Idols are good for two things: making us feel important and making us feel loved. But the idols keep crashing---even when the author turns to his own Christian faith to construct an identity that will give him the life he craves. Through a variety of experiences---sublime and wretched, ego-building and humbling, joyous and painful---he learns the difference between pursuing 'holy hero status' and discovering the unpredictable and uncontrollable love of God.


The author of My Beautiful Idol is on a quest to be successful-in a lucrative job at an advertising agency, in ministry work, even in his relationships. And in a futile attempt to control the sources of love and security, he has turned these things into idols he can keep in his soul's back pocket. He pulls the idols out when he feels vulnerable and defenseless, and hides them again when things are going well. But the idols keep failing-even when he turns to his own Christian faith. In a creative narrative style rooted in raw honesty, My Beautiful Idol invites readers to identify with the young would-be Christian hero as he seeks God, and as he hides from God. Far from reducing complex matters to simplistic formulas, Pete Gall weaves together stories both sublime and wretched, ego-building and humbling, humorous and painful, and successfully celebrates the messiness of faith, the importance of validating truth, and the unscripted nature of experiencing a God who is intimately involved in all of life.
