Book Review: Enemies of the Heart

By Andy Stanley

Enemies of the Heart by Andy Stanley is an informal text about four main emotions that may grip one's heart, robbing them of a full life. The book discusses where emotions come from, the four emotions (guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy), how to deal with each of the emotions, and how to go on with life.  The book is full of personal experiences shared by the author. The emotions are demonstrated clearly through the detail of real experiences rather than being at the philosophical level.  It may be difficult to relate at times, if your experience is different than that of the authors.  Overall the book provides a good frame work for addressing the heart issues: "confess, forgive, give, celebrate".
