5.0 out of 5 stars Keller gently but firmly dismantles all your precious idols, June 25 2010

(TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
This book is accessible to a large audience, as intended, I think, but anybody whose read Keller will know that doesn't mean this is simplistic and dumbed-down - far from it. Keller systematically convinces us that idolatry is a modern problem, then proceeds to show us all the obvious and not-so-obvious ways we succumb to it - the pursuit of sex, money and power is one thing but what about the hidden idols that lie behind those manic pursuits. Keller all the while firmly points us to God as the only fulfillment of all our deepest needs. Keller uses the Bible quite heavily here, but not in a tiresome and predictable way - he goes through stories such as Jonah and Nebuchadnezzar to illustrate his points. If you haven't been exposed to these stories in some time you'll be surprised at what these stories all contain. Jonah, in particular, is a story which needs to be re-read as the modern conception of what it's all about is off considerably.

Oh, yeah, this book isn't terribly long either, so what's your excuse?

This is the first time i bought a book written by T. Keller. He is a well informed, good thinker, and logical theologian. Excellent book. Praise the Lord for the life of this man.
