Over the past few years I have read several of Andy Stanley's books and he is fast becoming among my favorite author/pastor/teachers. He writes in an easy to read style, yet does not insult your intelligence. The author uses Scripture and illustrations to make his case, and he also provides ways that you can practically apply the information he presents.
If you have any issues in your life that stem from guilt, anger, greed or jealosy (and it is likely we all have at some point in our lives), then this book is a helpful resource.
I received a copy of this book through the Blogging for Books Program, but was not required to provide a positive review of the material.
You go to the doctor for a routine exam and he finds something wrong with your heart. It is not as healthy as you thought.
In his book, *It Came From Within*, author and pastor, Andy Stanley exposes the shocking truth of what really lurks in our hearts. There are four "monsters" that reside in our hearts that wreck havoc in our lives. This book not only exposes these "monsters" operate but it also gives us four biblical weapons to destroy them.
I highly recommend this easy to understand book on how to live a victorious life.
In "Enemies of the Heart" Andy Stanley deals with four things that have the power to consume a person from the inside out. Anger, guilt, greed, and jealousy. He describes what each of these look like in a persons life, and how biblically they are sinful. He then give a scriptural remedy for fighting against these; forgiveness, confession, generosity, and celebration. Whether or not you feel you are dealing with any of these issues, it is a great book. You may discover some hidden areas of your life that God wants to fix. Or you may be able to use the scriptures to help a friend who is struggling. Andy Stanley is a great pastor whose books are centered on scripture and practical for the reader.
