Publisher's Description

Deep down, every woman longs for security, happiness, and love. Yet most women settle for weak substitutes like control, materialism, sex, and food. In Idol Lies, popular Bible teacher Dee Brestin explores the hidden idols that destroy a woman’s heart. Using biblical examples as well as her own personal experiences and those of other women, she helps readers move past their cravings to understand—and receive—what they’re really hungering for: an intimate, secure, life-changing intimacy with the True Lover of a woman’s soul. When Jesus is actively and practically fulfilling a woman’s deepest needs day after day, hour by hour, not only does freedom await, but the gifts of sex, acceptance, material things, and ambition become good gifts rather than dream destroyers.

    I visit women in jail and sethimg that continually strikes me is the fact that the only that is different between their sin and mine is that their sin is illegal. All sin is deadly and all sin separates us from God. This book has such a clear explanation of how we turn our desires ... even good desires into idols and those idols lead us imt Po great sin and bondage.

    Facing the Truth About Our Deepest Desires is the subtitle to the book. Author Dee Brestin has written another great book to help women in their relationship with the Lord and themselves.

    Do you long to be loved? Do you feel unloved? Reading this book will show you that those desires are good but need to be directed at the Lord and not to things on this earth. The author stresses that trying to find your happiness by filling your life with things of the earth will only make the longing stronger. By direction your longings to the Lord, He will fulfill those needs with His love.

    I gave this book 4/5 stars for a couple reasons. Where I did like the writing and found the author to be very open I just did not feel any connection. I felt more preached to then talked to. I do however, think the book is helpful and would recommend it to a friend who was having issues of feeling unloved or alone.

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    I have read many Christian books for women and not one has been as life changing as Idol Lies. One thing that sets Dee's book apart from the others is her honest humility in sharing her own struggles. From page one, you are drawn in to her personal journey. She introduces women with struggles we can all relate to. But most importantly, with empathy and grounded biblical insight, she guides readers to the Truth that sets us free. Idol Lies aids the reader in identifying the hidden idols that we have become so comfortable with we don't even recognize as idols. She helps us see how these idols are not the "friends" to our soul we think they are, but are hindrances to the life we were created for. Dee points readers to the path of freedom and living life for our One True Love. This book shook up my heart and challenged my thinking, and ultimately filled me with hope and a deeper love for Christ.

    This book promises to be ground breaking for those wishing to walk closely with God. It has been my great blessing to study this subject with Dee on her blog. What I came to understand is that idolatry is an insidious wedge between myself and God. It blocked intimacy because I depended on idols for what I should have been receiving from God. They ruled my life until Dee helped me to see them. As we worked through the scriptures I began to see how I had believed the lies promised by idols and been left bankrupt by them. Fear is another result of idolatry because idols will always let us down, they have taught us that, but Jesus never fails. My life has been changed by greater intimacy with God and freedom from fear.

    As a pastor's wife who has recently been through some very difficult times in the ministry, God brought me to a pilot study with Dee Brestin for Idol Lies. How thankful I am! God has opened my eyes to hidden sins and desires and is freeing me from their grip. Idol Lies is an excellent study which touches on heart issues common for every woman. If you are ready for God to do a deep work of transformation in you, then Idol Lies is a must read. Your eyes will be lifted to focus on Christ and your heart will begin seeking refuge in Him alone.
