Release Date: January 01, 2002
Why do we desire to live godly lives yet often find ourselves trapped in habitual sin? Fitzpatrick reveals that idolatry lies at the heart of every besetting sin, and helps us uncover hidden idols in our lives by moving us to ask: Why does the Bible warn about the deceitfulness of sin? What must I have for my life to be meaningful and happy? Do I love God whole-heartedly or are there other loves in my heart that clamor for my attention? She offers readers the hope found in God's desire to have his children live free of idols, and his commitment to free them by his sanctifying power through Jesus Christ.
