Today we are told to be true to ourselves, look within for answers, and follow our hearts. But when we put our own happiness first, we experience record-breaking levels of aimlessness, loneliness, depression, and anxiety. Self-centeredness always fails to deliver on its promises.
In Don’t Follow Your Heart, Thaddeus Williams debunks the “ten commandments of self-worship,” calling on a new generation of mavericks and renegades, heretics who refuse to march in unison with the self-obsessed herd. With a fascinating blend of theology, philosophy, science, psychology, and pop culture, Williams points us to a life beyond the self-defeating dogmas of self-worship to a more meaningful life centered on Someone infinitely more interesting, satisfying, and awesome than ourselves.

MEET THE AUTHOR
Thaddeus Williams (PhD, Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam) serves as professor of theology for Biola University and author of the best-seller Confronting Injustice without Compromising Truth: 12 Questions Christians Should Ask about Social Justice. Full Bio
"As a professor of Millennials and Gen Z I have seen firsthand how self-worship—elevating your emotions to sacred, unquestionable status, making personal fulfillment the end-all-be-all of existence—has become the dominant life-orientation in the West. I have also seen firsthand just how much pressure, anxiety, and devastation self-worship causes. We were never meant to bear the impossible weight of creating and sustaining our identities. My primary purpose in writing is to help readers find the sweet liberation from being their own deities, the lightheartedness and joy and meaning that come from worshipping God as God."
