    I have read many Christian books for women and not one has been as life changing as Idol Lies. One thing that sets Dee's book apart from the others is her honest humility in sharing her own struggles. From page one, you are drawn in to her personal journey. She introduces women with struggles we can all relate to. But most importantly, with empathy and grounded biblical insight, she guides readers to the Truth that sets us free. Idol Lies aids the reader in identifying the hidden idols that we have become so comfortable with we don't even recognize as idols. She helps us see how these idols are not the "friends" to our soul we think they are, but are hindrances to the life we were created for. Dee points readers to the path of freedom and living life for our One True Love. This book shook up my heart and challenged my thinking, and ultimately filled me with hope and a deeper love for Christ.

    I visit women in jail and sethimg that continually strikes me is the fact that the only that is different between their sin and mine is that their sin is illegal. All sin is deadly and all sin separates us from God. This book has such a clear explanation of how we turn our desires ... even good desires into idols and those idols lead us imt Po great sin and bondage.

    As a pastor's wife who has recently been through some very difficult times in the ministry, God brought me to a pilot study with Dee Brestin for Idol Lies. How thankful I am! God has opened my eyes to hidden sins and desires and is freeing me from their grip. Idol Lies is an excellent study which touches on heart issues common for every woman. If you are ready for God to do a deep work of transformation in you, then Idol Lies is a must read. Your eyes will be lifted to focus on Christ and your heart will begin seeking refuge in Him alone.

    "Idol Lies" changed my life.

    I took part in Dee's online test study of " Idol Lies".

    I have known the Lord for over twenty years and I was going through a rough season in my life with an overwhelming amount of stress and felt like I was drowning. The vibrant intimacy I once had with God grew shallow. What compounded this was the lack of deep, Biblical community in my life-the masks were on and it was hard to be vulnerable. I was participating in many other studies, but most were lighter and were focused on us rather than on Christ-you can knock depression, lose weight, etc. if you just apply God's word to your life. I came away 'ready to walk in faith' but ultimately ended up in the same hole.

    I heard Dee Brestin was a deeper Bible teacher, so I went to her blog looking for a Bible Study I could purchase. I found she has an online Bible Study so I began to participate as Dee began her test study on "Idol Lies".

    At first I didn't think idolatry was an issue with me because I am a believer but as soon as Dee admitted she struggled with idolatry in her relationships I thought, "could this be what is hindering me from that deep intimacy with Him?"

    As we delved into "Idol Lies" the Lord began quickening my heart in His Word. (Dee really delves deeply into Scripture). Over time I saw His Holiness, His Power, and His deep love for me in ways I hadn't before. I saw in depth what He gave up to go to the cross for me so that I could be His. I soon realized I had believed the lie that God wasn't enough and I was running to food for comfort instead of running to God-I held up a worthless 'thing' as more ultimate than Him, the One who gave up everything for me. This compelled me to turn. Through Dee's book, over time, God began to break down the walls between us, and He rescued me from the downward spiral I was on. My intimacy with God has been restored.

    This book truly is life changing. I have read it three times and each time it doesn't get old! I find new layers of things I didn't see before. Once I pick it up, I can't stop reading it- it is that kind of book! I highly recommend this book and the study that comes with it-do the study!! I have seen lives truly change. I found in doing this study with other women that as our intimacy deepened with God, the masks came off and our fellowship grew deeper as well.

    This book and study opened my eyes to my heart idols, and God used it in a powerful way in my life. Currently I am doing the study again in my home with 5 other ladies. I do have one suggestion to the editor. (based on the feedback of every other lady I know who has read it, including myself) Perhaps put the 5 days of homework questions directly after each chapter, rather than all lumped together at the end of the book. That would be more clear and helpful as far as navigating the book. Nearly everyone, including myself, had some confusion about that.
