Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Idols: Kennedy (Prayers God Always Answers; Mom on the Run; Honey, They're Playing Our Song) says that everyone has them, though some people are more coy about their enslavement than others. With wit and style, this book gives those cumbersome idols the comeuppance they deserve. Calling upon her own weaknesses to illustrate how destructively idols can insidiously capture the heart, soul and spirit, Kennedy reveals the darker side of common idols such as useless chatter, image, food, busyness, possessions, achievement, approval, control, perfect relationships, perfectionism, attention, happiness, being right, independence, revenge, self-pity, romance and self-righteousness. Kennedy asserts that the only way to be set free from an idol's grip is to "repent, replace, and rejoice." Freedom seekers must repent by identifying the idol specifically, unmasking its power and recognizing its danger. They then replace the idol with Christ and concentrate on the truth that he is enough. Finally, they can rejoice by cultivating a deep, satisfying relationship with God and honor God with thanksgiving. As if Kennedy's self-abasing humorous anecdotes weren't satisfying enough, she concludes each chapter with a "Think on These Things" list of reflections, applications and Bible readings. Readers will feast on Kennedy's poignant lessons made palatable by her down-to-earth transparency. (Sept.)

Review

"Move over, Victoria--I Know the Real Secret! moved me! It moved me to laughter, insight, and ownership. Identification (and I certainly i.d. with Nancy) is a safe way to 'fess up to our humanity, allowing us to draw closer to God's divinity. Move over, girlfriends, because here comes Nancy Kennedy, a wacky and winsome woman!"  
-- Patsy Clairmont, author of Stardust on my Pillow: Stories to Sleep On (and lots of others!)

Format: Paperback
This book was great! It was honest, pointed and exactly what I needed to hear! I read it last year, and was so excited i wrote to the author, Nancy Kennedy. (I've NEVER written to an author or anything before!) She wrote back to me! How exciting to a 26 year old new SAHM with cabin fever! : ) I've used her note as a bookmark since I received it. I'm on my 4th read thru; sometimes I just skip to the chapter I need to read at that time. If you are thinking of reading this book- do it!

Nancy Kennedy teaches with simple stories that have BIG meanings. (Hmmm...reminds me of another teacher...) I was attracted by the humor of this book and was held by its truth--which is repeatedly confirmed in the many, many scriptural references. I'm sharing this book (and her others) with my friends who are enjoying Mrs. Kennedy's writing as much as I do.

I found the title MISleading very much so. SOME of her insights were really great,..but,..the REASON I bought the book was to overcome the hurdles in my romantic life,..which ARE huge. NO help WHATSOEVER on THAT topic,..the one I bought it for. I WILL keep it and refer to the parts that helped me. The sockroller story was SO true,..here it's a towel wadder,..HOW can it POSSIBLY dry,...when it's all WADDED up?
