Is it harder for you to change and grow as a Christian than it should be? Do you wonder what is holding you back? Have you ever considered that it might be idolatry?
Using real-life stories and examples, Brad Bigney shows us how the idols we might not even recognize can still have devastating effects in our lives. In this transparent, honest book, he helps us to identify our idols, understand how they lead us to commit treason against the gospel—and finally repent of them and root them out forever by turning to the only One who can fill our every need.
“Can help all of us take an honest look at the inner workings of our hearts. Let these important words guide you as you continue to mature in your relationship with Jesus.”

Thumbs up for idols down!
Incredible book on discovering your idols, confessing them and repenting of them! I am getting a copy for my pastor/accountability partner! So much truth contained for every Christ follower to consider and live on!
If you wanna grow this book is great! It will hurt, it will challenge you, but it will make you grow. If you want to read a feel good book, this is not it. It's not shallow, it's deep and makes you examine your heart and motives. It will change you if you take it seriously and it will make you understand why you respond to lifes issues the way you do. Great book.
