Gods at War Student Edition: The battle for your heart that will define your life

gods at War by Kyle Idleman was a thought provoking book. I am a Christian so I found reading about the concept of idolatry to be most likely true in everyone's life at times, and a serious issue that we don't always realize we face or commit.

The way this book was written kept my attention, and I really liked how Kyle Idleman used passages from the Bible, explained and elaborated on them, then put them in context for the twenty first century. I also liked how he talked about how the different "gods" ( as in god of achievement) have evolved over time.

There were many sentences from this book that would make great quotes, and I really liked some of the references and comparisons.

One of my favorite things that Kyle Idleman mentioned in this book was that the heart is the center of a person and that everything that we do should reflect our heart and therefore God (because he should be at the center of our heart and lives).

I will be honest and say that I did not read about one of the "gods" because it was not something that is in my reading comfort/appropriate zone. Though I do understand why it was in the book, I just didn't want to read that much about it.

Will you choose to let God win the war of your heart, and give him glory and control over our lives? I know I have!

I received an ARC of this book for free from the Zondervan Z Street Team in exchange for an honest review.
