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 womans heart. Using biblical examples as well as her own personal experiences and those of other women, she helps readers move past their cravings to understandand receivewhat theyre really hungering for: an intimate, secure, life-changing intimacy with the True Lover of a womans soul. When Jesus is actively and practically fulfilling a womans 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.
