Publisher's Description

Many people desire to live godly lives but feel trapped in habitual sins. This book reveals that idolatry lies at the heart of every besetting sin.

Author Bio

Elyse Fitzpatrick counsels with the Institute for Biblical Counseling and Discipleship and is a frequent retreat and conference speaker. Fitzpatrick coauthored Women Helping Women, a 1998 Gold Medallion finalist; Love to Eat, Hate to Eat; Overcoming Fear, Worry, and Anxiety; and Uncommon Vessels: A Program for Developing Godly Eating Habits. She and her husband, Philip, have three adult children and two grandchildren.

Editorial Reviews

The first and greatest commandment says that our relationship with God is a 'heart, soul, mind, and might' matter. God-substitutes, both tangible and figurative, are similarly matters of heart, soul, mind, and might. Such 'false gods' generate the garden-variety sins of irritability, self-pity, escapism, and anxiety, as well as the more extreme sins of anger, despair, addictions, and panic.
Elyse Fitzpatrick has a very high view of God and this book reflects that view. With great clarity and intriguing biblical illustrations, Elyse explains how the idols in our hearts compete with our affections for God. In a gentle way, she tells you how by God's grace to turn from your idols to a whole-hearted love for God.
If you are struggling with desires, addictions, and harmful behaviors that seem too strong to overcome, perhaps you are worshipping an idol of the heart. Fitzpatrick explains what those idols might be and how to deal with them in a biblical way. Idols of the Heart is not just another self-help manual.

    Eylise Fitzpatrick's book, Idols of the Heart, to be so direct at a problem that seems to raise its head among many, including Christians. The book is an easy read and its directness brings out the areas to watch for in our own lives that could become idol factories to coin a phrase from John Calvin. The hope to live free from idolatry is clear in this work. It is a must read.

    This book is fantastic, an excellent reminder how idols of today polute our thinking our actions and our soul. We are no different than the Isralites. This book is well written and based on scripture. I highly recommend it.

    I am about halfway through this book, and I am amazed at how the Holy Spirit is using the truths of this book to work in my heart for God's glory. Every chapter goes deeper and deeper into the issues of idols of the heart..and really teaches the subtle ways those idols hide there until they are uncovered and crushed. I am thanking God for leading me to this book.
