Publisher's Summary

Success, true love, and the life you've always wanted. Many of us placed our faith in these things, believing they held the key to happiness, but with a sneaking suspicion they might not deliver.

The recent economic meltdown has cast a harsh new light on these pursuits. In a matter of months, fortunes, marriages, careers, and a secure retirement have disappeared for millions of people. No wonder so many of us feel lost, alone, disenchanted, and resentful.

But the truth is that we made lesser gods of these good things - gods that can't give us what we really need. There is only one God who can wholly satisfy our cravings - and now is the perfect time to meet him again, or for the first time.

The Bible tells us that the human heart is an "idol-factory," taking good things and making them into idols that drive us. 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.

    "Thought provoking!"

    I was able to recognize my own CFGs. It provoked me to take a closer look at the man in the mirror.

    "Religious sophisticated?"

    No matter. Don't know God at all? Great! This is the very rare book that can expose God in a way that this is a fine introduction. Also provides another serious angle from which to evaluate your own Christianity if honest. I loved this book.

    "Great spiritual read!"

    Very insightful book. Brings to light the subtleties of idols common within cultures and professed believers.

    "Great homily...after a 5 hour sermon"

    This book could have been so much better if the majority of it was focused on what the epilogue (finally) got to. I would have stopped listening an hour into it if I wasn't out of credits.

    "Powerfully Truthful"

    Counterfiet Gods is powerfully truthful. It is one the few books that have influenced my thinking about human identity, motivation and purpose. I am greatful for Dr. Keller's teaching.
