Bestselling author of Not a Fan, Kyle Idleman, shares the powerful next step in becoming a completely committed follower of Jesus: recognizing and letting God defeat the gods at war within us---the false gods battling to rule our lives.
In Gods at War, bestselling author Kyle Idleman helps every believer recognize there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives. We're all wired for worship, but we often end up valuing and honoring the false gods of comfort, money, sex, pleasure, legalism, family, the perfect body, and success, and that keeps us from the true, intimate relationship with God that we desire. According to Idleman, idolatry isn't an issue---it is the issue. By asking insightful questions, Idleman reveals which gods each of us are allowing on the throne. What do you sacrifice for? What makes you mad? What do you worry about? Whose applause do you long for? Then, 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.Publishers Description
