Interview with Tim Keller and Video

20 Oct

Just came across this on Justin Taylor’s blog at TGC.  In the post, he put up a link to Christianity Today’s interview with Tim Keller corresponding with his new book, Counterfeit Gods: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope that Matters, available on amazon.com as of today.  In the interview, Keller succinctly and effectively answers these six questions:

  • How should Christians think of money, sex, and power?
  • What makes these three so enticing and difficult to control?
  • Do Christians have blind spots when it comes to false gods?
  • How does someone identify their idols?
  • How do we get rid of idols?
  • Is it necessary to suffer disappointment before seeing that idols don’t satisfy?

He also posted a video in which Tim Keller explains the basic premise behind why and for whom he wrote the book.  Here’s the video for your convenience.
