Subtitled: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope That Matters.
Counterfeit Gods is a slim little volume that must have been taken from a sermon series by Timothy Keller, pastor of New York City’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church. I’ve had the pleasure of hearing Pastor Keller speak on a number of occasions, as the church I’ve gone to for the past 15 years is in the same family as Redeemer.
While I didn’t feel like I learned anything astonishingly new from this book, I was, as expected, taken by Keller’s ability to present deep truths in plain language and with relevant real-world applications. Good stuff!
