Another Bible Study I completed with a group of ladies from my church was Enemies of the Heart by Andy Stanley. I really enjoyed this book and I can already tell I am going to read it more than once as a reminder.
The writing was easy and witty (sometimes nonfiction can be dry to me) and I thought the videos that went along with the book were great. They really drove the points home.
Each chapter touched on a different “enemy” of our hearts and why we think the way we do. Andy talked about how they are heart issues and we need to change our hearts to change the emotion. This is hard to do. However, with God, nothing is impossible. I took a lot away with this book and I anticipate that each time I read it, something else will be revealed. I highly recommend it to anyone.

About the Book:
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.
