Waiting on Wednesday: gods at war

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine which lets bloggers spotlight upcoming releases that they are looking forward to.

I know it's not the typical genre of book that is posted about on WOW, but I am really looking forward to the new book from Kyle Idleman: Gods at War: Defeating the Idols That Battle for Your Soul

It's expected release date is February 19, 2013. I remember when Kyle preached the "gods at war" sermon series several years ago and I remember it being powerful and convicting. And I found his sermon series turned book, Not a Fan, to be very well written and convicting as well.

"In Gods at War, bestselling author Kyle Idleman helps every believer recognize there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives. We're all wired for worship, but we often end up valuing and honoring the false gods of comfort, money, sex, pleasure, legalism, family, the perfect body, and success, and that keeps us from the true, intimate relationship with God that we desire. According to Idleman, idolatry isn't an issue---it is the issue. By asking insightful questions, Idleman reveals which gods each of us are allowing on the throne. What do you sacrifice for? What makes you mad? What do you worry about? Whose applause do you long for? Then, using true, powerful and honest testimonies of those who have struggled in each area, Gods at War illustrates a clear path away from the heartache of our 21st century idolatry back to the heart of God."
