Been using the blog to suggest books to people who hear the Sunday message and wrestle with the various types of dirt in the Parable of the Soils. This week dirt was filled with thorns, representing those things in our lives that compete with God as the object of our allegiance and worship. The Bible calls these things idols.
Tim Keller’s book Counterfeit Gods: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope that Matters will help anyone (which is pretty much everyone) who struggles with issues of idolatry. Very much worth the read!
