9780875521985: Idols of the Heart: Learning to Long for God Alone

This edition is now out of print. There is an updated and revised edition that was released in 2016. The ISBN for the new edition is: 978-1-62995-210-9.

Have you ever seen a Buddhist temple or walked through a museum exhibit filled with statues of gods? We tend to think of idols as something outside us. They're something foreign, something we take pictures of in far-off temples of museums, something we wonder at.

But God's Word tells us that idolatry is something more than temples, incense, and food offerings. idolatry has to do with love—our love for God, our love for others, and our love for the world. When we look at idolatry in these ways, we understand that we're not so different from those people we observe in temples so far away.

Elyse Fitzpatrick helps us to examine the idols of our hearts and, ultimately, to pursue godly lives free from the habitual sins that trap us. When our affections are turned to Jesus Christ, he can once again reign in our hearts.

About the Author:

Elyse Fitzpatrick counsels with the Institute for Biblical Counseling and Discipleship and is a frequent retreat and conference speaker. Fitzpatrick coauthored Women Helping Women, a 1998 Gold Medallion finalist; Love to Eat, Hate to Eat; Overcoming Fear, Worry, and Anxiety; and Uncommon Vessels: A Program for Developing Godly Eating Habits. She and her husband, Philip, have three adult children and two grandchildren.

Review:

"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

Descripción P & R Publishing, 2001. Softbound. Estado de conservación: NEW. Dimensions: 137 x 215 x 14 mmWeight: 0.277 kilosPages: 240 Many people desire to live godly lives but feel trapped in habitual sins. They trip over the same bad habit, embarrassing weakness, or sinful slavery they wanted to be free of years ago. Idols of the Heart reveals that idolatry lies at the heart of every besetting sin. If you think of idols as stone statues in far-off lands, think again. Idols are the desires, longings, and expectations we worship instead of the true God. Fitzpatrick helps uncover hidden idols by moving us to ask: What do I long for so much that my heart demands, "Give me this, or else I'll die?" What must I have for my life to be meaningful and happy? Do I love God whole-heartedly or are there other loves in my heart that clamor for my attention? Fitzpatrick shares the hope found in God's desire to have his children live free of idols, and his commitment to free them by his sanctifying power.[Publisher]table of contents 1.
