods at War?

When I saw many of the Idols in my life
