About this product
- DescriptionNew York Times bestselling author of The Reason for God and The Songs of Jesusand nationally rewned minister Timothy Keller exposes the error of making good things ultimate in this book, and shows readers a new path toward a hope that lasts.Success, true love, and the life you ve always wanted. Many of us placed our faith in these things, believing they held the key to happiness, but with a sneaking suspicion they might t deliver. The recent ecomic meltdown has cast a harsh new light on these pursuits. In a matter of months, fortunes, marriages, careers, and a secure retirement have disappeared for millions of people. No wonder so many of us feel lost, alone, disenchanted, and resentful. But the truth is that we made lesser gods of these good things gods that can t give us what we really need. There is only one God who can wholly satisfy our cravings and w is the perfect time to meet him again, or for the first time. The Bible tells us that the human heart is an idol-factory, taking good things and making them into idols that drive us. In Counterfeit Gods, Keller applies his trademark approach to show us how a proper understanding of the Bible reveals the unvarnished truth about societal ideals and our own hearts. This powerful message will cement Keller s reputation as a critical thinker and pastor, and comes at a crucial time for both the faithful and the skeptical.
