    One thought on “Enemies of the Heart: Breaking Free from the Four Emotions That Control You”

    1. Compared to most books that I review, this one took me a long time to finish. In most cases that would mean a snoozer of a book, but not in this instance. With this book I found myself reading a portion then needing to take some time to digest what was being said. The four main topics that are covered are guilt, anger, greed and jealousy. If you were to casually ask me if I struggled with these areas I would probably say no. But, upon reflection while reading this work I found many areas that ne [...]

    2. The chapter at the end about how to help your children guard their heart is worth the cost of the book. That means that you get to learn about the 4 habits to help you break free from guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy at no charge! Andy explains that each of these "four foes" is fueled by a single dynamic which makes them so problematic. They each result in a debt-to-debtor relationship. Guilt: I Owe You. Anger: You Owe Me. Greed: I Owe Me. Jealously: God Owes Me. "Confess, forgive, give, celebr [...]

    3. When I initially began this book, I had difficulty figuring out where the author was going however, after a couple of chapters it was obvious. I found the book to be very thought-provoking and actually re-read some of it simply to think about it a little more.I requested it to read myself, however, it would be a good resource for small groups as well and it includes discussion questions for that purpose in the back. I didn't actually realize that until I had finished it. I would recommend this b [...]

    4. I loved this book. I purchased the audiobook first and enjoyed it so much I bought the paperback as a study tool. Andy Stanley explains each problem/enemy in detail and then provides you with step by step instructions how to release yourself from the emotions that limit you from living your most fulfilling life. However, you must be willing to look at yourself honestly and want to make a better life for yourself.

    5. This is a great book for anyone. I love Andy Stanley's writing style. He is a gifted teacher and explains things so well that I feel he is talking only to me.

    6. I thank God for letting me read this book. If not for this, I wouldn't have the time to truly assess my heart and its issues. Putting it out on the light was not easy, it was painful and shameful thing but it actually felt better. Being sensitive to the problems of my heart helped me to deal with it in a thorough manner. It wasn't easy, too but it was worth doing.

    7. First and foremost, let me ask you this:**How are you doing?** This is not one of those questions you can brush off and say, “I’m fine, thanks, and you?” Really stop and take a deep look inside yourself, at your heart. How is your heart doing?Think about it for a moment. Anything eating away at you? If you are struggling with any of the four enemies of the heart: guilt, anger, jealousy, greed (even lust – though it is not a true enemy of the heart as God did create it), I urge you to pic [...]

    8. Andy's insights are always worthy of reflection. Although no self help book can solve problems without the guidance of the Holy Spirit; the book did cause me to reflect on the symptoms that manifest as heart issues. I also thought that his advice on recognizing how children's hearts become damaged and cause behaviors or symptoms such as anger is worthwhile information for parents. Bottom line is there is no way for parents to raise children without some damage to their hearts. Only Gods grace an [...]

    9. I loved this book. It was what I needed. If you think you don't need some assistance, you're wrong. Each of the 4 enemies lies within all of us and the sooner you recognize them the sooner you can defend against them. Raising children is especially important to get rid of these because you will donate these enemies to your kids whether you intended to or not. Enemies of the HeartGuilt- I owe you. Solution, ConfessionAnger- You owe me. Solution, ForgivenessGreed- I owe me. Solution, GiveJealousy- [...]

    10. I went through "Enemies of the Heart" with a small group of pastors and we really benefited from the experience. I think the book should be utilized as a tool to help us more effectively navigate the challenges of life rather than a self-contained replacement for the gospel. What I mean is that the human heart is complicated and it's easy for us to ignore important issues as we seek to live out the Christian faith. A book like "Enemies of the Heart" will help us to do this more effectively, but [...]

    11. Guilt, Anger, Greed, and Jealousy: According to Andy Stanley, these are the four emotions that control us all. And while he explains that most of us likely do not struggle with all four of these “Enemies of the Heart,” we do struggle with at least one of them. One thing I really appreciated about Andy’s approach to writing this book is that he exposes his own flaws and uses himself as an example to illustrate the points he is trying to make over and over again throughout the book. I found [...]

