In our thirst for significance we, like the Teacher, give our lives---our time, talents, strength, heart---to anything we think will give us worth and purpose: Power. Relationships. Money. Pleasure. Work. But worshiping these idols has a high cost---and still doesn't bring the fulfillment we long for.
In Breaking the Idols of Your Heart, Dan Allender and Tremper Longman illuminate for us the Teacher's warnings and, after all his activities, his final radiant conclusion: Meaning and purpose come only when God is truly the center of our life and the object of our hope. Using a compelling fictional narrative at the start of each chapter to encourage reflection on our own life and the lives of family and friends, the authors lead us through Ecclesiastes to help us recognize and exchange cheap pursuits for the only One worth pursuing.
Ecclesiastes is not an easy book to read, because transferring our worship from money, power and fame to God is not an easy road to travel. But as the Teacher discovered and wrote down for us, it leads to one conclusion: life lived abundantly, in freedom, hope, purpose, meaning.

Fnicia5 Stars Out Of 5August 3, 2010FniciaThis book is a-m-a-z-i-n-g! After reading the book of Ecclesiastes a few months ago, I got a sense that I discovered a precious treasure without fully understanding it. I picked up this book in the christian library without knowing anything about the authors nor the subject of the book, only intrigued by the title. Reading this book is a blessing and I recommended it to everyone I talk to. God bless!
