Tim Keller has a special gift for digging below the surface. He applies his unique gift in the pulpit and in many of his books.
In Counterfeit Gods, Dr. Keller tackles the thorny subject of idolatry. John Calvin put his finger on this pernicious sin in the 16th century when he said, “Every person is an idol factory.” Keller notes that anything can become an idol – especially good things. Keller adds, “Anything that becomes more important and non-negotiable to us than God becomes an enslaving idol.”
The idols of money, sex, and power are the central topics of this excellent volume. Keller notes, “The secret to change is to identify and dismantle the counterfeit gods of your heart.”
Counterfeit Gods is a convicting read and will no doubt encourage many believers to demolish their idols and cast their hope and trust in the living God.
