Enemies of The Heart

Enemies of The Heart By Charles Stanley

I thought this was a good book that really had some great points!  This book is a reissue of the book It Came From Withing - which I didn't know until after reading this book and hadn't read so that book didn't have an impact on my thoughts/feelings on this book.

I enjoyed that this book had four emotions that can attack the heart.  Those four emotions are Guilt - what I owe you, then there is Anger: what You Owe Me, next is Greed: what I owe me and last is Jealousy: What God owes me.  These are the four emotions that cause disruptions in our lives and withing the lives of those around us.  I enjoyed that the author used examples from his own life and those he knows to show how these emotions play out in real life - I feel like it makes the book more relatable then.  This is a book that makes you look at your own heart and what you could work on in your own life. 

I did also like the option of the study guide in the back if you were to use this as a book for studying with others!  I also enjoyed that he tried to use humor to make a point - I don't know that it always worked - but I do think that it helps with some of the points. 

The author does have a section in the book for parents which at this time in my life as I don't have children wasn't of interest to me - but I could see it being helpful when I do have children.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review from Waterbrook Multnomah books blogging for books program.  I was not required to write a positie review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.
