Tim Keller's New Book -- Counterfeit Gods

Tim Keller's newest book is coming out in October. If you want to pre-order it amazon will be selling it. On Westminster's site you can read an excerpt. Here is a quote from the book:

What is an idol? It is anything more important to you

than God, anything that absorbs your heart and imagination

more than God, anything you seek to give you

what only God can give.

Marriage is Tough

Fireproof is a really powerful movie on marriage. It hits at the heart of some very important themes that people really struggle with as they try to build a healthy marriage. I love Tim Keller's thought that marriages are "Gospel Reenactment". I also have been reading lately John Pipers book this Momentary Marriage.

Marriage for me is the closest thing I have to a visible representation of my relationship with Christ. I can see that relationship out loud through my dedication and devotion to Adriane. I praise God we have never fought like this, but I know it can come if we choose to stop turning towards each other and selfishly pursue our own needs and wants before we pursue others.

CS Lewis on the Moral Gospel

I have been rereading The Great Divorce and came upon this passage about the moral man and his need to claim a sense of justice for his good work and a need to look down upon those who did not achieve moral success.
'That may do very well for you, I daresay. If they choose to let in a bloody murderer all because he makes a poor mouth at the last moment, that's their look out. But I don't see myself going in the same boat as you, see? Why should I? I don't want charity. I'm a decent man and if I had my rights I'd have been here long ago and you can tell them I said so.' ~ CS Lewis, Great Divorce
