“A Fresh Look at ‘Idols of the Heart'”

David Powlison’s article “Idols of the Heart and Vanity Fair” has had a long shelf-life and has often been cited. Over the years, we have heard of how people understand and apply this article helpfully—and we’ve also encountered ways that people misunderstand and misapply it. Powlison has now written a companion commentary to address these misunderstandings and to offer you a reading strategy. It is included along with the original article.

Find the article in the Journal of Biblical Counseling, volume 27:3 here. The original article, “Idols of the Heart and Vanity Fair” is from JBC 13:2.
