"Counterfeit Gods" by Timothy Keller

I am consistently impressed with the Biblically-profound, life-related wisdom of Tim Keller (pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, and author of excellent books like "The Reason for God" and "The Prodigal God").

Here is a preview excerpt from his soon to be released book, "Counterfeit Gods -- The Empty Promises of Money, Sex and Power, and the Only Hope that Matters."

Even just this preview is well worth reading.

This is great--and convicting--stuff. I most appreciated this line: "The very things upon which these people were building all their happiness turned to dust in their hands because they had built all their happiness
upon them."

Hey Mike,

I agree...and I'm looking forward to reading the book. Keller is one of those writers who brings profound Biblical/theological reflection and life-related application together in particularly insightful ways.
