Overview

What is idolatry, and how do we identify it? Elyse Fitzpatrick—biblical counselor and author of over 15 books—demonstrates how idolatry can destroy ministries and teaches key steps for leaders to identify idolatry before it takes root. Focusing on God’s commands against idolatry in the Old and New Testaments, she illustrates how the worship of idols manifested in the lives of biblical characters. Fitzpatrick also covers how idolatry affects men and women in their unique callings and how Christ empowers us to overcome.

Getting the most out of Mobile Ed

Logos Mobile Education is a highly effective cross-platform learning environment that integrates world class teaching with the powerful study tools and theological libraries available in Logos Bible Software. Every course provides links to additional resources and suggested readings that supplement the lecture material at the end of every transcript segment.

This course was produced with screencast videos. These videos provide tutorials showing you how to use Logos Bible Software in ways that are tied directly into the content of the course. We are now producing Activities resources as a replacement for screencast videos. We plan on updating this course to include this additional Activities resource in the future for no extra charge.
