Publisher's Summary

A unique take on explaining idolatry, particularly in our contemporary culture of numerous hidden idols.
The uniqueness of this book comes in the metaphor of sipping saltwater. Our idols promise us a certain level of satisfaction; they fail to quench our thirst; they leave us thirstier than we were before drinking them; and we are left with a devastating hangover (i.e. the consequences of sin) in the end. Ultimately, we must spit them out and drink Christ's living water, the only drink that will ever truly satisfy us.
This book enables readers to identify their own source of saltwater, and how to quench their thirst by drinking Jesus' living water.

Encouraging book

I recently listened to the audio version Sipping Saltwater. I found it encouraging and theologically sound. Not very preachy and down to earth. It had a good balance between the author's personal story and examples from others. The author teaches to look at things as a gift from God and not to idolize things that seem good to drink on the surface (like saltwater) but would harm you in the end. Especially refreshing to me is the author's acknowledging on many issues you can go to one extreme or the other and both are sinful. Like you can over-work or be too lazy, you can not care about your body, or on the other hand worry too much about your health. The true path to righteousness is to drink from the Living Water that only Jesus can give and find our proper relationship to ourselves and to the world around us through Him. Audible narrator Adam Verner was easy to listen to.
