Product Description

Idol worship may seem like ancient history, but the modern-day version---from family and finances to soccer and day-care---can compete with God's rightful place in our lives. Minter explores what happens when good desires become objects of worship---and shows you how to exchange everyday gods for the one true God.

When the Bible warns believers against worshipping false gods, the commandment seems way too much like a no brainer. Of course, you don’t bow down to some ugly gold statue. Got it. But in No Other Gods, singer/songwriter, author and speaker Kelly Minter speaks about the idols that hit a little closer to home: a loving home, financial security, the man of your dreams. In a friendly, conversational style that hits you between the eyes without needlessly talking down to readers, Minter provides a provocative reminder of what’s really important in God’s economy. And while the message is targeted to a female demo, guys could find plenty of takeaway value here, too.

Minter—worship leader, songwriter and author of the popular Living Room series of Bible study guides—offers readers surprising depth and breadth in this book on modern-day idols. It would have been easy to focus on surface idols such as materialism, beauty and media, and Minter does touch on those things, but she digs deeper into the false gods we really worship, using examples from the Bible throughout. “Simply put, it’s anything and everything that takes the place of God in my life,” she explains. She first establishes that God is personal, desiring a relationship with each of his children, then explains why we are so drawn to idolatry instead of that relationship. She describes core issues such as “being unloved or perpetually un-chosen,” the pain of not having enough (insert love or children or significance) and the lie that something other than God can meet deep needs. There are chapters on what idols look like, the pitfalls of legalism and the difficult issue of surrender. Minter does a fair amount of soul-searching, all with a healthy dose of humor that will have readers laughing while examining their hearts. Although it’s marketed to women, this book will have a wide appeal to all Christian readers. (Apr.)Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
