David Garner is the Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary. His blurb for Tim Keller's newest book Counterfeit Gods helped me today: 

"Combining biblical theology with experienced surgery on the soul over the years in modern Manhattan, Pastor Tim Keller performs an M.R.I. of our hearts and graphically exposes its results… Read this volume, but only if you dare submit your heart to the surgical probe of the Gospel…"

"And like any good surgeon, Keller doesn't leave us merely exposed, but compellingly points us to the cure: the One exposed, ravaged, ruined and resurrected for us."

To think of Jesus as "the One exposed, ravaged, ruined, and resurrected for us" is the great gospel-soaked reminder I needed this morning.
