The distinction of fashioning gods out of ostensibly good things like the opposite sex, children or work was a total mind-shifter for me.
I also saw how one can fashion idols out of the opposite sex and even work to such a degree that one is paralysed with approach-avoidance, for fear of failing, condemnation or rejection -- all just seeking the "opinions of men" (and women) quite frankly -- a life-long pattern for me, and one that all but instantly dissolved upon seeing how absurd and ungodly it is.
lucid, clear, forthright
Not entirely. I needed time to digest certain elements.
As good as Mr. Parks is, he isn't Tim Keller. It is usually better when the author reads from their book, as certain phrases and meanings the author intended can be walked over. More glaringly, Mr. Keller is such a renowned and talented orator, it seemed odd he didn't read from his own book, if not a tad disappointing, hence four (3 1/2 if I could) stars out of five for that reason alone.
