Absolutely! I'm hoping to use it in our young adults group at church!
It wasn't until this book that I truly believed that, like most American Christians, I had two major idols in my life that prevent me from having the relationship with Christ he (and I) desire. This author and pastor obviously has a ton of experience working with people in identifying idols; he only just scratched the surface on the subject of common idols in American culture - and gave pointers for ID-ing other possible culprits in our lives. And then he actually gave suggestions on how we might replace these idols with our one true God.
There were certainly moments of laughter - the author has a way of telling stories anyone can relate to (not to mention the reader knew exactly how to read the comic points). However, I definitely found myself crying when I realized I had idols in my life that God so desperately wants me to destroy. Additionally, I listen to my books primarily in the car and found myself wishing I could stop in the middle of rush hour traffic to write things down.
