Enemies of the Heart

Enemies of the Heart

Breaking Free from the Four Emotions That Control You

Written by Andy Stanley

Break free from the destructive power of guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy.

Divorce. Job loss. Estrangement from family members. Broken friendships.

The difficult circumstances you are dealing with today are likely being fed by one of four emotional forces that compels you to act in undesirable ways, sometimes even against your will.

Andy Stanley explores each of these destructive forces—guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy—and how they infiltrate your life and damage your relationships. He says that, left unchallenged they have the power to destroy your home, your career, and your friendships.

In Enemies of the Heart, Andy offers practical, biblical direction to help you fight back, to take charge of those feelings that mysteriously control you, and to restore your broken relationships.

Includes a six-week discussion guide—a valuable resource for small groups!

My review:
Andy Stanley is a great speaker and he's a great writer. His writing (like his preaching style) is laid back and easy to understand. He tackles the tough topics - not just a portion of the gospel, but the whole gospel. This book is good for anyone to read, whether they are looking for a biblical approach to the enemies of the heart or not. While I was reading, I kept thinking of people who could benefit from this book (when, in fact, I was benefiting!)

I highly recommend this book to anyone. (I highly recommend Andy Stanley to anyone.) 

Thank you, Waterbrook and Andy Stanley for providing me with a free review copy in exchange for my review. It was such a great book!
