Summary

In this compelling and helpful book, previously published as It Came From Within!, pastor and author Andy Stanley wrestles with what he calls"four invaders of the heart": guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy. One or another of these caustic emotions sabotages lives on a daily basis and destroys relationships. But Stanley assures listeners that there is hope.

In his trademark style - smart, engaging, and popular - he examines where these powerful forces come from and reveals effective strategies for overcoming them and moving toward healing and maturity.

ARE YOU UP FOR A CHALLENGE?

Any additional comments?

Andy Stanley frankly addresses fear, jealousy, anger & greed in the context of how these issues of the heart impact our daily life & reactions to both inconsequential & crisis situations.
It IS challenging - it is a mirror - but very worthwhile & loaded with authenticity - a hallmark of Andy Stanley's ministry. I am now on my 3rd listening of this recording. excellent stuff.

Lots of insight into dealing with heart issues

Any additional comments?

I very much enjoyed this book. You can deal with your heart issues so much better when you understand why you feel the way you feel. He really digs into some core issues and how you can bring healing to your heart by finding those issues and bringing them to Christ.

Getting rid of heart poison

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It gets beneath the surface and uncovers destructive emotions that will eventually derail us if not dealt with.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Enemies of the Heart?

How anger says: "You owe me." Greed says: "I owe me," Jealousy says: "God owe me." Guilt says: "I owe you."

What does Lloyd James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Lloyd James read the book well.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, how some of the poison in my heart was exposed! Now I am taking steps to clear up the poison so it does not effect most important relationships in my life.

Compelling, Heart Revelation, Life Changing

What did you love best about Enemies of the Heart?

The author, Andy Stanley, deals with a serious and sensitive subject matter and right through the audio, he manages to make the listener think, 'How does this apply to me and others in my life?' It has helped me to further understand the 'why' in how we behave and to look behind the behaviours to see the reason a person behaves in a certain way, instead of just the behaviours which are the out working of a much deeper issue. I love his sense of humour, I often smiled and sometimes laughed out loud, however there were times when the Lord touched my heart so deeply, I wanted to weep for the lack of understanding and compassion in the world.

Recognizing the enemies

The first step in changing my life is to recognize the problems with my heart. This book brought to the surface deep underlying issues in my heart that I need to address and work on, issues that I’ve ignored for far too long! I am thankful to Andy for writing this book AND to the person who recommended it to me
