Item Description...
What is Godlust? It is the pervasive urge to throw off the constraints pf humanity and become God-not "godly" or "godlike," but God. Godlust is what blocks us from growing into a proper relationship with the divine and becoming the persons we are meant to be. It is the Original Sin. In this facinating book, Kerry Walters not only explores how Godlust insinuates itself into our lives, but also discusses stratagies for purging it from our spiritual systems and reestablishing our relationship with God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
It helps  Sep 22, 2001
Basically, I've been trying to read books these past two weeks that can help me understand what makes us so willing to kill others. I'm referring, of course, to what happened on September 11th, but also to mankind's history of war and murder and cruelty. Godlust goes a long way explaining why we do the things we do. Even better, it offers strategies for breaking out of the cycle of violence.
Clean up your life  Mar 16, 2001
When I first read the subtitle, I thought this was going to be another one of those crazy fundamentalist books about demons and exorcism. Wrong. The "demonic" is our own psychological drive to imagine that we're God, totally in control of our lives and the final authorities on everything under the sun. Old-fashioned idolatry is the fundamental human sin that holds us back from finding God and finding ourselves. Reading this book helped me see the different ways that I act like God. It's frightening to realize just how infected we all are with "godlust." PS--another reviewer said the book was hard to read in places. Yeah, it is. The author doesn't act like we're morons.
Marvelous expose on truth, goodness, and beauty  Mar 16, 2001
Finally someone has written the book that brings the Bible alive by explaining through the life of King Herod the age-old struggle of good and evil, truth and lie, beauty (wholeness) and our shattered, fallen nature. This book is for the intellectual seeker who longs to see the face of God and understand why the world is what it is. As an author, I've perused its pages more than once, recommended it to fellow writers, and even quoted it in a book on loss (Dare to Trust, Dare to Hope Again--Living With Losses of the Heart--Fall 2001 release) that I just finished writing. Godlust deserves to be on the bookshelf of every pastor, priest, and theology professor and in the hands of all who seek the Truth. It gave me a clearer view not only of the Creator but of life's losses and why people do what they do.
He hits the nail on the head  Feb 2, 2001
This isn't the easiest of reads, but it's worth picking up. The author basically argues that humans have tried to usurp God's place, and then shows how this "cosmic takeover" pans out in three areas: truth, beauty, and goodness. I especially like the way the author discusses how Godlusters think they're the source of all truth. A timely discussion for a day and age that thinks all truth is subjective. My only problem with the book is that it's difficult to follow in places. Walters is a philosopher, and sometimes he (she?) is a little technical. That's why I give it four stars instead of five.
Do you want to be God?  Jan 5, 2001
Walters claims that many people are infected with the lust to be God, and that this drives us to try and conquer truth, beauty, and goodness. The chapter on our war against nature is especially good. The discussion of the flick "Citizen Kane" in the last chapter makes me want to see it again. A great book, but watch out--if the author is correct, a lot of what he says may hit too close to home.
