I just finished reading “Enemies of the Heart” by Andy Stanley and found it to be very inline with the standard Andy Stanley books. It’s clear, practical advice for how to move past the destructive forces of guilt, anger, greed and jealousy.  Andy write is an easy, down-to-earth style that is sprinkled with stories from his own life experiences.  This book gives great, biblical advice for how to navigate the “heart problems” that so often own our feelings and our actions.  This would be a great resource to take into your next small group as it lends itself to experiences everyone has from time to time.  Stanley breaks down each heart issue with easy to follow advice with a section at the back full of small group discussion questions.  If you’ve been a Christian for a while you’re probably not going to read anything that’s a pure revelation.  Much of the advice Stanley gives is the status quo.  However when life comes at you and gives you circumstances that challenge your “quo,” you’ll have this smartly written book to go to for advice.  I’d recommend this book without reservation.
