Absolutely awesome eye opener. In order to get the most out of this book, you must be completely open to what the author is saying and be honest with yourself in what and where you truly put your priorities and what is most important in your life. If you are open to true change, are willing to take an honest look at your life, and want to grow closer to God, this book is a must read.
What an eye opener! I didn't realize that some of the things I was living for - my family, my spouse, even the achievements in my day could morph into an idol(s) in my life. This book is a great way to see just where my heart is and what I am serving - God or something else. A must read for those serious about growing in their christian maturity and relationship with God.
An excellent book that looks at the different gods competing for our hearts and minds. It's easy to read and yet challenging us to grow and have a better relationship with God. It really is a convicting book when it comes to all the wordly things taking up a lot of our time and room in our hearts.
Pastor Idleman dives right into the topic in Chapter 1 and just makes it more and more relevant as the chapters go on. He doesn't slowly build to a single point, but throughout writes in a practical way about where we allow competition for God in our lives. He writes with insights of a much older man. Our group bought the Combat Journal and the DVD and is really taking the teaching to heart.
