Strange Gods PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Strange Gods free pdf Renowned in the blogosphere as The Anchoress and as Catholic Portal editor of the popular Patheos.com, Elizabeth Scalia offers a powerful critique of the "gods" we worship today, reminding readers that life's deepest desires can be satisfied only in Christ. Elizabeth Scalia's Strange Gods brings her iconoclastic vim and vigor to this, her debut trade book. She offers readers a surprising look at the ways in which modern people still commit the sin of idolatry in their everyday lives. While literal golden calves no longer dot the landscape, Scalia describes how legitimate loves become obsessively twisted into idols. She identifies idolatry in a number of everyday experiences--friendships that become needy or possessive, commitments political and religious that grow so intense they lead to hatred of others, to name a few--and points to the incarnation of Christ and authentic worship of him as a way out of idolatry and into peace, happiness, and love.
