your heart is a battlefield. 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. 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 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 twenty-first century idolatry back to the heart of God – enabling us to truly be completely committed followers of Jesus. “Kyle will challenge even the most obedient Christians to re-look at their relationship with Christ.” — Mike Huckabee, Former Governor of Arkansas “Only pick up this book if you are weary of losing your battles. You won’t finish it and be the same person.” — Ann Voskamp, author of the New York Times bestseller One Thousand Gifts “Don’t just read this book – read it now! In these pages, liberation awaits.” — Lee Strobel, author of The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith Download and start listening now!
