Two thousand years ago, the most developed nations in the world worshipped idols - gods of wood and stone. Today we may laugh at their ignorance, but the modern manifestations of idolatry are no less foolish and just as harmful to our wellbeing. Timothy Keller looks at the issue of idolatry throughout the Bible, from the worship of actual idols in the Old Testament to the love of money by the rich young ruler in Jesus' parable. Using these classic stories, Keller cuts through our dependence on the glittering false gods of money, sex and power to uncover the path towards trust in the real ultimate - God.--Back cover.
