Image Idols Of The Heart

IdolsOfTheHeart Idols of the Heart by Elyse Fitzpatrick


"Demonstrates how 'false gods' generate the garden-variety sins of irritability, self-pity, escapism, and anxiety, as well as anger, despair, addictions, and panic. Fitzpatrick show how Jesus Christ retakes our lives from these idols, setting up his reign over our attention, loyalty, and affections." --David Powlison

"With great clarity and intriguing biblical illustrations, Fitzpatrick explains how 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. I highly recommend this book." --Martha Peace

"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." --Dr. Ed Bulkley
