Overview

This is a TEAMS study created for the Journey from the book Counterfeit Gods by Timothy Keller. (Book Purchase Necessary)

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.

In this Journey Section you will:

  • Take comfort in knowing the universality of the struggle and find hope in the truth that Jesus offers a far greater attraction and return on investment than any idol we find ourselves tempted to pledge our devotion to.
  • Discuss the grip love, money, power, success, and other idols have on our culture and us
  • Dig into the root causes of idolatry as well as the cures
  • Learn how we can replace the idols in our lives with the one true God

Timothy Keller was born and raised in Pennsylvania and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. His first pastorate was in Hopewell, Virginia. In 1989 he started Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City with his wife, Kathy, and their three sons. Today, Redeemer has nearly six thousand regular Sunday attendees and has helped to start more than three hundred new churches around the world. He is the author of The Songs of JesusPrayerEncounters with JesusWalking with God through Pain and SufferingEvery Good Endeavor, and The Meaning of Marriage, among others, including the perennial bestsellers The Reason for God and The Prodigal God.
