Enemies of the Heart: Breaking Free from the Four Emotions That Control You by Andy Stanley--A WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group Book Review

The Blurb:

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:

“Is everything okay with you heart?” Andy Stanley asks.

Our hearts have enemies. They are: Guilt, Anger, Greed and Jealousy. We may think that we do well keeping these things out of our hearts, or that it doesn’t matter, but these enemies can keep us at an arms length from our closest friends and family. Most of all they can keep us from having a better relationship with our Heavenly Father.

I read this book with my Bible and my notebook on hand. Andy Stanley, like his father Charles Stanley gets to the heart of the matter, in a gentle, but firm manner. I think this book should be on everyone’s reading list. Yes, it is that good!
