What’s truly at the heart of our desires?
The Envy of Eve guides readers to understand how desires grow into covetousness and what happens when this sin takes power in our hearts. Covetousness chokes out the fruit of the Spirit in our lives, allowing discontentment to bloom. The key to overcoming is to get to the root of our problem: unbelief–a mistrust of God’s sovereignty and goodness. An ideal resource for deeper study or group discussion.
