In this compelling and helpful book, previously published as It Came From Within!, pastor and author Andy Stanley wrestles with what he calls"four invaders of the heart": guilt, anger, greed, and jealousy. One or another of these caustic emotions sabotages lives on a daily basis and destroys relationships. But Stanley assures listeners that there is hope.
In his trademark style - smart, engaging, and popular - he examines where these powerful forces come from and reveals effective strategies for overcoming them and moving toward healing and maturity.

Andy Stanley frankly addresses fear, jealousy, anger & greed in the context of how these issues of the heart impact our daily life & reactions to both inconsequential & crisis situations.
It IS challenging - it is a mirror - but very worthwhile & loaded with authenticity - a hallmark of Andy Stanley's ministry. I am now on my 3rd listening of this recording. excellent stuff.
yes. WOW!. Makes you think about how you live your life currently and what God really wants. I knew I had some baggage like everyone does but I never used this approach to look at myself better.
the ah- ha moments
going to get in paperback so I can do the workbook parts and refer to others
I very much enjoyed this book. You can deal with your heart issues so much better when you understand why you feel the way you feel. He really digs into some core issues and how you can bring healing to your heart by finding those issues and bringing them to Christ.
Yes. It gets beneath the surface and uncovers destructive emotions that will eventually derail us if not dealt with.
How anger says: "You owe me." Greed says: "I owe me," Jealousy says: "God owe me." Guilt says: "I owe you."
Lloyd James read the book well.
Yes, how some of the poison in my heart was exposed! Now I am taking steps to clear up the poison so it does not effect most important relationships in my life.
The author, Andy Stanley, deals with a serious and sensitive subject matter and right through the audio, he manages to make the listener think, 'How does this apply to me and others in my life?' It has helped me to further understand the 'why' in how we behave and to look behind the behaviours to see the reason a person behaves in a certain way, instead of just the behaviours which are the out working of a much deeper issue. I love his sense of humour, I often smiled and sometimes laughed out loud, however there were times when the Lord touched my heart so deeply, I wanted to weep for the lack of understanding and compassion in the world.
THIS BOOK CAN HELP ALL WHO LISTEN.
WISH ALL WOULD LISTEN COULD CHANGE THE WORD.
I enjoyed listening to this book, because Mr. Stanley really helps you to dig in and evaluate your own heart condition. I am a very structured person and thought I had a good grip on things when it comes to my heart condition, however, in light of this book, I quickly realized, I need to prayerfully consider all my actions and what is lingering around in my heart. He has encouraged me to memorize Proverbs 4:23 which is a reminder to guard our hearts. I'm grateful I bought this book. I recommend this to EVERYONE!
Had I known it was a Christian book, wouldn't have bought it. I read it to the end just because I never leave a book unfinished. It's discipline. It contains ideas that can be rescued... I wouldn't recommend it to any non Christian.
I listened to the book twice, once by myself and once with my husband, now we are praying about doing a small group study with this book. Never realized how much my heart was wounded and needed surgery to heal some deep hurts. Not a quick fix, allow God time to speak to you through the wisdom in this book, taking time to embrace your pains and release others, yourself and the pain of it all to God! Andy has way of sharing his own struggles, bring laughter and teach the lesson in each chapter that makes you want to keep listening/reading!
