Breaking Free from the Four Emotions That Control You

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Break free from the destructive power of guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy.
Divorce. Job loss. Estrangement from family members. Broken friendships.
The difficult circumstances you are dealing with today are likely being fed by one of four emotional forces that compels you to act in undesirable ways, sometimes even against your will.
Andy Stanley explores each of these destructive forces—guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy—and how they infiltrate your life and damage your relationships. He says that, left unchallenged they have the power to destroy your home, your career, and your friendships.
In Enemies of the Heart, Andy offers practical, biblical direction to help you fight back, to take charge of those feelings that mysteriously control you, and to restore your broken relationships.
Includes a six-week discussion guide—a valuable resource for small groups!

Publishers Weekly Review

Nov 28, 2005 – I can't believe I said that!" These words formed the catalyst for Stanley's new book about the hurtful emotions that can reside in the Christian heart. As pastor of a large Atlanta-area congregation, Stanley has had many opportunities to see the results of what he calls "spiritual heart disease." He identifies four "life-blocking agents" that can damage our hearts permanently: guilt, anger, greed and jealousy. Stanley reviews each one, then offers a more detailed diagnosis using the Bible and his life experiences. The bottom line, he says, is "a debt-to-debtor dynamic that always causes an imbalance." Anger says, "You owe me"; greed says, "I owe me"; guilt says, "I owe you"; and jealousy says, "God owes me." Especially useful are Stanley's antidotes to these heart problems, transcending mere platitudes to hands-on, life-changing actions. Feel guilty? Confess. Angry? Forgive. Greedy? Give generously. Jealous? Celebrate others' success. Stanley's breezy, conversational tone is both humorous and pointed, and his knowledge of old horror movies (referenced in the title and the book's content) adds a unique touch. Additional chapters on how to teach these heart-healthy principles to children and a discussion of lust round out this hard-hitting, fun-loving book.

Enemies of the Heart

An amazing book!! It really opens your eyes and heart to things that may seem like common sense but are so hard to know how to deal with and this book really helps to give you the tools on how to do so. It's helped me incredibly and although still an ongoing process, it's opened my eyes and changed how I deal with issues in my life through what He wants of me, not what I want or how I want to handle things and situations. Thank you so much Andy, your teachings of the Lord are just incredible.

A must READ,

For every thing we face in life, this books is a perfect stitch between our pain and Gods promise for our life. We are capable of so much love and kindness. We barely tap into it and Stanley's genius on identifying these enemies and showing us how to heal from them is JUST WHAT WE ALL NEED to move forward from the muck that's holding us back.
If you wanna finally heal, READ THIS BOOK....NOW!!!!
