Publisher's Description

Do you feel discouraged, even defeated, in your battle against habitual sin? Are you dismayed or surprised by the situations that bring out your fear, anger, or distress? Elyse Fitzpatrick delves into the heart of the problem: deep down, we’re all idol-worshippers who put our loves, desires, and expectations in God’s place—and then suffer the consequences of our misplaced affections. Yet God loves his people and can use even our messy lives and struggles for his glory. Fitzpatrick shows us how to better search and know our hearts, long for our gracious Savior, and resist and crush our false gods. Includes questions for further thought. Revised edition.

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.
Elyse Fitzpatrick is one of the best authors you could read today if you want help truly loving Jesus and recognizing the deception of your own sinful heart that so easily leads you away from Him and back to your own patterns of self-destructive sin. Her book, ‘Idols of the Heart’ was one of the first to help us recognize the sin beneath the sin that so often goes undetected and leaves us confused. I’m thrilled that after fifteen years a second edition of this excellent work is now available. Elyse loves Jesus, she loves grace, and she loves helping people experience the freedom of truly loving Jesus with all their heart, and mind, and soul. This book can help you discover what may be keeping you from experiencing the fullness of His love.
