Overview

Success, money, 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. The recent economic 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 counterfeit 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 now is the perfect time to meet Him again, or for the first time. In Counterfeit Gods, Timothy Keller show how the Bible reveals the unvarnished truth about our faith and our hearts' desires.

    I Also Recommend:

    Keller Is On Point With This One!

    Once again, Keller tells it like it is for the American Christian, unpacking some cultural aspects and calling the American church to authentic godliness. I've already recommended it to key leaders around me, and passed on my own copy (I'll get it back).

    For anyone who feels bound by their anger, guilt, hurt or pain, I also recommend "When God Stopped Keeping Score." I thought that the book was just about forgiveness, I soon learned, it was about so much more than that. I was about how you should deal with friends, family and yourself and more importantly, how to keep these relationships strong when things go wrong.

    Having read it, I feel like a better person. Maybe because this book spoke to me and not down to me. I have read a lot of books that was written like I didn't know anything. What the author of "When God Stopped Keeping Score" does is talk to you like a friend. I needed that. You will understand why when you read it. Buy it here on BN.com

    Convicting

    If you want a book which will challenge the very fabric of your life, check out Keller's Counterfeit Gods. He hits at the core of who we are and those things which we cling to over and above Christ.
