Counterfeit Gods

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. No wonder we feel lost, alone, disenchanted, and resentful. 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.

In Counterfeit Gods, Timothy Keller shows how a proper understanding of the Bible reveals the unvarnished truth about societal ideals and our own hearts. This powerful message cements Keller's reputation as a critical thinker and pastor, and comes at a crucial time—for both the faithful and the skeptical.

"This book helps us see why and how God is the only one who can satisfy our need for happiness. But it’s so easy to fall into the trap of seeking happiness in someone or something else, which the Bible calls idolatry. Keller is the chief thinker and writer on this subject in our day. What he uncovers is very confronting."   Peter Kozushko
