Description

A unique angle on the problem of idolatry and how it affects Christians, particularly in our contemporary culture of numerous hidden idols.

The uniqueness of this book comes in the metaphor of sipping saltwater. Even as Christians, we 'sip' on idols such as money, relationships, careers, sex, food, human approval…the list is endless. These things promise to satisfy us—to quench our thirst. In the end, however, they fail to do so and leave us thirstier than we were before drinking them. To make matters worse, we are left with devastating hangovers—the negative consequences of our idolatry.

This book enables readers to identify their own source(s) of saltwater and explains how to quench their thirst with Jesus’ living water—the only drink that will ever truly satisfy us both now and for eternity. It inspires readers to go on in the Christian life as they started—by making Jesus the centre of our lives and giving our worship to him.

Commendations

Our lives get more busy yet more empty. Steve gets this—he gets us. He describes what you feel, why you feel like that, and walks with you to a better way. And, somehow, he does it in a way that makes you feel heard, even befriended. Within two pages you will be drawn in by Steve's honesty and how he seems to speak to you. Then you read the entire book—hope rising with each chapter. Since one chapter will be uniquely yours, you will double back, re-read that chapter, and act on that hope.

This book has been so good for my foolish, thirsty heart that so easily defaults to drinking deadly "saltwater". With great warmth, honesty and insight Steve exposes and redirects our hearts to the Lord Jesus, the only one who can and does quench our thirst and bring joy to our hearts.

A powerfully real and personal book that informs as much as it moves, and challenges as much as it gives hope in the God who gives many gifts.
