129 - Empty Promises

Pete Wilson is a great author.  With his sophomore book he's kept his conversational tone, tightened up his writing, and hits a home run.  Empty Promises addresses the issue of idols in our lives, and why they seem to be a struggle for us.  Wilson talks about the broad topic of idols letting the reader identify the specific ones in their own life.  It was a great read, but a challenging read.  Wilson has done a good job of almost reinventing the Christian Living genre.  His books come across as solid, rather than just another fluffy "read your Bible and pray" kind of book.  This book would be a great fit for a small group study, or just to read on your own.
