Elizabeth Scalia offers readers a surprising look at the ways in which modern people still commit the sin of idolatry in their everyday lives. While literal golden calves no longer dot the landscape, Scalia describes how legitimate loves become obsessively twisted into idols. She identifies idolatry in a number of everyday experiences – friendships that become needy or possessive, commitments political and religious that grow so intense they lead to hatred of others, to name a few – and points to the incarnation of Christ and authentic worship of him as a way out of idolatry and into peace, happiness, and love 12663.
