Our hearts are made for unswaying allegiance to a king and a kingdom. Yet every day the false rulers of anxiety, approval, comfort, image, escape, power, accumulation, self-sufficiency, supremacy, and shame plot to reign over our hearts instead. Their lies about the true King are so subtle and insidious that we rarely recognize them, and we go on living with divided loyalties that stall our spiritual growth, infect our relationships, and hinder our witness.
If you want to find freedom from the forces vying for your heart, let Christine Hoover equip you for the fight. In this approachable yet provocative book, she helps you root out your own misplaced allegiances so that you can live wholly as a subject of the King who made and redeemed you.
"Jesus commands us to love God with all our heart. And that's what Christine helps us to do in this penetrating and vulnerable book."--Collin Hansen, editorial director for The Gospel Coalition and author of Blind Spots: Becoming a Courageous, Compassionate, and Commissioned Church
"Through vulnerable stories and candid confessions, Christine's words had us nodding along. But she also gently beckoned us to evaluate our affections, giving Christ our full allegiance--the only One who can truly satisfy. These pages are truth-filled and encouraging!"--Emily Jensen and Laura Wifler, cofounders of the Risen Motherhood ministry and coauthors of Risen Motherhood: Gospel Hope for Everyday Moments
