This book takes a clear-eyed look at moralism and how Christians tend to put their faith in their ability to perform for God, rather than accepting by faith His performance for them. Contrary to our default mind-set as Christians, God is not pleased when we trade honest relationships for rote obligations. This is how we get caught up with our little saviors: something or someone--smaller than Jesus--that a worshipper looks to for some form of salvation. Many little saviors have nestled unnoticed in our marriages, churches, families, and communities. They are often disguised as good things to pursue, or wages that we believe we have to earn, or control of others we feel entitled to. We run after them with reckless abandon to the destruction of intimate relationships and faith. No one is immune from worshipping little saviors, including the author of this book. But there is freedom in calling them out. And there is good news: Jesus is a real Savior. He is our perfect righteousness and the end of our striving after lesser, little saviors.
