Product Description

There may be no wooden or golden idols in your home, such as the ancient Israelites struggled with, but chances are, there are significant idols in your heart. These idols can look like normal, everyday concerns about security, financial stability, desire for attention or affection, but can easily become the ugly reality of anxiety, greed, and seeking approval of man, rather than God.

In Gods at War, Kyle Idleman addresses the issue of idolatry in the lives of believers by asking insightful questions that will help you determine which false gods are striving to sit on the throne of your heart. By sharing true and powerful testomonies of those who have struggled with the idols of money, sex, success, food and romance, Idleman clears away the cultural baggage of the 21st century to expose these gods for what they are--rivals to our unhindered devotion to Christ. Discover the freedom that awaits you when you allow the true God to reside unchallenged in your heart and life.

Publisher's 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.

    Pastor Idleman dives right into the topic in Chapter 1 and just makes it more and more relevant as the chapters go on. He doesn't slowly build to a single point, but throughout writes in a practical way about where we allow competition for God in our lives. He writes with insights of a much older man. Our group bought the Combat Journal and the DVD and is really taking the teaching to heart.

    This book will touch your mind, heart, and soul. It made me do an honest evaluation or examination of my life in the area of priorities. Recommend using it as a small group study or reference to expand on a sermon message. I was convicted in the Temple of Pleasure, The God of Entertainment, and The God of Achievement.

Q: Are there scripture references in Gods at War? re: Gods at WarAre there any scriptural references in this book? Is the entire book made up of stories (examples) of ways people "worship other gods". The stories are very thought provoking and I may buy the book, but just wondered how I might use it in a bible study.

A:

Yes, there are scripture references in the book. It is divided into 13 sections, so could be used for a 13-week study, but does not have any study questions in the book. There is an accompanying DVD study (WW296760) and a Journal (WW296009) designed for use with the study.
