This book seriously stepped on my toes, but that was necessary to get to the "heart of the matter" Andy Stanley really exposes what is wrong in our hearts that causes us so much distress. If you wonder why the advice to "follow your heart" seems to lead in the wrong direction, you will find the answer here.
This book helped me a lot when I was going through a personal crisis. I guess the book could offer more practical recommendations, but the tone of the book is very inspirational. If you're looking for a more practical approach, then you may want to read Secret Techniques for Controlling Sadness, Anger, Fear, Anxiety, and Other Emotions by Vlad Koros. These two books complement each other well, or so I think.
If you struggle with forgiveness of yourself or others, please read this book. You will learn to look at forgiveness with the perspective of the cross, as Andy Stanley put it. Learn to let go and let God bring true peace and joy to your life. Stop carrying past hurts and forgive the debt as God forgave you.
Excellent book for general reading but particulary for those who are experiencing challenges in their faith walk. These four heart issues address a broad range of difficulties in living a victorious life.
I love Andy Stanley! This is a fantastic book. Right now I am only on chapter 4, but I can't wait to read more! Andy Stanley cuts to some deep truths, but he does it in a fun and easy to understand way. I definitely have a lot to think about!
