Enemies of the heart is one of those books that made me evaluate my attitudes and thoughts about various events and people in my life. It really opened my eyes to unhealthy emotions hidden in my own heart.

With that said I want to make it clear that Enemies of the heart is not a self-help, 4 steps , How to make all your problems go away kind of a book.

This book, written in a conversational style, leads you to think about your hearts attitude toward circumstances.
Andy Stanley Describes in perfect detail the reasons We often feel anger, jealousy, and Greed. He describes how harmful these emotions become when they go unchecked.

He not only exposes the dangers of these emotions, but he gives us the tools to begin the journey towards conquering those enemies of your heart. And yes we all have them.
This book is very well written and kept my interest all the way to the end. I even went back and re-read and underlined things I needed to stick in my own heart.
I recommend this book to anyone who is hurting, or has been hurt in the past, knows someone that is hurting, or will be hurt in the near future. Enemies of the heart is a very well written book perfect for those moments in the waiting room, bus,train ride, and can even be used as a devotional or a study group guide. (The study guide is in the back of the book)
Get this book. You will be changed by it.
Forgive.Celebrate.Move forward.

In this book, the author, Andy Stanley, states that their are four enemies of the heart. They are: greed, jealousy, guilt and anger. He gives practical advice alone with biblical insight (scriptures). With the tools he provide and prayer I would say one should be able to break the strong holds that linger within our heart. The author also included advice on LUST and how it should be controlled. I really like the last pages in the book too. A study guide that can be used in a group setting. I enjoyed reading this novel and think the author made is simple and practical enough for any adult level reader will understand.

    Book Review: Enemies of the Heart
    By Andy Stanley

    Enemies of the Heart by Andy Stanley is an informal text about four main emotions that may grip one's heart, robbing them of a full life. The book discusses where emotions come from, the four emotions (guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy), how to deal with each of the emotions, and how to go on with life. The book is full of personal experiences shared by the author. The emotions are demonstrated clearly through the detail of real experiences rather than being at the philosophical level. It may be difficult to relate at times, if your experience is different than that of the authors. Overall the book provides a good frame work for addressing the heart issues: "confess, forgive, give, celebrate".


    ¿I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review¿.
