Book Review: Enemies of the Heart
I read this book and it was amazing. It has helped me and opened my eyes. Guilt, Anger, Greed & Jealousy. It touched on all four of these destructive forces. If you are trying to make your heart healthy this is a book for you. It will help learn how to deal and get rid of guilt, anger, greed and jealousy. This book will help you to focus on yourself. We can only change ourselves not others. Andy Stanley sums it up: Guilt: I owe you, Anger: You owe me, Greed: I owe me & Jealousy: God owes me. I love how he does not sugar coat the truth either.

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.
