Publisher Description

In gods at war, Kyle Idleman, bestselling author of not a fan, helps every believer recognize there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives. What keeps us from truly following Jesus is that our hearts are pursuing something or someone else.  While these pursuits may not be the “graven images” of old, they are in fact modern day idols.  Behind the sin you’re struggling with, the discouragement you’re dealing with, the lack of purpose you’re living with is a false god that is winning the war for your heart.

According to Idleman, idolatry isn’t an issue—it is the issue.

By asking insightful questions, Idleman reveals which false gods each of us are allowing on the throne of our lives.  What do you sacrifice for?  What makes you mad?  What do you worry about? Whose applause do you long for?  We’re all wired for worship, but we often end up valuing and honoring the idols of money, sex, food, romance, success and many others that keep us from the intimate relationship with God that we desire.

Using true, powerful and honest testimonies of those who have struggled in each area, gods at war illustrates a clear path away from the heartache of our 21st century idolatry back to the heart of God – enabling us to truly be completely committed followers of Jesus.

Jesus is Lord

I appreciate being reminded that God is a Jealous God and loves me like that.

Great truth for reflection

After finishing "Not a Fan" this felt like a great follow up and I was not disappointed. Many of us have given ourselves to Christ, with all the right intentions, but we don't realize the residue of idols of our past that continue to cling on. This book will help you see that and reveal that only in Christ will these idols find the rightful place and meaning...an excellent read, an important reflection!

Great Book

I've read Kyle's Not a Fan as well as this book and They both are very good reads. Great, sound, biblical principles made in both books. However Gods at War is my favorite of the two. Looking forward to doing the small group study at my church.
