You can read my full review at Quieted Waters.

Pete Wilson is a pastor at Cross Point Church in Nashville, author of Plan B, and blogger at WithoutWax.tv. Empty Promises is Wilson’s second book, and it dwells on the longings of our hearts, on what we crave.

This book has strong echoes of two other authors, C. S. Lewis and Tim Keller. The closest comparison is Keller’s Counterfeit Gods, which deals with nearly the same subject. Keller’s book is more deeply analytical and focused on theology, while Wilson writes with a goal of speaking to the reader’s daily life. Empty Promises focuses on applicability. Each chapter includes questions the reader should ask for self-analysis, to identify possible idols in your own heart. ( )
