There may be no wooden or golden idols in your home, such as the ancient Israelites struggled with, but chances are, there are significant idols in your heart. These idols can look like normal, everyday concerns about security, financial stability, desire for attention or affection, but can easily become the ugly reality of anxiety, greed, and seeking approval of man, rather than God.
In Gods at War, Kyle Idleman addresses the issue of idolatry in the lives of believers by asking insightful questions that will help you determine which false gods are striving to sit on the throne of your heart. By sharing true and powerful testomonies of those who have struggled with the idols of money, sex, success, food and romance, Idleman clears away the cultural baggage of the 21st century to expose these gods for what they are--rivals to our unhindered devotion to Christ. Discover the freedom that awaits you when you allow the true God to reside unchallenged in your heart and life.

In gods at war, Kyle Idleman, bestselling author of not a fan, helps every believer recognize there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives. What keeps us from truly following Jesus is that our hearts are pursuing something or someone else. While these pursuits may not be the graven images of old, they are in fact modern day idols. Behind the sin youre struggling with, the discouragement youre dealing with, the lack of purpose youre living with is a false god that is winning the war for your heart.
According to Idleman, idolatry isnt an issueit is the issue.
By asking insightful questions, Idleman reveals which false gods each of us are allowing on the throne of our lives. What do you sacrifice for? What makes you mad? What do you worry about? Whose applause do you long for? Were all wired for worship, but we often end up valuing and honoring the idols of money, sex, food, romance, success and many others that keep us from the intimate relationship with God that we desire.
Using true, powerful and honest testimonies of those who have struggled in each area, gods at war illustrates a clear path away from the heartache of our 21st century idolatry back to the heart of God enabling us to truly be completely committed followers of Jesus.
Kyle Idleman is the Teaching Pastor at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky, the fourth largest church in America. He is the author of the award-winning and best-selling book not a fan. He is also the presenter of several video curricula, including not a fan, H2O, and the newly released study gods at war.

Janet5 Stars Out Of 5gods at war: Defeating the Idols That Battle for Your HeartJanuary 16, 2015JanetAn 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.
Q: Are there scripture references in Gods at War? re: Gods at WarAre there any scriptural references in this book? Is the entire book made up of stories (examples) of ways people "worship other gods". The stories are very thought provoking and I may buy the book, but just wondered how I might use it in a bible study.
Yes, there are scripture references in the book. It is divided into 13 sections, so could be used for a 13-week study, but does not have any study questions in the book. There is an accompanying DVD study (WW296760) and a Journal (WW296009) designed for use with the study.
