TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO, THE MOST DEVELOPED NATIONS IN THE WORLD WORSHIPPED IDOLS, GODS OF WOOD AND STONE. Today we may laugh at their ignorance, but the modern manifestations of idolatry are no less foolish and just as harmful to our wellbeing.
Culturally transforming and biblically grounded, COUNTERFEIT GODS is a powerful book by New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller, pondering the persistent temptation to worship what can only disappoint, and with a vital message for today’s current climate of financial and social difficulty.
TIMOTHY KELLER was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and Westminster Theological Seminary. He was pastor of West Hopewell Presbyterian Church, Virginia, for nine years before founding Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, which he started in 1989 with his wife, Kathy, and three young sons.
Keller’s first book, The Reason for God, was a New York Times bestseller and saw him referred to as a ‘C.S. Lewis for the twenty-first century’ by Newsweek.
