This was the Big Idea at my church. We've all read it and studied it on Sundays and in small group. The book is sort of repetitive. I agree with my husband who said we could have just watched the video series without reading the book. I learned a lot and appreciated the insights. ( )

"What if I told you that every sin you are struggling with, every discouragement you are dealing with, even the lack of purpose you're living with are because of idolatry?" (12)

With this statement, Kyle Idleman launches into a pointed, challenging, and needed assault on the idols in our lives. Idleman says that an idol is "anything that becomes the purpose or driving force of your life probably points back to idolatry of some kind" (26). He groups nine idols into three "temples": the temple of pleasure - addressing the god of food, the god of sex, and the god of entertainment; the temple of power - addressing the god of success, the god of money, and the god of achievement; and the temple of love - addressing the god of romance, the god of family, the god of me. The thoroughness with which Idleman dismantles the gods of culture leaves no stone unturned. Any reader of this book is likely to be skewered at multiple points.

My only qualm with this book is the obviously Arminian thought that shines through at points. Interestingly enough, I was leading a group of highschoolers through this book; they were the ones who identified (correctly) Idleman's theological presuppositions. Their theological instincts made me proud!

This book was a good read. I highly recommend it. It will challenge and lead many people to address sin in their lives. I know it did that for me. ( )

I would have liked to give this book 1 star.....but alas I cannot. It hit home to much. The idols in our lives that try to exalt themselves over God are numerous, at least in my own life. They are painfully made aware by reading this book. As Kyle says, most "in and among themselves" are not idols. They only become idols when they become too important.

Father I pray that you cast down anything in my life that exalts itself above YOU! ( )
