first blog for books
I'm finally reviewing my first book. I've moved a little slower the last few months when it comes to reading but I'd like to say I'm back at it again! This is a great program- and you can help me if you'd like by ranking my review at the bottom. The more reviews I receive, the more options of books I have to choose from in the future.
Enemies of the Heart by Andy Stanley was an easy read. That is one of my favorite things about Andy Stanley is that he writes books that are pretty easy to pick up and read anytime. This one focused on the destructive power of four issues- guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy. I felt like he had some good practical ideas of how to break through some of these issues. He also had good stories that I related to. At one point of the book, he focused a chapter that spoke to the fact that these four issues in adults are often passed onto our children. I appreciated this chapter more than the rest.
There is a small group guide in the back and I will definitely suggest this book to small groups in the future to check out. I'm giving this book 3.5 stars out of 5.
