Greg Dutcher is senior pastor of Christ Fellowship Church in Fallston, Maryland. He and his wife, Lisa have four children.
"The first two commandments and the cautionary history of ancient
Israel should set our hearts at their highest level of alert
against idolatry. Perhaps we are more sophisticated than our
forefathers who made wood and stone images of their gods--but ours
are no less deadly for being invisible. We need to drag them out
into the light and smash them to peices in repentance. Greg
Dutcher's book serves as a set of "night-vision goggles" to help us
root these insidious idols out of our hearts. Then he goes further
and restores and renews us in full-fledged adoration of
Jesus."--Kris Lundgaard, author of "The Enemy Within"
"This is a great book (and a needed one), and Greg's writing is crisp and fun."--Dr. Steve Brown, nationally syndicated talk-show host, Key Life Network
"This book first frightens, then entrances, then liberates. It frightens as it lays bare the hidden idols of the heart. It entrances with the promise of a treasure worth more than all our idols put together. And ultimately, it liberates with a vision of Christ so complelling and so powerful that the reader says, "O Lord, set me free and I will be free indeed." It's easy to make people feel guilty about their idols. Greg Dutcher inspires us to set aside our trinkets in pursuit of the Ultimate Treasure."--Dr. Ray Pritchard, president of Keep Believing Ministries, and authour of "An Anchor for the Soul," "The Healing Power of Foregivness," He's God and We're Not"
"Of the making of books that make us feel better there is no end, but books that actually make us better are rare. Greg Dutcher has done the rare thing: journeyed into the heart of darkness--our penchant for idols--and then blazed a trail back into daylight. He dares to tell us the bad news about ourselves in order that we can hear, clear and fresh, the good news in spite of ourselves."--Mark Buchanan, author of "The Rest of God: Restoring Your Soul by Restoring Sabbath" and "Hidden in Plain Sight"
"Greg Dutcher's book is excellent. It is biblical in content and very well written. It is wonderful that Greg has made the subject so accessible. He is a master of illustration. The discussion of the idols of our lives leads to a strong affirmation of the gospel. This book would be great for adult or high school Bible studies or as a gift for an inquirer."--Dr. John Fram, professor of systematic theology and philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, and author "The Doctrine of God" and "Salvation Belongs to the Lord"
