I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

Enemies of the Heart by Andy Stanley
Andy takes us through each "condition", showing us the symptoms, as well as the cure. God can begin His work in us, once we identify the "condition" that needs curing and that is often the hardest part of the process - digging deep and admitting the cause. One of the most memorable statements made, is found as he concludes his book: “Like a doctor whose skilled hands poke and probe until they find a sensitive spot, so God’s truth has a way of finding its mark. But none of that can happen until you give God access to those sensitive, otherwise off-limits areas of your life. If you do, what may begin as a threatening and uncomfortable revelation may result in a freedom you never knew existed.” I would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone - in fact, I will most likely bring it up as consideration for a Connect Hour class (Sunday School) for the fall. The book also contains a study guide, so it would be perfect to use in a small group setting.
