People are always asking me "Are there any resources you know of that can help me get closer to God?" And every e-mail I get, I sigh and try to point them to a place where they can grow in their relationship with the Lord.
I'm don't sigh out of disgust. But mostly, I sigh just because a relationship with God is something that takes a lifetime. There's no silver bullet that will automatically cure months or years of sin. There's no fast track pass that can replace years of dedication, commitment, pain, suffering, and the joyful mountaintops God has for us.
So Today, I'm announcing to the KIVU family, we're going to read Timothy Keller's book Counterfeit Gods.
We'll have discussions here.
I'll try new ways to include others.
And we'll see if there's a way we can create a "book of the month" club where we can read some of the greatest ideas of our time, and grow together in our relationships with one another.
So, go to amazon.com, purchase counterfeit Gods, and Jan. 18th we'll start our discussion on Chapter 1.
God bless, and I hope this is something that can help kick off your 2010 in your quest to gain closer access to the creator of the Universe.
OH, and here's a little excerpt from Tim Keller about what's in the book.
