God's battle for our hearts

Julian Hardyman

ISBN: 9781844744183
192 pages, Paperback
Published: 19/02/2010

When we hear the word 'idol' we tend to think of football players or pop stars. We may even remember that some people's religion meant worshipping idols: little or large statues that represented a god.

But what has this to do with us today?

Julian Hardyman is increasingly convinced that idolatry – putting anything else in the place that is rightfully God's – explains us and our problems:

Why we get so angry about traffic jams.
What drives us to work so hard our marriage hits the rocks.
What lies behind that compulsion to look at pornography.

He has also found that God is engaged in a war to win back our hearts.
