Item description for Envy: The Enemy Within: Overcoming the Hidden Emotion That Holds God's Plans Hostage by Bob Sorge...

Drawing upon his own pastoral experience, plus the admitted burden of his own envy, Sorge reveals why comparison of ministry and spiritual gifts to that of fellow believers is to be avoided at all costs so that we do not hamstring God's plan for individual growth and the accomplishment of His purposes.

Publishers Description
Envy might well be termed the silent sin. Because while all of us envy others to some extent, few of us acknowledge our problem out loud, let alone try to overcome it and move forward. Bob Sorge draws upon his own pastoral experience-plus the admitted burden of his own envy-to show why and how it can adversely affect the ministry of a church and even prevent revival in people's lives. Sorge reveals why comparison of our ministry and spiritual gifts to that of our fellow believers is to be avoided at all costs so that we do not hamstring God's plan for our growth and the accomplishment of His purposes. This is a must-read for leaders of all churches, great and small-and anyone who wants the peace that comes with a life free of envy.

Reviews - What do customers think about Envy: The Enemy Within?

The everybody sin  Dec 10, 2004

I have never heard of or read Bob Sorge until now, but this book is well written and simple to understand. It was loaned to me by a friend and I was immediately taken by its straight forward attack of an insidious enemy.

Sorge's precepts are supported by biblical reference, the use of which is plentiful. I see something in Sorge's writing that I like very much. When scripture is brought into the chapter, he often brings clarity to its relevance through explanation and description, i.e., I am not expected to be a theologian to understand how the author wants to apply the information. There are several illustrations from his own life and he is transparent enough to allow for believability.

It seems to me that the book has broad application in humanity as each of us deals with envy. It deals with the Church in this, there are numerous references to the envy taking place between churchmen in each city or region. Whereas many areas are seeing "community building" taking place in their town others are still working to outdo their fellow pastor. Great strength comes to the church through unity of purpose under Christ!

Sorge makes a beautiful summary of what we'd be like minus envy when he says, "When we are rooted, grounded and perfected in love, our sense of identity in God is so profoundly fulfilled that nothing we see with the natural eye can produce an envious response within us. We wish for nothing that anyone else has because we already have everything there is to have- an extravagant, intimate relationship with the Lord of the universe" (pg 132,133).

Enjoy this book and get a copy for your pastor.
Necessary!  Feb 21, 2004
My mom told me she wanted me to read a chapter and the end of this book called "Envy" just because it was really good, etc. I couldn't just read the last chapter, so I started reading knowing that I definitely didn't have a problem with envy or jealousy because I'm just not like that. By the end of the first few pages, I was repenting to God for all the envy that I've harbored against my friends, family and fellow Christians! I even sought the forgiveness of a few people whom I felt that I had limited their ministry because of my envy.

EVERY Christian needs to read this book. I know that YOU don't have a problem with envy, but just buy this book anyways. You can read it and share it with your friends who are envious. ;-) This is definitely worth the money!
