    In Counterfeit Gods, Keller applies his trademark approach to show us how a proper understanding of the Bible reveals the unvarnished truth about societal ideals and our own hearts. This powerful message will cement Keller's reputation as a critical thinker and pastor, and comes at a crucial time - for both the faithful and the skeptical.

    Kenneth says: "Great book!"
    "Excellent, informative, and convicting"

    Story
    What did you love best about Counterfeit Gods?

    The distinction of fashioning gods out of ostensibly good things like the opposite sex, children or work was a total mind-shifter for me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Counterfeit Gods?

    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.


    What three words best describe Tom Parks’s performance?

    lucid, clear, forthright


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not entirely. I needed time to digest certain elements.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
