Book Review : Counterfeit Gods

Some people are driven by money. Others, success. Some live for family, or for religion. Counterfeit Gods examines common outward (money, love, family) idols and inward idols (success, power, control) and concludes that all these earthly idols do not fulfill the true desires of your heart. Only Jesus Christ can you find true peace and fulfillment.
