Very good in all but one aspect.
This book was very good in teaching us about the inner sins that affect us and give good ways to combat and defeat them. The one exception I had was Stanley's take on Lust. He seems to see Lust as a thing that was corrupted with Adam's original sin. No where in the Bible is lust ever spoken of as a positive thing. Stanley fails to see that Godly love for one's spouse (or future spouse, or natural attraction towards the opposite sex) as being something other than what we know of as "lust". This could simply be a definition thing, but I believe there is a danger to saying "lust can be a holy/good thing." Lust is always defined as the desire to gratify oneself by the use of another as an object. There is no way that can be holy. But that is not to say we are incapable of loving or desiring another for 'their own good,' but this is not Lust. Lust is, in fact, commonly referred to as one of the "7 Deadly Sins." I understand this list does not appear in scripture, but it is widely accepted at being a sin. Things did not become sinful after the Fall, sins are always sins.

Answers to conflict and disorder amongst ourselves
This book gives solutions to people in conflict and disorder with each other. The title and the introduction don't do justice to the content. Even the first few chapters where Andy builds his foundations are a bit slow, but when he starts to get into the actual enemies of the heart, and how to fight them, and how to pass this on to our children, it is riveting, and VERY relevant. Everyone should read this book who wants to represent Jesus Christ in this world.
