Idols of the Heart
Idols of the Heart by Elyse Fitzpatrick
This book was written to help you identify the idols of your heart. Elyse explains that an idol of the heart is anything that you put before God. You can identify these idols by saying I will only be happy when this happens, or when I get this I will finally be happy. You can also know something is a sinful desire when you are willing to sin to achieve it.
This was an amazing book. I disagreed with some of the terminology used and I found that distracting, however it was just the terminology, I did agree with everything that was said and found it very biblically sound. Elyse Fitzpatrick is an amazing author and I would highly recommend any books that are written by her.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I bought this book off of Amazon after having it recommended to me by my pastor’s wife.