    12. Three Hits and a "Whiff"by Fred W. AnsonA review of Andy Stanley's "Enemies of the Heart: Breaking Free from the Four Emotions That Control You"Andy Stanley is the senior pastor of North Point Community Church and son of Dr. Charles F. Stanley, the senior pastor of the First Baptist Church of Atlanta and the author of several books including "How Good Is Good Enough?" which I read several years ago and, I thought, a solid vernacular treatise on grace versus works. He has an engaging, approacha [...]

    13. ENEMIES OF THE HEARTBreaking Free From the Four Emotions That Control YouBy Andy Stanley“Life can be hard on the heart. The world is full of outside influences that have the power to disrupt the power of the heart.” But over time we desensitize our hearts and throw our hearts out of their natural sync. Most people do not pay attention to the condition of their heart, but rather their behavior. “Treating the symptoms masks the real culprit” and “delays treatment of the problem.” The l [...]

    14. This book, like a few others [1], was recommended to me by a friend of mine who I once briefly dated as a college student. It was a particularly good recommendation, as the author is a mainstream Christian leader in the Atlanta area who happens to be friends with Louie Giglio, founder of Passion [2] and a gentleman who speaks quite personally and passionately about matters of the heart [3] from the point of view of the Bible and Christianity. At the core of this book is a concern on the part of [...]

    15. Este livro traz reflexões muito relevantes, aplicáveis e desafiadoras. Andy Stanley tem uma habilidade ímpar pra tornar simples conceitos que são complexos. Ele argumenta que devemos cuidar das 4 emoções que envenenam nosso coração e ele as define da seguinte forma:Culpa: eu devo algo a vocêRaiva: você me deve algoGanância: eu devo a mim mesmoInveja: Deus me deveO antídoto pra cada um deles? Confissão, Perdão, Generosidade e Celebrar as conquistas dos outros. Na teoria, simples, n [...]

    16. A thought provoking, very practical book about dealing with shame, anger, jealousy and greed. I do feel that one enemy of the heart wasn't dealt with and that's pride. It's akin to jealousy but not quite the same. The bible has lots to say on the subject of pride and I would have liked to have seen it included.

    17. A great read and a guide for fixing your heartOur men's group at church (and the women's group too) use this book in our covenant groups, it is such a great teaching tool, it opens discussions and points your hearts in the right direction. This book is easy to read and hard to put down! I will be purchasing more of Andy's books, this one has inspired me.

    18. Brilliant book. The best way to sum up this book is to quote Proverbs 4 v 23 'Above all else guard your heart'. This book is well written and easy to understand setting out some excellent advice on how to deal with four very controlling emotions, guilt, anger, greed and jealousy. I highly recommend this book.

    19. If you like Andy Stanley's speaking, you'll probably like his writing as well. This book offers four clear ways to attack four common heart issues: guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy. It's a quick read and very relevantlow on psychological explanations and high on application. I like how Andy simplifies these often tangled emotions.

    20. I was expecting some earth-shattering secrets in this book, but instead it's solutions were simple and gospel-based, which was profound and true in an unexpected way. Very easy, quick read, but written in a way that provokes necessary self-reflection.

    21. I enjoying reading this about 4 emotions that hurt your heart. It does have a religion touch which I liked.

    22. I read this every year. Helps to keep me grounded as a leader. Getting ready to start it again on Jan 1, 2018.

    23. Great book. Guilt, anger, greed, jealousy. Heart issues from which all problems stem. A good book to study in a group.

    24. Pastor and author Andy Stanley, in his book Enemies of the Heart, provides the reader with a valuable insight into what for most people continues to be the most often overlooked aspect of their spiritual well-being, namely a heart full of evil. Stanley rightly reminds us of the need to be cognizant of the words of Jesus to the Pharisees throughout the gospels - the fact it is not what goes into us that defiles us as much as it is what flows from the heart that is demonstrative of our spiritual h [...]
