This book literally changed my life. I went into the bookstore, saw this, and thought "I don't need this book, I know who God is and I don't put anything before Him" HA!... Was I wrong, this book opened my eyes to the little things I do unknowingly that come before God in my life as well as the big things I need to surrender to Him. After reading this book, I wish I could find Kelly Minter and give her a huge HUG... This book has changed me forever, it has got me back aligned with God, and improved the way I see MY God. On top of being a good book, it's also funny, fresh, and honest. IT is as if you're sitting and having girl-talk with your big sister... You definitely should read this!

The book never really goes anywhere. She starts talking about ideas and beliefs, but never expounds on the thought she starts. It was hard to get through, because after the first few chapters when you realize her writing style, you know anything she brings up will not go anywhere so it feels pointless to continue reading. A friend and I did this as a devotional and we both felt it lacked.

This takes all those Bible verses about false idols and makes them applicable to our lives right now. I really enjoyed this book, and the way it made me look at my own behaviors, and the things I am willing to make god in my life.

I have heard of "screen idols" and such all my life. But idols to worship? It seems so primitive, something so distant from us in time and culture. Kelly Minter was looking at a large idol in a museum and thinking dismissive thoughts of the people who used to worship and make sacrifices to it when she realized that, as far as God is concerned, there's little difference between worshiping a statue and worshiping anything else that is not God. And modern people do it all the time. Minter's openness with her own struggles brings her book to life. It is engagingly written and shows signs not only of deep thought, but much prayer.

She writes very adequately. I thought her personal stores were to much in some chapters. I will say the biggest thing the Lord showed me about this book is I turn to "bible self help" books instead of my bible and Him. I putting all bible self books down for now:)

hen some people think of idols, they may think of the statue gods that are worshipped in the Old Testament. However, “No Other Gods: Confronting Our Modern-Day Idols,” by Kelly Minter gives a fresh perspective to idolatry, and reveals what idols today could be hindering one’s relationship with the Lord. This book is challenging for believers and non-believers alike. For the non-believer, it teaches about the one true God and how how there is no other god but Jesus Christ. For the believer, it helps remind us of what things in our life have been made more important than our relationship with God.

At the beginning of the book, Kelly describes a visit she had to a museum, and how one stone statue caught her eye. She immediately questioned how people could put trust and belief into a stone. That is when the Lord revealed to her that she does it all the time, just with different things. Minter states, “If I could display the images that splashed through my mind, you would have seen that statue turn into familiar faces from my life, career paths, and dreams. Not necessarily bad things, just things that had become detrimental because I had exalted them as gods, things that I believed could bring me life.”

One of my favorite parts in the book was when Kelly told the stories of Leah and Rachel who were two sisters from the Bible. Leah spent her life trying to gain the affections of Jacob because she continually felt unloved and wanted the kind of affection from him that Rachel had. However, Rachel spent her life discontent because she wanted lots of kids like Leah had, and lived her life jealous and unsatisfied because that desire was not fulfilled (To read more of Rachel and Leah’s story go to Genesis 29:31-30:24).

I was really disappointed with this book. A dear friend of mine recommended it, but we did not realize that she had actually read the Bible study version ("living room series"). Perhaps this author's writing style is more suited to a Bible study.

I gave this book two stars rather than one because there are a few nuggets that shine through, where the author shares of herself and her experience in a way that allows you to glimpse the transforming power that she talks about. From these few examples, I can tell that the she has had a significant experience, but she does not share enough of herself to let us in on that experience. There's not enough to connect with the reader.

The VAST majority of the book is filled with generic, vague allusions to struggles, steps, and recoveries. You get little to no insight about what these struggles actually were, what functional idols she has let go of, what steps she has taken, and HOW she has been transformed. Instead, the overall impression is trite, impersonal, and superficial. While there are a few glimpses, it fails to really express the power that I do believe this author (and many of us who seek God) has experienced and longs to experience.
