Publisher's 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.

good soul searcher

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

yes. WOW!. Makes you think about how you live your life currently and what God really wants. I knew I had some baggage like everyone does but I never used this approach to look at myself better.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

Kept re-listening to this book, hoping to find any usable insight, knowledge...

There is nothing new, insightful or hopeful in Mr. Stanley’s book. In fact, his writings are quite sarcastic and dismissive. Even the narrator, who is usually quite good, drones on and on. I kept hoping he would tell me something new but he doesn’t. It’s already been said many times over, and by authors who don’t annoyingly toot their own horn so much with their stories. I really wanted to learn something from this book but after listening to it at least 10 times, I’ve given up. It’s awful.

Wow! This book cuts to the chase. Biblical principles.

I just wish Andy read his own books. I listen to his preaching online & wouldn’t lover to hear his true emotion in this book.

Great book well read.

This was a good book well written with many challenges. Would recommend this to anyone serious about challenging the enemies of their heart.
