Review of GODS AT WAR by Kyle Idleman

Rating: 5 out of 5

Human beings are designed to worship something. Worship is instinctive and unavoidable. We don't choose whether or not we worship, just the direction our worship is pointing. In his new book GODS AT WAR, Kyle Idleman explores this need to worship and the core cause of all of our sinfulness: idolatry.

Idolatry is worship of anything other than God, and it is the fountain from which all of our sin flows. Idleman presents God as a jealous God who wants only the best for us, which is himself. He looks at the gods of pleasure, power,  and love, and shows how they fail to satisfy the God-longing in our hearts.

What we devote our lives to is an issue of the heart, and GODS AT WAR encourages believers to turn their hearts from idols to the only One who can satisfy us.
