Publisher's Description

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!

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Enemies of the Heart

"Andy Stanley touches the right nerve at the right time. We all have an understandable tendency to focus on the problems others need to address in their lives. But Andy encourages us to put ourselves on the hook and not let go until we’ve made any necessary changes. This book shined a spotlight on some of those areas I need to work on, and
I know it will do the same for you."
—Shaunti Feldhahn, best-selling author of For Women Only

"Andy Stanley is a master teacher for a generation that loves to be taught. Here is yet more proof of Andy’s ability to take us deep in a way that makes us want to go there. This is a great book."
—Dave Ramsey, New York Times best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio host

"Read this book with caution! You will probably uncover some mean and ugly stuff in the depths of your own heart. I sure did. The good news is that Andy Stanley doesn’t leave you there to struggle; instead, he offers wise, biblical remedies that every Christian should make part of their own spiritual habits. This is great stuff that I enjoyed teaching
at our church."
—Doug Fields, former associate pastor, Saddleback Church

    I started to read parts of this, and had to stop. I'm afraid I could not agree with some opinions put forward as certainty or truth. E.g. some emotions are bad, and these are them. This is simply not true. Also citing too simplistically that anger is a result of not getting what I want, or that some one owes me, is more like dealing with an immature child then healthy minded, functional adults. Are we to say that Jesus getting angry in the temple at the traders was because he did not get His way? God punished and destroyed cities and nations for their wickedness all because He didn't get what He wants? It's quiet absurd. No point starting the "God has holy-righteous anger" slant either. I get angry as anything when I see child abuse. I get angry when I hear of rape, and crimes against the weak and helpless. So please, what here didn't go my way? What does some one owe me? What has hurt me?

    All emotion has a place in us to communicate something, including these "bad" ones. Don't fear the emotion, but rather the uncontrolled, unbalanced, ungodly extremes. Pray for an understanding and balance of it, and deliverance from the extremes and lack of control of all emotions, like rage, hate, panic/paranoia, depression, isolation, hysteria (extreme "joy"), and enfatutaion (extreme "love"). Yes, even these "feel-good-church-approved" emotions can bind and destroy us when we let them take control.

    A number of parts seem not to have come from personal experience, struggle, and triumph, but rather text-book opinion. There may be some great and useful stuff in here, but not for me, or I didn't get to it.

    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.
