It has damaged relationships since the time of Cain and Abel, and still does today if we let it. In this wise and compassionate book, R.T.

This was both a surprising and relieving subject to see discuss, because there is so much “little discuss” that I feel with a little bit of bravery, we must sometimes take the chance and challenge ourselves and what we think and talk about.

One of them….jealousy.

To say we are immune is denying ourselves, the truth that we are still imperfect and struggle with imperfections and sometimes those imperfections tend to manifest to the best of all struggles.

What I found really intriguing about this
R.T. Kendall has done it again. He writes in such a way that makes me go "wow, that is good". It is only after I think about it a while that I say, "Ouch, that hurt".

Jealousy can not only be in love relationships, but in friendships and in familial relationships, etc. in my family of six girls, we were bred to be competitive of each other. Whether that was right or wrong I don't know. I didn't like it. I got this book to rid my life of petty jealous feelings and it has worked! I reference it sometimes, but other than that I feel much better about my relationships and I purged the unrealistic jealousy that I had. Great book.
This book was pretty insightful. Especially around the holidays where you can see sparks of jealously flare. I thought it was nice how the author shared with us his own experiences with jealousy as well as the bible's reference with the topic. I would say this book is sort of like a guide, helping you to become a better person.
It was a good book. I especially appreciated the author's honesty and vulnerability as he shared his own struggles with jealousy. I got several insights from the book that I'll be using in teaching, not just on the subject of jealousy, but on various subjects that he discussed in relation to his main theme.
Content is good. Read as a part of a group Bible study. Not a big fan of the author's style.
It's a decent book but not the book to read if you are battling jealousy in a relationship
